Matt Harvey impressed over six innings Sunday, allowing two runs versus the Braves.
Reports had Harvey in the mid-90s, topping out at 97 mph, in this one, though his velocity did fade later in the outing. It's still a good sign, as the Mets were hoping to see some 96s and 97s from him leading into the regular season. Mar 26 - 4:41 PM

Matt Harvey gave up three runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday against the Tigers, dropping him to 0-4 this spring.

Harvey's velocity was improved today, as he touched the mid-90s on occasion. The results weren't there, but health and arm strength are all that really matter right now. He says the former isn't an issue, and the latter seems to be coming along.
Mar 20 - 5:09 PM

Matt Harvey gave up four runs -- two earned -- in 3 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Marlins.

Harvey's velocity was about the same as last time out and still down a couple of mph from where he used to be. That'd still seem to leave him with plenty of stuff to get major league hitters out, but he's used to overpowering them and he might have to adjust if he doesn't resume hitting 95 mph consistently.
Mar 15 - 4:51 PM

In his second spring start, Matt Harvey pitched three innings of one-run ball Friday against the Astros.

Harvey's velocity has been down a couple of ticks from his usual 93-97 mph, but it's still early. The important thing is that he hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery, and if he's not quite the Harvey of old in April, it still won't be time to panic.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen said Matt Harvey (neck) had a "great" bullpen session on Wednesday.

Harvey pitched through some neck stiffness in his spring debut on Sunday while allowing four runs over 1 2/3 innings, but he didn't have any issues on Wednesday. He'll look to improve in Friday's outing.
Mar 8 - 11:17 AM

Making his spring debut, Matt Harvey yielded four runs in 1 2/3 innings Sunday against the Cardinals.

It was a high scoring day in Port St. Lucie, with the teams combining for five homers and 25 runs. Harvey gave up a three-run homer in the first and four hits overall, but he struck out three and didn't walk anyone. He complained of some neck stiffness afterwards, saying that it bothered him before he took the mound, but he didn't seem to think it was anything to worry about.
Mar 5 - 5:22 PM

Matt Harvey (shoulder) said he's completely healthy heading into spring training.

"I come down here with a lot of confidence," the right-hander told reporters Monday after arriving in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Harvey needed surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome last July, finishing the 2016 season with a rough 4.86 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 92 2/3 innings. He's a high-risk, high-reward fantasy starter for 2017.
Feb 13 - 11:16 AM

Mets and RHP Matt Harvey avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.125 million contract.

James Wagner of the New York Times says Harvey can make an additional $100,000 in incentives. The righty had a rough 2016 and then had thoracic outlet surgery in July, so he's a wild card heading into 2017.

Matt Harvey (thoracic outlet syndrome) no longer feels tingling in his fingers when he throws.

Harvey missed the back half of the 2016 campaign after undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome in July.

Matt Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, said that the pitcher will be fully recovered from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery by the start of spring training.

Boras made similar comments in mid-October, so it looks like no news is good news in this case. Harvey underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome in July.

Scott Boras said Tuesday that he expects his client, Matt Harvey (thoracic outlet syndrome), to be back to 100 percent for the start of spring training.

Harvey underwent surgery in mid-July for thoracic outlet syndrome. The procedure involved removing a rib in order to free compressed nerves traveling from his shoulder to his armpit. He pitched without complete feeling in his arm and fingers for most of the season, but he immediately felt "big relief" after the procedure. Harvey recently resumed playing catch and will report to Boras' training center in Newport Beach, California next month to work on conditioning and continue his rehab process. Barring any setbacks, he should be on track for the start of 2017. Harvey, 27, went 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA and 76/25 K/BB ratio over 92 2/3 innings this season.

Matt Harvey underwent surgery Monday in St. Louis for thoracic outlet syndrome.

Harvey is officially done for the season. It was obvious something wasn't right with him even before the news of his thoracic outlet syndrome, as he had a disappointing 4.86 ERA over 17 starts. The hope is that he'll be ready for the start of 2017.
Mon, Jul 18, 2016 04:21:00 PM

Matt Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, told ESPN on Friday that his client will have season-ending surgery to address thoracic outlet syndrome.

The operation will be performed in St. Louis by specialist Dr. Robert Thompson. Jon Heyman of Fanrag Sports hears that Harvey has been dealing with numbness in his fingertips since spring training, which would help explain his disappointing season.=. A timetable for his return isn't known at this point, but this is a surgery that has sidetracked numerous careers in the past. It's obviously brutal news for Harvey and the Mets.
