Mets Injury Update: Matt Harvey scheduled to throw off mound Friday

By on 7/31/2014 10:30:00 AM

The New York Mets hammered the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday by the score of 11-2. The win improved the Mets to 52-56 on the season, fourth in the National League East. They are staying close to .500 despite injuries to the staff and an offense that is a mediocre 18th in the league in runs scored. One key loss has been Matt Harvey, who is out for the season following Tommy John surgery last fall. But Harvey is improving and is set to throw off the mound on Friday.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on June 10 that Harvey, who had hoped to pitch this season following his October 2013 Tommy John surgery, would not pitch this season. The Mets had slowed down Harvey's rehab in light of the doctors warnings not to return anywhere inside of 11 months following surgery.

Marc Carig, who covers the Mets for Newsday, tweeted the following update on Harvey.
Harvey was excellent last season for the Mets, going 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA. In 178 1/3 innings, he allowed only 135 hits, walked 31 and struck out 191. In two Major League seasons, Harvey has a record of 12-10 with a 2.39 ERA and 261 strikeouts in 237 2/3 innings.
