The Mets will avoid arbitration with RHP Matt Harvey, agreeing to a deal worth $5.125 million that contains $100,000 in performance bonuses, reports James Wagner of the NY Times.

Harvey made $4.325 million last season.

He had a 4.86 ERA (3.47 FIP) and 1.46 WHIP with 76 strikeouts in 92 2/3 innings (17 starts) in 2016 before Thoracic outlet syndrome that resulted in surgery ended his season after his start on July 4.

The Mets have not yet talked with their young starting pitchers about about multiyear-contract-extensions beyond their current deals, Mets GM Sandy Alderson told reporters during a lunch Thursday at Citi Field.

"I don't see it as a pressing issue," Alderson said, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin.

In late-December, Alderson made a similar statement, saying he had no plans to talk contract extensions prior to spring training.

The deadline for teams and unsigned arbitration-eligible players to file salary figures is January 13, after which the final salary will be determined during an arbitration hearing.

The Mets intend to take a more strict position on their potential arbitration cases than they have in past, Newsday's Marc Carig reported Thursday.

According to Carig, if the two sides cannot agree by Friday's deadline, the Mets have no issue letting the situation play out in arbitration.

This year's remaining, unsigned arbitration-eligible players for the Mets are...

Yanks and Mets share Series odds 00:03:31
Baseball Night in New York wonders whether Las Vegas made the right call by giving the Yankees and Mets the exact same World Series odds.

The Yankees currently have 13-1 odds to win the World Series -- the same odds as the Mets -- according to information provided by The Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

The Cubs have the best odds at 3-1, followed by the Red Sox at 5-1, the Dodgers at 10-1, the Indians at 11-1, and the Nationals at 12-1.

The Yankees finished 84-78 last season after having a firesale over the summer -- including trades of Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller, and Carlos Beltran -- missing the playoffs for the third time in the last four seasons.

The Mets will not be talking contract extensions with any of their current starting pitchers before spring training, Sandy Alderson said Dec. 24, according to Daily News reporter Kristie Ackert.

"We're not thinking about it now, it really hasn't been our focus," Alderson told Ackert. "It's probably not something that is going to happen before we head to spring training."

GEICO SportsNite: Harvey on 2017 00:00:56
Matt Harvey talks about his return from surgery at a New York Mets benefit event in Queens, New York.

Mets pitcher Matt Harvey said he feels healthy and has experienced no pain in his arm when throwing this offseason, he told reporters at a team charity event on Wednesday. 

Harvey underwent surgery in July for his thoracic outlet syndrome, which caused him pain and tingling in his pitching hand. About a month ago, Harvey said, he began regular throwing again.

For the second time this offseason, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said he and his staff are planning to change the workload and routine of their starting pitchers, he told reporters Tuesday at the Winter Meetings.

Last month, Alderson said he is open to occasionally using a six-man rotation and mixing in spot starters so guys can get extended rest between appearances.

Teams have asked about RHP Robert Gsellman, but Sandy Alderson has told them he's not available, sources told ESPN.com's Adam Rubin.

Gsellman, 23, had a 2.42 ERA (2.63 FIP) and 1.27 WHIP, while striking out 42 batters in 44 2/3 innings, during seven starts and one relief appearance for the Mets in 2016.

Mets Hot Stove: Matt Harvey 00:04:12
The Mets Hot Stove panel discusses Matt Harvey's injury rehab and their expectations from the right-handed hurler in 2017.

In July, 2016, Mets RHP Matt Harvey had season-ending surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, which was done to restore feeling in his pitching arm and fingers.

According to former Mets GM and SNY analyst Jim Duquette, Harvey is not yet throwing off a mound, but he's feeling strong, on schedule with his post-surgery, off-season throwing program and will be 100% ready for spring training.

"He's had a great deal of time to work out and focus on his body and strength. We expect him to come back and be the Matt Harvey of old," his agent, Scott Boras, told reporters in early November at MLB's GM Meetings. "He's throwing free and easy and he's strong."

Mets RHP Matt Harvey is 'doing great,' and, 'throwing the ball well,' his agent, Scott Boras, recently told former Mets GM and SNY analyst Jim Duquette.

In July, 2016, Harvey had surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, which was done to restore feeling in his pitching arm and fingers.

According to Duquette, Harvey is not yet throwing off a mound, but feels 100% healthy and is on schedule with his post-surgery, off-season throwing program.

Mets Hot Stove: Matt Harvey 00:04:12
The Mets Hot Stove panel discusses Matt Harvey's injury rehab and their expectations from the right-handed hurler in 2017.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said RHP Matt Harvey "looks great" and "is in tremendous shape" as he resumes throwing after thoracic outlet syndrome cut his 2016 season short. 

Harvey, 27, was diagnosed with TOS when trapped nerves caused numbness and discomfort in his pitching arm. He made his last start in early July and is expected to be ready for spring training.

TOS isn't considered a "death sentence" for pitchers, a former Mets prospect earlier said, and several other pitchers who have underwent surgery for TOS have the numbers to back it up.

Bartolo Colon recently signed a one-year, $12.5 million deal to pitch for the Braves next season, where he will join R.A. Dickey in 2017.

Nevertheless, even without Colon, the Mets are still set up to have a terrific starting rotation next season, able to lean on Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman. However, their depth beyond them is a bit of a question mark...

