Mets Injury Updates: Harvey Ahead Of Schedule, Tejada Has Started Rehabbing Leg


On Thursday night, Terry Collins offered up an injury update on shortstop Ruben Tejada, saying that he’s already working out and rehabbing his leg.

“Right now, I’ve got to get Ruben Tejada going. He’s at a fitness place right now, trying to get himself in good shape.”

Tejada broke his right leg on September 19 in a collision with left fielder Andrew Brown. He was expected be sidelined six to eight weeks before he can begin rehabilitation, so this news suggests he is right on schedule.

Scott Boras said that Matt Harvey will begin rehabbing his surgically-repaired elbow in a few weeks. The prized Mets righthander will be undergoing a supervised rehab regimen at Boras’ Southern California training facility.

Last week, Harvey announced that he was ahead of schedule and doing range of motion exercises. While visiting the the Hospital for Special Surgery, they removed the bandages and cleared him to begin rehab.

Harvey underwent Tommy John surgery in October and is expected to miss the entire 2014 season. However, there’s a slight chance that he could return in September and you can bet Harvey’s motivated to make that happen.
