CLEVELAND -- Matt Harvey, who has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, will receive a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, likely within the coming week.

The organization has not yet decided whether Harvey will undergo Tommy John surgery, a procedure that Andrews has performed on countless pitchers. Appearing on MLB Network Radio, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated he's hoping the Mets will have a clear direction with Harvey by the third or fourth week of September.

"Until we get that opinion and some confirmation of the exact extent of the injury, I don't think we'll have any update," Alderson said on the radio.

Harvey, 24, last pitched for the Mets on Aug. 24. In 26 outings, he was 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA.
