The Mets requested that Matt Harvey agree to a Minor League assignment. He refused to accept and will be designated for assignment.

When a player's contract is designated for assignment -- often abbreviated "DFA" -- that player is immediately removed from his club's 40-man roster, and 25-man roster if he was on that as well. Within seven days of the transaction (it was previously 10 days), the player must either be traded, released or placed on irrevocable outright waivers.

 

According to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo and Newsday's Tim Healy, the New York Mets asked Matt Harvey to go to the minor leagues, but the pitcher refused to it, forcing the Mets to designate him for assignment.

After this, Matt Harvey's Mets career effectively comes to an end. He ended up with a 34-37 record with a 3.66 ERA over six seasons at New York.
