Matt Harvey will visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday, ‘feels great’

Matt Harvey 1 polaroidMatt Harvey told reporters he will see Dr. James Andrews on Monday and he has yet to get a second opinion on the UCL tear in his elbow.

Harvey said he still hopes to avoid surgery.

“Everybody’s different, so you never know,” Harvey said, according to Marc Carig of Newsday. “Everything feels great and I still feel very optimistic.”

Harvey talked with reporters while visiting a firehouse (Engine 54, Ladder 4 and Battalion 9) in Manhattan with Jeff Wilpon, David Wright and Zack Wheeler earlier today.
