Matt Harvey's 2016 season is over.

The New York Mets right-hander will have season-ending surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, according to multiple reports.

In 17 starts this season, the 27-year-old went 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP and 76 strikeouts in 92 2/3 innings. Last season, Harvey pitched a career-high 216 innings between the regular season and postseason. He was 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA in 29 regular-season starts and 2-0 with a 3.04 ERA in four playoff starts.

Harvey has struggled all season but didn't reveal any physical problems until after his most recent start, when he allowed five earned runs in 3 2/3 innings Sunday.

"He came in the training room afterwards and said that his shoulder was dead, his arm was dead, that there was no energy there and that he couldn't feel the ball," Mets manager Terry Collins told on Thursday.

It's the latest injury setback for the defending National League champions, who have confirmed that fellow starters Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz are pitching with bone spurs in their elbows.

Harvey also missed the entire 2014 season after Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow.
