Harvey (shoulder) tossed three scoreless innings for short-season Brooklyn on Wednesday and said his arm felt "great", Kevin Armstrong of The New York Daily News reports. "I think the next [step] is trying to ramp up and go a little bit further," he said. "We'll see where we go from there." The right-hander was hitting 94 mph with his fastball and struck out the side in his final inning of work, throwing 36 pitches (26 strikes) in total. Harvey's making good progress in his recovery from shoulder muscle weakness and a stress reaction in his shoulder blade, but as yet the Mets haven't announced where or when his next rehab start will take place. If everything goes smoothly from here, though, Harvey should be ready to rejoin the big-league rotation just in time for rosters to expand in September.
Harvey (shoulder) will make his second rehab start Wednesday with short-season Brooklyn, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Harvey pitched in a competitive game for the first time since June 14 over the past weekend, tossing an inning for Brooklyn to kick off what will likely be an extended rehab assignment. The right-hander wasn't especially sharp following the two-month layoff, but since he experienced no setbacks with his shoulder coming out of the outing, he's expected to increase his pitch count to 45 on Wednesday after throwing 18 his previous time on the mound. Harvey is likely trending toward a September return from the disabled list, but expectations should be tempered after he submitted a 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 70.1 innings with the Mets prior to being shut down.
Harvey (shoulder) gave up one run on one hit and one walk with zero strikeouts in one inning Saturday in his first rehab start with short-season Brooklyn. He threw 18 pitches, but only seven were strikes, so this can hardly be classified as a successful rehab outing. His rehab assignment is officially underway, but it would not be surprising if he needs at least a few weeks in the minors before he is ready to return to the majors.
Harvey (shoulder) will start a rehab assignment with short-season Brooklyn on Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Harvey was able to toss a live batting practice session Tuesday, registering 25-to-30 pitches prior to New York's game against the Rangers. The 28-year-old will likely need a few rehab games before rejoining the Mets, but appears in line to return around the fourth week of August. Through 13 games this season, Harvey has posted a 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over the course of 70.1 innings.
Harvey (shoulder) threw a 25-30 pitch live batting practice session Tuesday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports. This is typically the last step before a rehab assignment, so if Harvey made it through fine, he could head to a minor-league affiliate this weekend. There is still time for Harvey to return for a handful of starts before the end of the season, but it's anyone's guess as to how effective he will be when he returns against big-league hitters. He put up a 5.25 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 54:35 K:BB in 70.1 innings prior to landing on the DL in mid June.
