Mets News: Matt Harvey Throws 20 Tosses
Mets Ace Matt Harvey proceeded to make 20 tosses on flat ground from that distance, the prescribed amount for his first session since undergoing Tommy John surgery on Oct. 22.
Harvey suggested he had excitement, not anxiety with his first toss.
“I didn’t know if I was going to sail it into the fans or whatnot, but it was right where I wanted it,” Harvey said Saturday afternoon. “That made everything a lot easier.”
Harvey expects to repeat the early throwing regimen alongside fellow Tommy John rehabber Jeremy Hefner three times a week for now, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
“It was awesome,” Harvey said about the first session. “I know it was 20 throws at 60 feet, but everything felt absolutely amazing. I’ve got a lot of work to do. It’s going to be a tough process [even] with how things felt today. But I’ve got to stick with it and move forward.”
