NEW YORK (AP) -- Injured Mets ace Matt Harvey has been examined by Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his injured right elbow.

The 24-year-old right-hander was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament when he saw Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek on Aug. 26. Harvey hopes to avoid reconstructive surgery, which would sideline him for 2014.

Harvey traveled to Pensacola, Fla., to see Andrews on Monday. The Mets say they expect to have additional information Tuesday.

The NL starter in this year's All-Star game at Citi Field, Harvey is 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA and 191 strikeouts in 178 1-3 innings.
