Mets ace Harvey throws off mound at Citi Field
The Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) Mets ace Matt Harvey has thrown off the main mound at Citi Field, the final step this season in his rehab program from Tommy John surgery last October.
Harvey, who won't pitch this year, will now rest his right elbow so it continues to heal, and then begin his regular offseason work. New York general manager Sandy Alderson says everything the team wanted Harvey to accomplish this season has been accomplished, and he is considered on track and ready to go for spring training next year.
Harvey didn't face hitters on Monday but simulated three innings and threw all his pitches besides his slider, because the team didn't want him to put that kind of torque on his elbow yet.
Alderson says Harvey hit 95 mph on the radar gun pretty consistently.
