New York Mets ace Matt Harvey has voiced his frustrations with his Tommy John surgery before through the media and social media, but the latter is no longer an option. Harvey has deleted his Twitter account after posting a picture of himself post surgery.

The tweet Harvey sent out was to reflect on the six-month anniversary of his Tommy John Surgery as well as a picture of him in a hospital gown giving the camera the middle finger. Harvey quickly deleted the tweet followed shortly by deleting his entire account.

It is unknown if the Mets got into Harvey’s ear and told him to delete the account, but if they did this is the latest chapter of Harvey and his rocky relationship with the Mets. Harvey had previously been upset that the Mets were leaving him in Florida to continue his rehab as the the team traveled to New York. Harvey also had another incident on Twitter as he feuded with a New York radio host and some hostile Yankee fans who have criticized him for his nightlife.

The State Of Cheating In Baseball

Harvey is still a long way from returning to the mound and may be even further away from being the dominate pitcher he once was. Tommy John is a hit or miss surgery that has advanced in such a short time that almost all cases are deemed a success no matter how the player performs in his return. Harvey will find out soon enough if he can return to the dominante force he once was.

This year alone, 14 MLB starting pitchers have or are opting to have Tommy John surgery. The surgery is quickly becoming an epidemic among starting pitching.
