Matt Harvey (shoulder) spun three shutout innings Wednesday in a rehab start for Low-A Brooklyn.
He finished with three strikeouts and only allowed one hit over 36 pitches. Harvey fared much better Wednesday than he did in his previous rehab outing on Saturday (1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB). He'll still need a couple starts to get his pitch count back up but it won't be long before Harvey is back in the Mets' starting rotation. Aug 16 - 11:14 PM

Matt Harvey (shoulder) will make his next rehab start Wednesday with Low-A Brooklyn.

Harvey allowed one run on one hit and one walk in one inning of work Saturday in his first rehab outing. He threw 18 pitches, so the Mets are being extra careful with him as he makes his way back from a stress reaction in his shoulder. He's likely still a few outings away from rejoining the Mets' rotation.

Matt Harvey (shoulder) allowed one hit, one run and one walk in his lone inning of work Saturday in a rehab start for Low-A Brooklyn.

Not a great outing for Harvey, who threw just seven of his 18 pitches for strikes while topping out at 93 mph. Surely he'll need a few more appearances before he's ready to join the Mets' rotation. Given his lengthy injury history and where New York is in the standings, Harvey won't be rushed as he works back from a stress reaction in his right shoulder.

Matt Harvey (shoulder) will make a rehab start for Low-A Brooklyn on Saturday.

Harvey got the green light after pitching a live batting practice on Tuesday. It's going to take a handful of rehab starts for Harvey to get his pitch count back up, though a return in late August seems realistic. A stress reaction has sidelined the right-hander since mid-June.
Aug 10 - 5:50 PM

Matt Harvey (shoulder) said he expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment in the next week or two.

Harvey made it through a live batting practice session Tuesday without issue and said after the workout that he is "on track to get back hopefully pretty soon." The right-hander has been on the disabled list since June 16 because of a stress reaction in his throwing shoulder. He holds a disappointing 5.25 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, and 54/35 K/BB ratio in 70 1/3 innings this season.
Aug 8 - 4:36 PM

Matt Harvey (shoulder) is scheduled to throw live batting practice on Tuesday.

Harvey threw a bullpen session on Sunday, just the latest step in his rehab from a stress reaction in his right shoulder. It's not clear when he'll be ready for game action, but the Mets are hopeful he'll be able to pitch in September and go into the offseason with some peace of mind.
Aug 7 - 1:16 PM

Matt Harvey (shoulder) threw off the slope of a mound this week.

It was the next step in his throwing progression. Harvey should be ready to throw from the rubber soon and eventually progress to facing hitters and then go out on a rehab assignment. Obviously, he's still got a ways to go.
Aug 4 - 4:01 PM

Matt Harvey (shoulder) has resumed a throwing program.

Harvey has been working on rebuilding strength in his right shoulder after it was discovered that the muscles behind the shoulder had atrophied following last year's thoracic outlet surgery. Monday's flat-ground throwing session was the first step in what will be a multi-week rehab process. He would be back until sometime in August.
Jul 17 - 4:17 PM

Matt Harvey (shoulder) will resume a throwing program at the start of the second half.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen on Sunday revealed that the muscles behind Harvey's shoulder following his thoracic outlet surgery had "totally atrophied" and were roughly half the size of those on his left shoulder. Warthen says that doctors didn't discover this until the righty was placed on the disabled list last month. It would certainly offer at least part of an explanation for Harvey's struggles, although it hardly means he's in the clear now. Harvey isn't expected back before August.

Mets placed RHP Matt Harvey on the 10-day disabled list with a stress reaction in his right shoulder.

Harvey was diagnosed with the injury Thursday after a visit with a specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. In a subsequent press release, the Mets stated that he will be out for "several weeks." Harvey, 28, has registered a disappointing 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 13 starts (70 1/3 innings) this season.

Matt Harvey will be out for "several weeks" with a right shoulder injury, per a team press release.

Harvey has a stress injury to the scapula bone in his right shoulder, similar to what Michael Wacha and Brandon McCarthy have dealt with. He was given a platelet-rich plasma injection on Thursday and will be shut down for the next couple of weeks before trying to throw again. We can probably rule him out until August, at least. Harvey will officially be placed on the disabled list sometime Friday.
Jun 15 - 3:58 PM

Matt Harvey will see a doctor for what he described as fatigue and tiredness in his arm.

"My arm was not working at all," Harvey said of his start against the Cubs on Wednesday. He surrendered three home runs over four innings in that one before exiting having thrown just 58 pitches. Given the right-hander's injury history -- a Tommy John surgery and surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome -- these dead-arm complaints raise their share of red flags. Harvey has struggled to a 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 13 starts this season.
Jun 14 - 10:57 PM

Matt Harvey gave up four runs in four innings while allowing a trio of dingers but escaped with a no-decision as his club beat the Cubs on Wednesday.

He surrendered only four base hits but was taken deep by Anthony Rizzo and Ian Happ in the first inning, and Kyle Schwarber in the fourth. Harvey fanned five batters and issued one free pass and lasted for only 58 pitches before being relieved. He has a 4-3 record with a 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 13 starts.
Jun 14 - 10:50 PM

Matt Harvey pitched five scoreless innings Friday in a no-decision against the Braves.

Harvey needed 104 pitches to get his 15 outs, so it wasn't a quick hook to boost his confidence; he went as far as anyone would have expected him to. It doesn't look like classic Harvey is coming back, but he's been effective in three of his last four starts. He's still not going to be a good play in mixed leagues against the Cubs and Dodgers his next two times out.
Jun 10 - 1:20 AM

Matt Harvey struggled again Friday against the Pirates, giving up six runs in five-plus innings of work.

It looked like perhaps Harvey had turned a corner in his last outing, but he was in trouble from the start in this one. After loading the bases in the first inning, he was fortunate to escape with only one run scoring. He wasn’t so fortunate in the fourth inning, as Elias Diaz delivered a bases-clearing double. Harvey ended up giving up five hits (including a solo homer to Josh Bell) and four walks while striking out five. He’s sitting on a 5.43 ERA through 11 starts and is simply tough to trust in fantasy leagues at this stage.
