Scott Boras, Harvey's agent, said in a text message that the bullpen was tough for Harvey to work on all of his pitches.
After sitting out the 2014 season, Harvey was the NL's Comeback Player of the Year in 2015 when he posted a 13-win season with a 2.71 ERA.
Alderson said Harvey's tenure faced "a very unfortunate and hard conclusion, not really of his own making". But he slumped the following year and had surgery to correct Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Shoulder issues brought an early end to his 2016 season and he hasn't been the same pitcher since.
The MLB rumors about Matt Harvey's next destination started nearly immediately.
"I try not to let emotion interfere with decision making, but empathy is part of making decisions", Alderson said.

Harvey was drafted by the Mets in the first round of the 2010 draft from the University of North Carolina and made his major league debut on July 26, 2012 with 11 strikeouts in 5.1 innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks. In May 2013, Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci wrote a feature on Harvey with the headline "The Dark Knight of Gotham", which became Harvey's moniker.
The Mets are set to designate Harvey for assignment this weekend, a move that paves the way for NY to cut or trade the 29 year-old right hander.
Harvey will now go through the waivers process before being traded or, presumably, released. The Mets moved Harvey to the bullpen in late April, a move he resisted.
In recent years, the New York Mets have prided themselves on strong pitching. And the results weren't any better, as he had a 10.50 ERA in four appearances. It worked at the time, as he pitched to a 3.04 ERA in four starts throughout their World Series run, but he has not been the same since.
Harvey underwent Tommy John Surgery after 2013, which was the beginning of the end for him.
"We feel like we failed Matt Harvey", Callaway said, referring to himself and pitching coach Dave Eiland.
