|Matt Harvey to rehab elbow at Citi Field |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/24/14) The Mets and pitcher Matt Harvey have reached an agreement to allow the pitcher to rehab his injured elbow at Citi Field, MLB.com reports.
The team initially wanted Harvey to remain in Port St. Lucie to rehab, but he'll be in New York with the team until it's time to accelerate his rehab program later in the summer, at which point he'll return to Florida. Harvey is expected to miss all of 2014 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, though he's hopeful he'll return before the end of the season.

(3/18/14) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey still hopes to be back in the majors by August, as he continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery in late October.
"I still have in my mind that I want to come back this year," Harvey said, per ESPN. "And whether the doctors clear that, or the people upstairs have other ideas, my mindset as a competitor is to always get back on the field. I think after watching what happened to a couple of guys on the Braves, everybody is always going to be so cautious about the recovery. But as a competitor we’re always going to want to get back on the field. If the doctors at that point say it’s fine, obviously my mind is always going to be on the baseball field."
Harvey has been tossing a baseball on flat ground from 60 feet, but he said he's ready to progress to 75 feet.
"Everything feels great," Harvey said. "I’m getting sick of staying at 60. So a little change will be nice. But the process is going well and I’m excited for the next step."

(3/5/14) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will make $546,625 next season, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Harvey isn't expected to pitch most of the year due to recovery from Tommy John surgery. He's not eligible for arbitration until the 2016 season, so he should remain cheap until then.

(2/22/14) Coming off his first throwing session since undergoing Tommy John surgery, Mets wunderkind right-hander Matt Harvey now claims he could return to game action as early as August.
"If somehow I'm good to go in August, all power to me," he told the New York Post.
Speculation is that Harvey will return at some point only if the Mets remain a contender for a playoff spot.

|If you are thinking about drafting Matt Harvey for your Fantasy team, then take our advice and don't do it. No, this has nothing to do with Harvey's performance as a pitcher. Let's face it -- he's been nothing short of spectacular since debuting in 2012. Sadly, you aren't going to want to draft Harvey because he's currently slated to miss the 2014 season recovering from October Tommy John surgery. It's a real shame too since Harvey emerged as a Fantasy ace in 2013. After an impressive 10-start run as a rookie in 2012, Harvey got even better last season. He went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 26 starts for the Mets. He struck out 191 batters in 178 1/3 innings and walked just 1.6 batters per nine innings. Despite missing the last five scoring periods, Harvey still finished as the 15th-highest scoring Fantasy pitcher. He averaged 24.4 Fantasy points in the 21 scoring periods he was active. That's a lot of production Fantasy owners are going to miss in 2014. It usually takes 12-18 months of rehab for a pitcher to return from Tommy John surgery.
