New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) will be allowed to rehab during the season in New York instead of in Florida. He'll move to Florida to face minor leaguers when he's ready to throw in games, according to a source. Harvey is currently throwing on flat ground at 75 feet and could be back on a mound sometime in June.

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) is adamant that he thinks he can return and pitch this August. Harvey had Tommy John surgery Oct. 22 of last year, so he could be throwing long toss by June. He's already been tossing a ball on flat ground at 60 feet, and he could move to 75 feet later in the week. Harvey is feeling great and wants to stay with the team during his rehab, although general manager Sandy Alderson prefers that Harvey remain in Florida to rehab.
Fantasy Tip: Harvey is a fierce competitor and is attacking his rehab from TJS with fire. That doesn't mean that he'll have his way when it comes to returning to pitch in the majors later this year. The Mets want Harvey to be their ace for the long haul, so rushing him back makes zero sense. Forget about Harvey being fantasy-relevant in 2014.

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said it's not the team's "goal" to have SP Matt Harvey (elbow) back pitching in the majors later this season after he underwent Tommy John surgery last October. However, Harvey is still holding out hopes of pitching in 2014. Alderson has discouraged Harvey from being a topic this spring training. "We're all interested in Matt's progress, obviously. But we don't intend it to be a storyline every time he decides to throw 40 pitches," Alderson said. "And I know he's anxious to get back and wants to get back ready to go in September, and that's fine."

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) is planning to throw a baseball Feb. 22 for the first time since having Tommy John surgery last October. "They said I should be able to start throwing four months after the surgery, and that's Feb. 22," Harvey said. "And I haven't had any setbacks. 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." He's expected to show up to the team's spring training facilities Feb. 15.
