Matt Harvey undergoes successful Tommy John surgery

The Mets announced Matt Harvey underwent successfully Tommy John surgery on his right elbow today.

The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Florida.

Harvey was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow in late August. He was originally going to attempt to rehab the injury, but ultimately decided to have the operation.

Harvey is expected to miss the entire 2014 season.
