“The Dark Knight” was annointed as the face of the New York Mets franchise after making his debut in 2012 with a near-100 mph fastball in his arsenal. Harvey became a fan favorite in Gotham and he basically hit superstar status when he was picked to start the 2013 MLB All-Star Game, which was held at the Mets’ home ballpark, Citi Field. Later that season, though, fans were heartbroken when Harvey suffered an elbow injury, forcing him to undergo Tommy John surgery after hoping to avoid the procedure through rehab. The North Carolina Tar Heel product returned in April 2015 and had a stellar season—going 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA while winning NL Comeback Player of the Year and helping the long-suffering Mets make it to the World Series.
