As Cincinnati Reds pitcher Matt Harvey heads into free agency this offseason Clayton Kershaw Jersey , he is keeping his options open.Well, most of his options.\"There\'s only one team out there I would not sign with,\" Harvey said Tuesday, per MLB.com\'s Mark Sheldon. \"That\'s about it.\"Harvey, of course, is alluding to the New York Mets.After New York took him with the seventh overall pick in 2010, he quickly became viewed as a future ace. The Dark Knight debuted in 2012, posting a sub-3.00 ERA in each of his first two-plus seasons. In his first full season in 2013, he made the All-Star team and finished fourth in National League Cy Young voting.Harvey also helped the Mets reach the 2015 World Series. That run will always be remembered for the right-hander lobbying his way into staying in Game 5 after throwing eight dominant innings:That decision backfired, as he couldn\'t close things out in the ninth. The Kansas City Royals went on to win in extra innings to capture their first World Series title since 1985.Neither Harvey nor the Mets have been the same since.Injuries took their toll on Harvey through the years (and the Mets in general), and he has not posted an ERA below 4.86 since 2015. He wasdesignated for assignmentin May before being traded to Cincinnati.He showed glimpses of his old form with the Reds, although the overall numbers may not show it: 7-7, 4.50 ERA in 24 starts http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-turner-jersey , 111 strikeouts in 128 innings.As his name came up in trade rumors during the summer, Harveylet it be knownhe wanted to remain in Cincinnati. He said the same recently.\"[The Reds] brought me here, and they gave me the ball every fifth day,\" he said. \"So it was something I\'m very happy about and taking into consideration, and we\'ll see what happens moving forward.\"Before Harvey was dealt to Cincinnati, there were questions about his clubhouse presence and off-field behavior. Neither proved to be an issue with the Reds, leaving the pitching-needy organization possibly interested in a reunion.\"We definitely will stack Matt up against the available options,\" President of Baseball Operations Dick Williams said Tuesday. \"The fact that he\'s been here and we\'ve seen how he interacts with our coaches and our players will certainly work in his favor.\"Everybody\'s been favorably impressed. And we know that pitching is a priority going forward. All our pro scouting staff is in town, and we are currently discussing every free-agent player, starting with pitching. We\'ll also be talking about trade targets. There\'s a lot of possibilities.\"Harvey, 29, was once expected to earn a major payday when he hit free agency. That won\'t happen now. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics missed out this weekend on gaining ground to host the AL wild-card game.Khris Davis hit a grand slam in the ninth inning but the Athletics again came up short Sandy Koufax Jersey , beaten by the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 on Sunday.“It was good to see on a day that looks like we’re dragging a little bit or a little bit flat to be able to put up a four-spot like that,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said.The A’s remained 1 ½ games behind the New York Yankees for the top AL wild-card spot. Oakland lost for the second straight day at Tropicana Field — the Yankees fell to Toronto both days.Oakland dropped 4 ½ games behind AL West-leading Houston, which beat Arizona.Tampa Bay trails Oakland by seven games with 14 games left.C.J. Cron and Willy Adames homered off A’s starter Mike Fiers. Eight Tampa Bay pitchers combined on a four-hitter.“Oakland came in here as hot as any team and we pitched like we needed to,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.Down 5-0, the A’s loaded the bases with no outs in the ninth on three walks by Jake Faria. After Jose Alvarado struck out Jed Lowrie, Sergio Romo allowed Davis’ major league-leading and career-high tying 43rd homer before getting the final two outs for his 21st save.Davis’ second career slam gave him 115 RBIs, second in the majors to the 122 for Boston’s J.D. Martinez.Fiers (12-7) dropped to 5-1 over eight starts since being acquired from Detroit on Aug. 6. He gave up three runs and four hits in four innings. The righty worked out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the second.“Put the guys behind early,” Fiers said. “Just too many jams, too many errant pitches.”Cron had a two-run drive in the first and Adames hit a fourth-inning solo shot. The Rays (82-66) secured their first winning season since reaching the playoffs in 2013 (92-71) as an AL wild-card team.“There’s no way around it, we’ve had a good year,” Cron said. “It’s just that the guys in front of us are having an exceptionally good year. I think most years this (record) would be good enough for a playoff spot.”Diego Castillo worked the first inning for the Rays, then Andrew Kittredge (3-2) http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-yasiel-puig-jersey , Hunter Wood and Jaime Schultz all went two innings apiece.Kittredge also got the win in the Rays’ 7-5 victory Saturday night by retiring his only batter, Mark Canha, on two-out, bases-loaded grounder in the eighth.Matt Olson, who went 2 for 3 with a walk, was the only Oakland player to reach base through seven innings.Cron put Tampa Bay ahead 2-0 on his career-high 27th home, coming two pitches after Lowrie could only get a forceout after bobbling an apparent inning-ending double-play grounder to second by Ji-Man Choi.The Rays went up 5-0 in the seventh on Brandon Lowe’s two-run triple.TWENTY IS STILL SPECIALRays ace Blake Snell (19-5) will be seeking a major league-leading 20th win in the second of a three-game series Tuesday night at Texas. “I think it’s a huge stat for a pitcher,” Cash said. “Sometimes you’re at the mercy of the club, I understand that, but ultimately if you win 20 ballgames you’re going to put the club on your back and carry a lot of the load. Blake has done that.”TRAINER’S ROOMAthletics: RHP Trevor Cahill (upper back) is nearing a bullpen session and might rejoin the rotation next weekend. “We’ll have a better indication once gets off the mound and really has to extend,” Melvin said. “I think that’s where he was having his troubles.” Cahill is 6-3 in 19 starts.Rays: OF Tommy Pham, playing through groin and right ring finger injuries was rested. … Cash said it is unclear if C Michael Perez (left hamstring) will return this season.UP NEXTAthletics: RHP Liam Hendriks (0-1) will be the opener for the sixth time this month Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Angels.Rays: RHP Tyler Glasnow (0-4) will face Texas RHP Adrian Sampson (0-1) on Monday night.
