Reports: Angels agree to deal with RHP Harvey

The Los Angeles Angels and right-hander Matt Harvey have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, according to multiple reports Tuesday night.

Harvey will make $11 million, plus the chance for $3 million in incentives based on games started, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred. Mark Feinsand of MLB.com was first to report the deal.

Harvey, 29, was a combined 7-9 with a 4.94 ERA in 32 games (28 starts) with the Cincinnati Reds and New York Mets last season. A former All-Star and Cy Young Award candidate with the Mets, Harvey was dealt to Cincinnati by New York after posting a 7.00 ERA through his first eight appearances of the season.

With Cincinnati, Harvey had a 4.50 ERA. He is 41-44 with a 3.80 ERA in 133 games (128 starts) over his six-year major league career.

Harvey rebounded from Tommy John surgery to win a career-best 13 games in 2015. He slumped to 4-10 the following season before having season-ending surgery to address thoracic outlet syndrome and went just 5-7 with a 6.70 ERA in 2017.

The Angels drafted Harvey in the third round out of high school in 2007, but he instead went to the University of North Carolina and was a first-round pick by the Mets (No. 7 overall) in the 2010 draft.
