Callaway says he wanted Harvey to try to rebuild himself in the minors, as Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee famously did in the past.

Last season, Harvey was suspended for three games after he did not show up for a game at Citi Field. Thoracic outlet syndrome affected Harvey's feel for pitching and location, he said, but added that Harvey is healthy and has enough velocity.

"We met with him about 3:15 (p.m. ET) today and we told him to take time to talk to his agent but it wasn't open-ended", Alderson detailed to reporters. He missed two months of 2017 with a right shoulder injury and finished the year 5-7.
