Matt Harvey has made it clear that he would like to return to the mound for the New York Mets late this season. The Mets however are not counting on the 25-year-old right hander returning.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is cautioning those who are hoping for a Harey return telling the Newark Star Ledger:
“Not being a medical doctor and having not really been faced with that decision previously, I’ll reserve judgment,” he said. “But the one thing we don’t want to do is be put in a situation someone — Matt or anyone else — has a setback because we’ve pushed a natural recovery processes further than we should have.”
Harvey’s basis for a return is to have a physiological advantage going forward.
In 36 career games Harvey holds a 2.39 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP.
