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.
Told Matt Harvey is tentatively scheduled to throw off a mound on Friday.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.
