Matt Harvey wanted to pitch for the Mets this year and, last month, came thiiiis close to actually throwing from a mound and doing more advanced rehabby things, but the Mets put the kibosh on that. Most likely so it didn’t create a situation in which Harvey and/or the press started talking day and night about whether or not he could pitch in a real game in 2014.
Now that it’s far too late for that, the Mets have cleared him to begin throwing, reports Adam Rubin of ESPN.
Rubin adds that there’s a chance he could pitch in the fall instructional league in Florida in September and October.
