Matt Harvey will proceed with Tommy John surgery that will likely cost him the 2014 season, the Mets announced. Dr. James Andrew will perform the procedure later this month.

Harvey reached the surgery decision without ever going to the Mets’ complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., to begin the planned throwing program. He recently had been getting physical therapy at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

Mets officials, gathered for planning meetings this week at the team’s Florida complex, expected this result and had been plotting their offseason strategy to pursue starting pitching figuring Harvey would be unavailable.
