Mets RHP Matt Harvey said on Monday in Port St. Lucie that the Mets haven't yet brought up the idea of him signing an extension, but noted he hasn't "shied away" from the possibility (Feb. 15).
"I've never shied away from it, I never said I wouldn't consider it," Harvey said. "But I haven't heard anything considering that."
Harvey, 26, is arbitration-eligible again after this season and next, and is set to become a free agent after the 2018 season.
Harvey is represented by Scott Boras, who ordinarily prefers his clients to hit free agency in order to maximize their potential value.
Mets GM Sandy Alderson said earlier this month that the team is open to potential extensions with all of their young starting pitchers, and RHP Jacob deGrom recently said he'd be willing to discuss one.
Harvey has posted a 2.53 ERA and 1.00 WHIP while averaging 9.46 K/9 in 427 career innings. He'll earn $4.3 million this season.
