NEW YORK -- Mets right-hander Matt Harvey intends to undergo season-ending surgery to address thoracic outlet syndrome, with the expectation that he will be fully ready for the 2017 season, agent Scott Boras told ESPN. Matt Besler Jersey .Dr. Robert Thompson is expected to perform the procedure sometime in the next week in St. Louis.[Manager] Terry [Collins] and I met with Matt today and although we all feel badly for him, we expressed our support in this decision and know he will work as hard as possible to get back on the field for the 2017 season, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said?in a statement.Harveys issue involves muscles in the neck and shoulder impinging a nerve in his right shoulder. Thompson will remove one of Harveys ribs to provide space, which should reduce the compression on the affected nerve and restore feeling in his pitching arm and fingers.Boras said that a nerve-blocking injection, which could work as a short-term fix, would not have been an appropriate remedy.The doctors clearly recommended that he have this done, mainly so that he can be ready for 17, Boras said. The rehab on this is six months. Now, if there was a small window of a season, you might be able to take a shot. Its actually Botox, which relaxes the muscles. Thats not a long-term solution.The only way this is going to be treated appropriately -- and obviously we dont want to do anything to affect next year -- is to get this surgically taken care of.The Mets pitcher also tweeted the he expects to be out of touch [and] stick to the business of getting healthy.Boras said the issue explains why Harvey had produced underwhelming numbers this season. Harvey is 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA in 17 starts.He just didnt feel he had the command and feeling, Boras said. He just didnt really feel he was himself mechanically. He couldnt stay behind the ball. He felt strong body-wise, but just something was there. Finally, when this thing got a little more pronounced, we said, Lets take a look at this potential option, and got him to Dr. Thompson. Sure enough, he strongly tested positive for TOS.Hes felt this way since spring training, but he wanted to gut it out, try to do it, until finally hes going, Look, Im just feeling like I dont feel the baseball the same. Once we heard that, I was like, Maybe we have a TOS situation, and got him over to Dr. Thompson.Alderson noted Thursday that any surgery involves risk and there is a chance Harvey will not regain his All-Star form. Still, Boras expressed confidence that the Dark Knight will rise again.I remember Kenny Rogers had it done, Boras said. A good example is the Cardinals [Jaime] Garcia had it done recently. So weve had very good results because basically the pitchers can feel their fingertips and the baseball, so they can get their command back. At the extension, at the release point, you have the feeling back that you didnt have before. So it really affects where the ball is located.Boras had not been thrilled last season when the Mets had Harvey throw 216 innings, including the postseason. That was the most innings ever by an MLB pitcher in his first season back from Tommy John surgery.However, Boras said there is no conclusive link between that workload and the TOS issue.When youre talking about a nerve impingement, muscularity, that kind of thing, Im not sure you can draw conclusions one way or the other, Boras said. I cant draw any conclusions other than we were fine in 15 and felt this in 16.Right-hander Logan Verrett is poised to take Harveys start Saturday against the Washington Nationals. Collins said he expected Verrett would open in the rotation for the second half of the season as well.Alderson indicated Thursday, before Harvey had officially resolved to have surgery, that the Mets would at least investigate external starting-pitching options. The teams pursuit of that route will probably intensify now that its clear Harvey will miss the remainder of the season.Zack Wheeler has experienced a pair of setbacks this season as he works back from Tommy John surgery. Wheeler has not yet resumed throwing off the top of the mound since receiving a cortisone injection in June to address nerve irritation in the elbow. He would not be ready to join the Mets until late August at the earliest. Custom USA Soccer Jerseys . -- Jimmie Johnson held off a teammate, passed a pair of Hall of Famers, and dominated once more at Dover. Tyler Boyd USA Jersey . The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club. http://www.soccerusateamonline.com/Antonee-Robinson-America-Jersey/ . The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and final big league season, has said hed like to play the outfield. Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees finish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. SHANGHAI -- Hideki Matsuyama arrived at the HSBC Champions as the first Japanese player in nearly two decades to reach the top 10 in the world ranking. His 19 birdies over 36 holes in biting chill and swirling wind helped explain how he got there.Even as the weather shifted dramatically Friday at Sheshan International, Matsuyama kept piling up the birdies. One last birdie on the par-5 18th gave him a 7-under 65 and a three-shot lead going into the weekend of the final World Golf Championships event of the year.Matsuyama was at 13-under 131 and led by three shots over defending champion Russell Knox (68) and Bill Haas (67). He shouldnt have been surprised by the result because it was his eighth consecutive score in the 60s dating to the second round of the Tour Championship.Rain the last two days gave way to a strong wind when Matsuyama was warming up, and the wind made the sharp dip of temperatures into the 50s feel even worse.Fifteen players still managed to break 70 because of the rain-softened greens, and while Matsuyamas 65 was the best score of the second round, making it even more impressive was that he also had two bogeys. On Thursday, he had 10 birdies against four bogeys.Matsuyama already is having his biggest year since he began playing regularly round the world in 2014. He overcame a two-shot deficit over the last two holes and beat Rickie Fowler in the Phoenix Open. He had another top 10 in the Masters. Two weeks ago, he won the Japan Open for his ninth victory worldwide. He was runner-up to Justin Thomas in Malaysia last week, pushing him to No. 10.SIME DARBY LPGA MALAYSIAKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Amy Yang holed a pitching wedge for eagle on the par-4 11th hole and stretched her lead to three strokes in the hot, humid and stormy Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia.The 27-year-old South Korean player had a 2-under 69 at TPC Kuala Lumpur, a day after shooting 63 to miss her own course record by a stroke. She parred the first 10, then hit the approach that landed on the front of the green, hopped and rolled in.Anna Nordqvist, Mi Jung Hur and Candie Kung were tied for second after the round that was delayed about two hours because of lightning -- accompanied by periods of heavy rain -- with the last group in the 16th fairway. Nordqvist had a 68, and Hur and Kung each shot 65 to match the best rounds of the day.Theyre playing TPC KKuala Lumpurs East Course, a week after Justin Thomas successfully defended his title on the West Course in the PGA Tours CIMB Classic. Matt Miazga USA Jersey. .Yang made her first bogey of the week after hitting into the water on the par-4 14th. She returned from the delay -- and lunch -- to hole a 20-footer for birdie on the par-5 16th. Both of her LPGA Tour victories have come in Asia, the first in 2013 in South Korea and the second last year in Thailand.Michelle Wie followed her opening 66 with a 70 to drop four strokes behind.POWERSHARES QQQ CHAMPIONSHIPTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Fred Couples shot a 4-under 68 in his first competitive round in eight months, while Bernhard Langer withdrew without hitting a shot in the PowerShares QQQ Championship.Returning from a chronic back injury, the 57-year-old Couples had three straight birdies on the back nine at Sherwood in the PGA Tour Champions playoff opener. He was tied for eighth, three strokes behind leader Colin Montgomerie.Langer re-aggravated a left knee injury at home in Florida doing routine spinning, had an MRI on Monday and wasnt able to play a practice round.Montgomerie shot a 65, closing with a birdie after nearly holing his approach on the par-4 18th. The Scot birdied the first three holes, and had four more on the back nine. He won in Canada this season for his fourth tour title and is fourth in the Charles Schwab Cup standings.Fred Funk was two strokes back at 67 along with Scott McCarron, Jim Carter, Joey Sindelar, Jerry Smith and Brandt Jobe.SANDERSON FARMS CHAMPIONSHIPJACKSON, Miss. -- Grayson Murray shot a 7-under 65 on Friday to take a two-shot lead in the Sanderson Farms Championship.The 23-year-old Murray, a rookie playing in his third career PGA Tour event, rebounded from an opening bogey on No. 9 to make eight birdies -- the last on the final hole. He had a 12-under 132 total at the Country Club of Jackson.Greg Owen (67) and Seamus Power (69) were for second, and Lucas Glover (69), Trey Mullinax (70), Graham DeLaet (69) and Brandon Hagy (68)were three strokes back.Kevin Streelman had a two-shot lead after shooting a 63 in the first round, but struggled to a 73 to fall four strokes behind Murray.
