Pitcher Matt Harvey has undergone successful Tommy John surgery, the Mets announced on Tuesday.

Harvey was a bright spot for the Mets this season, in which he was the starting pitcher for the NL All-Star team and had 2.27 ERA with 191 Ks before being shut down for the season with a partial muscle tear in his right elbow in late August. Harvey initially hoped to rehab the injury without surgery, but later decided to go under the knife.

The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews, who was also schedule to operate on Houston Texans' LB Brian Cushing on Tuesday for a torn LCL.

Harvey is expected to return to the mound in the 2015 season.
