Mets SP Matt Harvey eager for the start of spring training


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey, who missed the 2014 season recovering from Tommy John surgery, said "spring training can't come quick enough" during a radio interview Tuesday with WFAN.

"My whole goal is to be able to face hitters in February as soon as I get down to Florida," Harvey said, per NJ.com. "I haven't faced any hitters. I haven't done any batting practice."

Harvey, who was an All-Star in 2013, is 12-10 with a 2.39 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 36 career starts. He is also striking out 9.9 batters per nine innings.


Mets will not hold back Matt Harvey at start of season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said starting pitcher Matt Harvey, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, will be in the rotation at the start of the season and not begin the season late to conserve innings, according to ESPN.

The Mets are trying to formulate a plan for Harvey as he makes his return to the mound in 2015. The Mets are expecting to be in contention next season and might skip some of Harvey's starts during the season, so he is available late in the year.


Mets' Collins indicates Matt Harvey might skip starts in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/13/2014) Manager Terry Collins said Thursday the Mets might have starting pitcher Matt Harvey skip some starts in 2015, as the right-handed hurler returns from Tommy John surgery after missing the entire 2014 season.

"We have no set number [of innings] to put on Matt, but certainly we might skip him here and there once in a while, just to save him," Collins said, per Newsday. "That will all be explained to him and there'll be arguments and he'll throw a tantrum in the office but it's all part of the job because he wants to pitch and he wants to win.

"He's dying to get on the mound. He'll be down in Florida in January ... You know him. The first bullpen, there's going to be 30 [reporters] standing around, TV cameras -- 'Matt, you don't need to throw 100 here. It's about getting in shape.' We'll have to rein him in on a daily basis. I know he's really excited because he feels great."


Mets negotiating Matt Harvey's workload


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) The Mets are in the process of negotiating Matt Harvey's workload for 2015, according to ESPN.

General manager Sandy Alderson said the team will work with Harvey and his agent, Scott Boras, in order to make sure all sides are on the same page. The Mets believe Harvey will need some restrictions on his inning coming off Tommy John. "His capacity over the season might be more limited than it would have been otherwise," Alderson said. "That’s something we have to decide." There's a sense that Harvey, who had been adamant about returning as soon as possible, will want to pitch as much as he can next season. 


Mets activate Matt Harvey, Bobby Parnell from 60-day DL


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Mets have activated Matt Harvey and Bobby Parnell from the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Matt Harvey hits 95 in last mound session


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey threw a simulated game from the mound at Citi Field Monday -- the last throwing he'll do apart from his regular routine to get ready for 2015.

General manager Sandy Alderson told ESPN.com the right-hander was hitting 95 mph "pretty consistently" even while throwing at less than 100 percent. Harvey, who has spent all of this season recovering from Tommy John surgery, should be ready to go for the start of next season.

"Everything we were trying to accomplish this season has been accomplished," Alderson said. "From our standpoint, we want to make sure he was physically back to a level that would ensure he wasn't behind in spring training. And then, secondly, he needed to be back to a state mentally where he felt comfortable going into next season and the uncertainty has been eliminated. We feel we're at that point."

Alderson said the Mets plan to limit Harvey's workload in 2015, though they'll want to do some research this offseason before coming up with an exact plan.


Matt Harvey to be shut down after four 'pen sessions


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will toss four bullpen sessions before being shut down for the season in the coming weeks, the New York Daily News reports Thursday.

Harvey, who was not expected to pitch in games this season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, will get his first bullpen session Thursday at the team's spring training complex. He is expected to throw only fastballs through his first three sessions, and the team plans to monitor his velocity to ensure he is not yet throwing at max effort. He will then throw one session with all of his pitches before being shut down for the offseason.

"That is the point we want him to get to and then he will stop," a team source told the Daily News. "However long it takes for him to get there, but he will be done by the end of this month."

Harvey will not face batters or be cleared to throw at full effort until spring training in February, but is expected to progress through a normal spring throwing program with the rest of the pitchers.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Matt Harvey pleased with first bullpen session


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"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

Matt Harvey still waiting to throw off a mound


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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."
