Harvey Takes Another Step Forward In Return


Matt Harvey took another step forward in his rehab from Tommy John surgery on Friday, according to a report in the Daily News.

Harvey is now tossing on flat ground from 90 feet as he continues to work his way back. The next step in his rehab will be to throw from 120 feet, Harvey said. He is hoping that he can throw off a mound by June, at which point the injured ace will stay in St. Lucie full time to continue rehabbing at the Mets complex.

I’m very impressed with how Harvey is progressing and that he has had no setbacks. The Mets’ righthander still maintains that his goal is to pitch in the majors at some point this season. “I can’t wait to get back up there,” Harvey told reporters.

The final decision will remain with the Mets of course, but there’s nothing wrong with Harvey’s optimism and mindset. I love Harvey’s warrior mentality.
