The Mets have good news on the pitching front.
Daisuke Matsuzaka is scheduled for a rehab start, likely in the Florida State League, next week. Matsuzaka has been on the DL since July 25th with inflammation in his right elbow. He threw 51 pitches off a mound in a bullpen session on Wednesday and is due for another session on Saturday. Matsuzaka will be in the bullpen when he returns.
Matt Harvey continues his long rehab back from Tommy John surgery and will throw off a mound on Saturday. He threw for the first time in nearly a year last Friday at Citi Field off the mound. He also threw Tuesday and is throwing every fourth day.
