To be successful again, Matt Harvey must shed his past, move on from the Dark Knight persona and adjust to being the best pitcher he's currently capable of being, Mets manager Mickey Callaway told SNY during an interview on Mets Hot Stove earlier this month.

"I think that's the key, to make sure you're not trying to get him back to anything," Callaway explained. "You want to get the most potential out of who he is today. ... We don't need the Dark Knight, we need Harvey to be Harvey on a daily basis and be comfortable with who he is."

Mets GM Sandy Alderson has repeatedly said he expects to tender Harvey a contract for 2018.

However, former Mets GM and current SiriusXM host Steve Phillips said the Mets should non-tender Harvey to free up money and a rotation spot to sign a more reliable starting pitcher.