The Mets haven't really commented on what their payroll will look like next seaosn. But, the way I see it, they can probably add roughly $50 million to their payroll next season, which - right now - is projected to open around $105 million when you factor in raises and players under contract.

I explained my reasoning here earlier this week, which is more or less the same conclusion reached Thursday by ESPN.com's Adam Rubin...

That $105 million does not include Yoenis Cespedes, Bartolo Colon or Neil Walker.

Harvey also attended the event, but did not speak to reporters.

Team doctors are telling the Mets that Jacob deGrom, Steven Matz and Matt Harvey should all be 100 percent healthy at the start of next season, ESPN's Buster Olney reported this past weekend.According to Olney, the Mets believe Harvey will be the biggest question mark as he returns from July surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). However, Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, recently said his client will be fully healthy by spring training."You kind of rely on the doctors here, and the doctor was extremely positive about the results of what he found when he did the operation, and the relief that he gave Matt," Boras told MLB.com. "This is not like a Tommy John, where you have a ligament issue. It's really about relief of nerve compression."

Matt Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, said his client will be fully healthy by the start of Spring Training following season-ending surgery to correct Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

"You kind of rely on the doctors here, and the doctor was extremely positive about the results of what he found when he did the operation, and the relief that he gave Matt," Boras told MLB.com.

"It was really just a nerve compression. He didn't have sensation [in his fingers]. And so clearly, the procedure allowed that relief where the nerve is now free and he should have full feeling in his hand," Boras continued. "This is not like a Tommy John, where you have a ligament issue. It's really about relief of nerve compression."

After undergoing elbow surgery last month, New York Mets RHP Jacob deGrom expects to adhere to his normal throwing program in spring training in February, he told reporters Friday after meeting with students at P.S. 89 in Queens.

DeGrom had surgery in September to reposition the ulnar nerve in his right elbow, which had been causing him pain when throwing earlier in the season.

"Talking to the doctors, I don't know what really caused this," deGrom said. "He said it can pop up like that. Your nerve can get messed up, but there was definitely stress last year."

Thank you, Mets, for a wild season. In spring training, settling for a wild card loss would have been a major disappointment. However, at 60-62 on Aug. 19, with 70 percent of the Opening Day lineup on the disabled list, simply getting to the wild card seemed like an unrealistic goal. Nevertheless, the Mets attained it. It was an amazing run and I'm glad I got to experience watching it.

Mets RHP Matt Harvey said Monday he is feeling well, though his rehab from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome isn't going as quickly as he originally hoped.

"Rehab's a little slow but it's coming along," he continued. "I'm doing whatever the doctors say and it's a little bit slower than I thought, but I'm doing everything I can to get back on the field."

"I don't care who is not here, there are no excuses," Mets manager Terry Collins said during a post-game rant to reporters Aug. 11, which followed an embarrassing 9-0 loss to the D-backs at Citi Field.

In response to one question, he called out his team's effort, their respect for the game and their passion to play and entertain fans. He threatened that if his team didn't begin to play better, he and GM Sandy Alderson would consider replacing them with guys on the Triple-A roster. He then stood up, took no more questions, marched out of the room and gave the same speech to his team.

New York Mets RHP Seth Lugo threw seven innings of one-run ball in a 5-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Sunday at Citi Field to keep the Mets within one game of the second wild card spot.

Lugo (3-2), making his fourth start this season after being a reliever in July and early August, won his third straight start and improved to 3-1 with a 2.19 ERA as a starter. The Mets are 11-5 since Lugo made his first start and remained one game behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second wild card spot.

The Mets, who have been without Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler, and will likely skip Jacob deGrom for multiple starts, have had to rely on younger, less-experienced pitchers down the stretch, including Robert Gsellman, an 11th-round pick in 2011 who threw six innings of one-run ball in Saturday's win, and Lugo, a 34th-round pick in 2011.

Video: Collins discusses Matt Harvey's season-ending surgery


The surgery was performed Monday, July 18, by preeminent TOS surgeon Dr. Thompson in St. Louis.

The surgery removed a rib that is constricting nerves and blood vessels - that travel through his shoulder - where the rib connects to the upper spine. Removing the rib creates space and alleviates the constriction, which will restore feeling in Harvey's pitching arm and fingers.

Matt Harvey gave up 11 hits and six runs -- five earned -- in just 3.2 innings Monday.

In the fourth inning, with the bases loaded, he got a comeback, ground ball to the mound for what could have been an inning-ending double play. However, his throw home skipped behind catcher Travis d'Arnaud. The run scored, as did two more in subsequent at bats and Harvey's day was done.

"It's part of baseball. You go through a lot of ups and downs," Harvey said, noting that he's been struggling all season to be consistent with his delivery, arm slot and command. "Whether it was slider, or curveball, or changeup, or fastball, things were just out of whack."

Mets manager Terry Collins, outfielder Curtis Granderson and starter Matt Harvey react to the Mets' 5-0 loss to the Nationals.

New York Mets RHP Matt Harvey's start on Tuesday lasted just 3 2/3 innings due to an 83-minute rain delay in Tuesday's 5-0 loss to the Washington Nationals.

Harvey allowed one run, four hits and three walks and left the game with runners on the corners and two outs before rain stopped play.

"I worked so hard over the year to finally figure some stuff out, and then Mother Nature takes over," Harvey said after the game. "I'm not really looking at it as stepping stones anymore. It's a long season. There are battles throughout."
