No deal: Matt Harvey still a Cincinnati Red after trade deadline


Major League Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline came and went at 4 p.m. with Matt Harvey still a member of the Cincinnati Reds. 

The right-handed pitcher was widely seen as the team’s most-tradeable chip as July wound down, but the team apparently was not able to find a deal to its liking. 

He could still be traded in August but would have to clear waivers. 

The team was not idle before to deadline, however, as it sent former All-Star outfielder Adam Duvall to the Atlanta Braves for three players

Harvey was acquired in early May after the former ace fell out of favor in New York. 

He has posted a 5-4 record with a 4.44 ERA for the Reds. Though far from the dominant form he showed early in his career with the Mets, he was viewed as a potential upgrade for the rotation of a team eyeing the postseason. 

Harvey was widely assumed to be headed out of town because he will be a free agent after the season, unlike the rest of the Reds’ potential trade chips. 

Various national baseball reporters mentioned the Braves, Brewers, Cubs and Giants as possible destinations for Harvey. 

Two notable trades for starters were pulled off with Kevin Gausman going from the Orioles to the Braves and Chris Archer going from the Rays to the Pirates.
