Matt Harvey throws off mound for first time since Tommy John surgery

Aug 1, 2014, 6:29 PM EDT

Mets right-hander Matt Harvey threw off a mound today for this first time since he underwent Tommy John reconstructive surgery on his elbow last October. It wasn’t much. He only made 15 tosses, mostly at low intensity, but he told Mike Vorkunov of the Newark Star-Ledger that everything felt good.

Harvey has repeatedly said that he would like to get a chance to pitch in the majors this season, but the Mets aren’t going to rush him back. The plan calls for him to ramp up his throwing program next Tuesday in preparation for the instructional league in Florida. According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said today that there’s a chance he could also make one start in the Arizona Fall League. If all goes well during his rehab process, he should have a normal spring training and start the 2015 season on time.

    If Harvey is fully healthy next year…Harvey, Wheeler, deGrom, and Syndergaard. Absolutely filthy, young and inexpensive. Hopefully pushing each other to be their best.

    Acquire two legit bats in the offseason, and you’re in the playoffs next year.
