Mets News: Matt Harvey should be able to throw Feb. 22
Matt Harvey, who appeared on The Mike Francesa Show on WFAN, said he has no pain, so setbacks and he could start throwing as soon as February 22..
“They said I should be able to start throwing four months after the surgery, and that’s Feb. 22,” Harvey recently told the NY Post. “And I haven’t had any setbacks. I can’t wait. Even if it’s 10 feet, I just want to pick up a ball. As of right now, I don’t see why I wouldn’t be able to do that.”
Harvey at first fought the idea of surgery, but eventually relented, going under the knife in late October.
“It was tough. I never thought it would happen. As a pitcher, you don’t want it to happen. I wasn’t having the same symptoms that you hear other guys have, no sharp soothing pains. My forearm was a little tight,” Harvey told Francesa. “It was a tough process to come to grips with, but after waking up enough times worrying if today is the day or tomorrow is the day to have surgery, I had just had enough.”
Matt Harvey is still expected to miss the entire 2014 baseball season.
