NEW YORK (AP) -

Mets right-hander Matt Harvey has had elbow-reconstruction surgery, and he will miss the entire 2014 season.

Dr. James Andrews performed the operation that repaired a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in Harvey's right elbow on Tuesday. Recovery from Tommy John surgery typically takes about a year.

The 24-year-old Harvey learned of the injury in August. The National League's starter in the All-Star game at Citi Field initially said he could strengthen the muscles around the ligament and avoid surgery.

Harvey went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA and 191 strikeouts in 178 1-3 innings this year.

    A law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée to an NFL executive five months ago, while league executives have insisted they didn't see the violent images until this week. The person played The Associated Press a 12-second voicemail from an NFL office number on April 9 confirming the video arrived. A female voice expresses thanks and says: "You're right. It's terrible."
