Mets want Matt Harvey to slow down recovery pace


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) The Mets announced Wednesday that pitcher Matt Harvey threw a 27-pitch bullpen session at the team's spring-training complex, but Mets manager Terry Collins plans to talk to the pitcher Wednesday evening to get him to slow down the pace of his recovery, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

"Matt gets it and understands it, but the issue with Matt is that everything he does is max effort," Collins said. "So even if you're going to slow down the pace of getting him in a game, he's got to back off on the effort side, too. He's talked about how great he feels, and how well he's throwing. He's got to back off a bit."

The Mets said Tuesday that they will consider slowing down the pitcher's recovery to the point where he won't pitch in a game setting before next spring. Harvey is working his way back from Tommy John surgery.

Harvey has been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery all season. He had hoped to return late in the year, but that may no longer be the case. General manager Sandy Alderson said he doesn't think Harvey will appear in the majors this season. Harvey posted a 2.27 ERA over 178 1/3 innings during his rookie season prior to undergoing surgery. 


Matt Harvey pleased with first bullpen session


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey (elbow) was pleased with how his 20-pitch bullpen session went Tuesday. Harvey said it felt like "nothing had happened" 10 months after Tommy John surgery.

"I didn't think things would feel this good and this easy, but I couldn't be happier," he said, per MLB.com. "Excited about moving forward. The mechanics, I feel like they didn't leave in the amount of time that I wasn't able to use them. I was happy that things were smooth and I'm glad I had no setbacks."

Harvey is now slated to throw three more 20-pitch bullpen sessions before he starts mixing in his secondary pitches and increasing his pitch count. He will then progress to batting practice and continue to throw into September. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Friday the team plans to shut Harvey down at the beginning of October.

Matt Harvey coming to realization he won't pitch in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey, who remains sidelined recovering from Tommy John surgery in October, appears resigned to the fact he won't pitch in 2014, according to the New York Post.

Harvey will head to his agent Scott Boras' training facility in Newport Beach, Calif., during the All-Star break for an unofficial checkup on his recovery. Boras said on Friday he believes the recovery timetable for Tommy John surgery is 14-16 months, and it appears Harvey is beginning to buy into the Mets' conservative approach to his recovery.

"That [time period] puts me to, what, December?” said Harvey, who added the process has been "very slowly slowing down a lot."


Matt Harvey hoping to throw off mound in July


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

While Harvey has pushed to return this season, it doesn't appear the team wants him back until 2015. 


Matt Harvey still waiting to throw off a mound


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2014) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is still waiting to throw off a mound, according to ESPN.

Harvey is recovering from Tommy John surgery. 


Matt Harvey coming to terms with decelerated timeline


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Though it was always a bit of a longshot, Mets pitcher Matt Harvey seemed to confirm that he will not be making his return from Tommy John surgery this season.

"I think it's always been there," Harvey told MLB.com Tuesday, when asked about the possibility of missing the entire season. "I think it was a matter of me not wanting it to happen. I still want to pitch this year. That's always going to be on my mind. But coming to realize that I can't write myself in the lineup is becoming a little bit more realistic."

Harvey met with the coaching and training staff Tuesday, and was told he will not be cleared to return to game action within the first 11 months following his surgery. Since he went under the knife in October of last season, that pretty much assures that his return will not come until 2015.

Matt Harvey: 'I don't work for Scott Boras, he works for me'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey was very blunt in his response when asked if his agent, Scott Boras, would allow him to return from Tommy John surgery before the end of the season.

"I don’t work for [Boras], he works for me," Harvey said, per the New York Post.

Though, Harvey does seem to be softening his stance about pitching this season after being so adamant in the past about making it back onto a major-league mound in 2014.

"As a competitor, if I’m healthy and can come back early, I would love to do that," Harvey said. "But I can’t put myself in the lineup and certainly can’t tell how I’m going to feel in three months once I get off the mound, so this is all way beforehand and speaking in competitiveness."

Still, Harvey told SI.com he wants to pitch in the majors again as soon as August, if possible. It would be just 10 months after he underwent elbow surgery.

"Of course, I won't do it unless I'm cleared to do it," he said, "but I want to pitch before the year ends. I want to make five, six, seven starts this year. I asked [the training staff], 'If I want to come back in August, when do I need to start throwing off a mound?' They said June 10. So that's what we have penciled in right now. That's the plan. I feel great. I don't feel any soreness now. The ball is coming out of my hand great."

Matt Harvey still hopeful to pitch in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) 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."

"It's definitely tough, but I've come to the realization that I have to listen to them and I can't push too much. There's going to be a time where I can do that, and that'll probably be later down the road. Right now, I've got to take things slow and do what they say and just make sure we have no setbacks."

Harvey added his checkup with team doctors during his physical showed "everything was fine" in his recovery. The team doctors will soon consult with Dr. James Andrews, who performed the surgery.
