Brad Penner-US PRESSWIRE

Harvey will miss all of the 2014 season after having the surgery, which is expected to take place in October.

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey still does not have a date set for when he will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a torn elbow ligament, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Oct. 4 that Harvey would go under the knife later in the month. Harvey is currently spending time in Los Angeles, but noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure. Andrews practices medicine out of Florida and Alabama.

Harvey will miss all of the 2014 season after having the surgery on his ulnar collateral ligament. Typical recovery time for Tommy John is around 10 months to a year. If everything goes well and he suffers no major setbacks, Harvey should then be ready for the beginning of spring training in 2015.

Harvey, 24, had posed one of the biggest threats to Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw in the race for the Cy Young Award. Over 26 starts, Harvey posted a 2.27 ERA and 0.93 WHIP while holding opposing batters to just a .530 OPS. He made his last start Aug. 24 and initially considered rehabbing the injury before deciding to have the surgery.
