Mets Invite Matt Harvey and Matt den Dekker To Major League Camp


The Mets have invited RHP Matt Harvey and CF Matt den Dekker to Mets spring training camp in Port St. Lucie. Adam Rubin also added that Zack Wheeler, who was aquired in the Carlos Beltran trade, was not extended an invitation.

Harvey has been considered the more polished of the two and is said to be 1-2 years ahead of Wheeler in terms of development. Some experts have projected that Harvey could see some major league service time as soon as late 2012, that’s something which Sandy Alderson called “a good possibility”.
