The "Dark Knight" is back. Former New York Mets All-Star and faux-superhero Matt Harvey has resurfaced yet again, this time with the Baltimore Orioles.

Harvey's fall from grace has been one of the harshest in recent memory. A legitimate ace for the Mets from 2012-15, the starting pitcher was on top of the world in America's brightest limelight, until injuries tore him down.

After a few poor seasons with New York, Harvey eventually made his way to Cincinnati, and then Los Angeles (Angels) and Kansas City. Unfortunately, the changes in scenery have yet to spark a revival. Next up is Baltimore.

After an 11.57 ERA in four 2020 starts (seven appearances) and an atrocious 2.743 WHIP, some wondered if the pitcher would get another opportunity this season. His move to the Orioles 40-man roster signals at least one final chance. Thus far, he has a 5.40 ERA in three Spring Training starts.
