Matt Harvey to have tests in three weeks

Many have wondered how long the Mets will stick with the “we’re rehabbing Matt Harvey” stance before ultimately deciding on surgery. I think the answer to that is “three weeks.”  Why? Because Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said today that Harvey will rest three weeks before undergoing more tests on his elbow.

As many have noted, the list of guys with partially-torn UCLs who have come back strong after rehabbing is not long. And, given that the Mets aren’t likely to compete in 2014, there is no reason to rush Harvey back into service as opposed to cutting now and hoping for a fully-armed and operational ace in 2015.

    I think they need to test the water in Citi Field.

    As I understand it, before any kind of complete diagnosis and treatment plan can be put together for something like this, you need to let the swelling in the arm go down anyway. That’s probably what the 3 weeks is about.

    IF he does indeed need TJS he’ll be lucky if he returns by the 2014 All Star Break. I wish him the best.

      If he needs TJS and comes back by the 2014 All Star Break he wouldn’t be lucky, he would be like the Adrian Peterson of MLB or even something bigger.. My point is.. no, he won’t be coming back by the All-Star or near that. Book him for 2015.

    why is Tommy John not in the HOF?Look at his numbers they are better than Blylevins yet he’s in.

    I hope he goes for it and comes back strong in 2015. He is an amazing talent, and a lot of fun to watch.

    And I don’t say that lightly of any Met. :-)
