Matt Harvey threw a baseball for the second day in a row

Matt Harvey tossed a baseball for the second straight day Tuesday.

It marked the first time he’s done so since having Tommy John surgery last October.

Harvey, like Jeremy Hefner, will begin throwing four times a week, making 20 throws at 60 feet on flat ground through this weekend.

The Mets continue to say Harvey is likely to miss all of 2014.

Who cares? Send him home... I don't want to hear about him. Listen to Strasburgh and take it easy.

seriously, can we hold off on each Harvey "Threw today" update....he's not pitching in 2014.  This is going to be just as annoying as the "Stephen Drew" updates

He's arguebly the best thing to happen to the Mets in my lifetime. Please don't ruin him so that we can have him for 4 games in September. Rest Matt, rest.

@Zach Goeringer It all depends, if he's really ready a few games at the end of the season would be something nice to build on for 2015. I'd be more likely to pitch him if we are way out of it(which we are likely to be) than in a playoff race tbh, just for him to get the feel from a game and some success going into the offseason. By no means rush him, but everyone heals differently and his tendon wasn't replaced, but instead was reinforced so maybe he will be fully healed by September. All is speculation granted, but no reason to dismiss it or discuss it now...for which I feel silly.

@mets2891 We have all learned patience as Met fans, now is the best time to use that patience.

@mets2891 Honestly I don't see any benefit to letting him pitch this year. if we are out of the race its an unnecessary risk of an injury. And if we are in the race we are going to throw him into playoff intensity and have him gear it up to throw 97 in his first start back and even further risk him snapping his tendon. 2015 is way too important of a year for us to risk or franchise pitchers health for a matter of 4 or 5 starts.

@William Gallego @mets2891 @crafalko17 @Zach Goeringer Apples and oranges in regards to Wright.  This is a pitcher coming off of major arm surgery.  Luckily I don't think even the Mets are dumb enough to consider pitching him this year so it's a moot point.

@mets2891 @crafalko17 @Zach Goeringer  I can see both sides to the argument, but I tend to lean toward him pitching a game or two at the end of the season. Similar to what Wright was going thru last year when he returned at the end of the season - playing a couple of games after an injury can ease the mind going in to the off-season. While the extra time would help Harvey, I'm sure him pitching and doing so effectively would do more good going in to the off-season than bad. Obviously, if he has a setback, then it turns out to be a stupid decision by the 'Same ol' Mets.' I just think injuries are going to happen regardless, and if he's deemed ready, then let him pitch. The Nats did it with Strasburg, so it's not entirely a ridiculous notion to consider.

@crafalko17 @Zach Goeringer I disagree, it would be incredibly shortsighted to pitch Harvey at the end of this season.  This guy IS the franchise right now, you can't mess around.
