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
(6/21/2014) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is hoping to throw off a mound in July, according to ESPN.com.

"I'd say sometime in July would be realistic for [throwing off a mound]," Harvey said. The team has been cautious to push him following Tommy John surgery, but it looks like he'll be able to take the next step soon. 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 continues to throw off flat ground, but he's waiting on the team to tell him he can begin working from the mound. Harvey was expected to start throwing off a Monday last week, but the powers that be put a stop to that. The club has been careful not to rush the young pitcher.

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.

Report: Matt Harvey unlikely to see the majors this year


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The club wants to be conservative with Harvey's rehab. He could get on the mound for minor-league action, but it doesn't appear he'll be pushed too hard. Harvey is attempting to come back from Tommy John surgery.


Report: Matt Harvey will not throw Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will not throw off the mound Tuesday, according to the New York Daily News.

Harvey is not dealing with a setback. The team just wants to be cautious with his recovery. A source told the Daily News, "he’s fine. It’s nothing physical, it’s just a plan to be more cautious."

Matt Harvey to throw off mound June 9


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"He's impatient like me," Wright told MLB Network Radio. "We're going to need Matt for the long-term; we have to be patient."

The loss of Harvey is a huge blow for the Mets. He was the talk of the town last season with a 9-5 record and brilliant 2.27 ERA with 191 strikeouts in 178 1/3 innings before going down.

Matt Harvey accepting of team's cautious approach


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

However, Harvey seems resigned to following the Mets' cautious approach with his recovery.

"Whenever they decide I can throw, that's their decision. I can only make sure I'm strong and flexible," Harvey said, per ESPN. "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.


Sandy Alderson looking to lessen talk about Matt Harvey


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is seeking to turn attention away from the recovery of pitcher Matt Harvey from Tommy John surgery during the course of the season. Speculation has run rampant as to whether the young standout will return in time to pitch by the end of the year.

"We're all interested in Matt's progress, obviously," he told ESPN. "But we don't intend it to be a storyline every time he decides to throw 40 pitches. And I know he's anxious to get back and wants to get back ready to go in September, and that's fine. But we have an identity of interest with him, and that is his long-term value to himself as a player and to us as a player. We're going to focus on his rehab with that in mind."

Harvey was the talk of the National League in 2013 with a 9-5 record, 2.27 ERA and 191 strikeouts and just 31 walks in 178 1/3 innings.


Matt Harvey eyeing first tosses in two weeks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/7/2014) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey continues to make progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, now has a target date for his first throwing sessions. Harvey told the New York Post Thursday he expects to begin throwing Feb. 22, as long as he remains on his established schedule.

"They said I should be able to start throwing four months after the surgery and that’s Feb. 22, and I haven't had any setbacks," Harvey said. "I can't wait. Even if it's 10 feet, I just want to pick up a ball. As if right now, I don't see why I wouldn't be able to do that."

Harvey will report with his teammates to spring training in Port St. Lucie Feb. 15, where he will continue his rehab. Harvey maintains hope that he will be able to pitch again this season, but is willing to make it a cameo towards the final months if he has to.

"If I get to throw a couple of innings in August or September and then have a normal offseason without having to go into next year with all those questions still out there, that would help me significantly," Harvey said. "I'd love to face hitters to build my confidence up back up and not just jump into a new season having not seen anyone."

Wilpon cited Jonathon Niese, Dillon Gee, Zack Wheeler and David Wright as the only players who currently have a spot next year. It's safe to assume Matt Harvey is also in that group, but his recent surgery means he'll likely miss most of the year.
