Mets' Alderson: Innings limit for Matt Harvey will be 'soft number'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Mets continue to strategize ways to limit starting pitcher Matt Harvey's innings coming off Tommy John surgery in order to have him available late in the season. One way the Mets could make that happen is by placing Harvey on the disabled list during the season.

"If he's a little ouchy, then that's always a possibility," general manager Sandy Alderson said Sunday, per The Associated Press. "Fatigue can manifest itself in ways that warrant a disabled list. ... We'll just have to see how he does."

Alderson reiterated there will be an innings limit for Harvey, who missed the 2014 season, but it's not a strict number at this point.

"I think that we have to have something that we can vary from, but I think we'll have a soft number," Alderson said, "and we'll have to manage it from start to start."

Matt Harvey 'not likely' to throw 200 innings during regular season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, told reporters Wednesday it's "not likely" he will throw 200 innings during the 2015 regular season.

Harvey said he plans to resume throwing off a mound in about two weeks and hopes to face batters around the start of February. As of now, he said he is throwing at Citi Field from Monday through Saturday.

"The way the baseball is coming out, the way everything feels, it's completely normal. Maybe even better," he said, per MLB.com.

Mets' Alderson not worried about ace Harvey's celebrity status
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

During a breakout 2013 season, Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey's celebrity profile took off and he continued to stay in the limelight in 2014 despite missing the entire season recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson offered his thoughts about Harvey's celebrity status during an interview this week with MLB Network Radio, and indicated he feels Harvey will be able to balance his celebrity and professional lives.

"I think you have to recognize that there are pluses and minuses associated with that kind of celebrity," Alderson said, per NJ.com. "First of all, if the player can handle it's great for the player, it's great for the franchise. It brings a certain amount of attention that wouldn't otherwise exist. All of that can be positive. The key is for Matt or any player to handle it well.

"I remember years ago I cautioned a player 'You've become a celebrity but don't forget you're a baseball player first and that the celebrity is predicated on that.' I think Matt is very able to handle it. Based on what I've seen in the offseason, he's focused on getting back to where he was. And obviously when you have that kind of celebrity you put yourself on the line. To maintain that celebrity status he needs to perform back to previous levels. We're all hopeful that will happen."

Mets SP Matt Harvey eager for the start of spring training
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey, who missed the 2014 season recovering from Tommy John surgery, said "spring training can't come quick enough" during a radio interview Tuesday with WFAN.

"My whole goal is to be able to face hitters in February as soon as I get down to Florida," Harvey said, per NJ.com. "I haven't faced any hitters. I haven't done any batting practice."

Harvey, who was an All-Star in 2013, is 12-10 with a 2.39 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 36 career starts. He is also striking out 9.9 batters per nine innings.

Mets will not hold back Matt Harvey at start of season
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said starting pitcher Matt Harvey, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, will be in the rotation at the start of the season and not begin the season late to conserve innings, according to ESPN.

The Mets are trying to formulate a plan for Harvey as he makes his return to the mound in 2015. The Mets are expecting to be in contention next season and might skip some of Harvey's starts during the season, so he is available late in the year.
