Matt Harvey threw to Travis d’Arnaud on Monday

Matt Harvey again did light throwing with Travis d’Arnaud at Tradition Field in St. Lucie late Monday morning.

He began tossing a baseball last week for the first time since having Tommy John surgery last summer.


11:50 am: Harvey will again throw tomorrow, marking his first time going on back-to-back days this spring (Ackert, Mar. 3).

I know, I know… This season isn’t supposed to be about Harvey, but it’s still fascinating to get a peek behind the rehab curtain.

It’s rare you get to see a player working on his arm strength, long-tossing and putting a little power behind a few throws, but that’s what he was doing. Harvey popped d’Arnaud’s glove a few times, which was a sight for sore eyes and a sound to hope for.

Sight for sore eyes? Why would you want him popping a glove less than six months after Tommy John. Harvey needs to back off and take it easy. The Mets  trainers are suspect at best so someone needs to tell him to back off.

I hope that he doesn't rush it. I don't think the Mets will in fact I think they will slow him down which isn't the best thing either. Let him do what the doctors and trainers want him to do and nothing more. If he is ready later this year than maybe some innings out of the pen in September just to get a few innings under his belt before next year,,,,,thats fine but only if he is fully cleared to go.

His heart, drive, and determination are part of what has made him who he is and are part of what we all love about him. They are also a big part of why we all get nervous watching him throw this early in his rehab program.

IT is a shame this team has not given there fans better everyday ball players so the whole season and preseason is not spent on matt who we all wish well,but he is at the start of a long rehab process that should not be front page news at this time because we want him to take his time and not rush back we will see him in 2015. Get us some players that we can be excited about this spring and season. spend some money!!!!!!

I really hope the Mets are careful with this guy, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I have zero faith in whoever is overlooking this rehab.

Harvey popping d'Arnaud's glove is a concern.  He needs to take it slow and steady so he can get back by ST next year.  There's no reason to rush and risk another injury.

Easy does it big fella. Don't rush it.


Interesting how when football players rehab, (from what I've heard) they stay away from the team, but with baseball, it's different.

Getting good news on Harvey is always great.

@nolrog  There were many, many coaches around him. They talked it over before letting him take it up a notch for a few pitches. Was far from his fastball, but still popped.
