4/9/2015 4:36:00 PM
Description: Mets right-hander Matt Harvey gave fantasy owners what they were hoping for in his season debut.
Insight: After missing the 2014 campaign, Harvey began 2015 in style. He went six strong innings of four-hit, no-run ball. Harvey struck out nine and walked just one, while throwing 91 pitches. The Mets will undoubtedly monitor his workload, but there have been no reports of shutting him down early.

Description: Mets right-hander Matt Harvey will next pitch on Wednesday when he's expected to throw 50 pitches, according to Kristie Ackert of the NYDN.
Insight: He had a very successful first outing and this is the next step. He will likely start the third game of 2015, and to this point he looks like the guy we remember. However, we would expect the team to keep their most valuable asset under 200 innings this season as a precaution.
 
3/7/2015 8:04:00 PM
Description: Mets right-hander Matt Harvey hit 99 mph on the radar gun on Friday.

Description: Mets right-hander Matt Harvey breezed through two innings of work Friday afternoon against the Tigers.
Insight: Harvey, who is coming off October Tommy John surgery, struck out three batters without giving up a hit or a walk. Nice start and fantasy owners should be excited about the possibility of having Harvey ready for the Opening week of the season.

Description: Mets injured right-hander Matt Harvey threw for the third time in the past two weeks, reports Bill Price of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Harvey, who is coming off October Tommy John surgery, is hoping to re-join the rotation this season, but there is no reason to rush him back that quickly. The latest news, that he's throwing off the mound, is just the next step in the rehab process. He should be ready for spring training.

Insight: Harvey, who is coming off October Tommy John surgery, was hoping to re-join the rotation sometime in August or September. With the team firmly in last place and unlikely to make the playoffs, the Mets can afford to be cautious with their young ace. He should be a full-go for the start of 2015.

Insight: Harvey (9-5, 2.27 ERA) had Tommy John surgery last October. Usually the surgery takes at least a year to recover from. We won't know how close Harvey really is until around the All-Star break. If you're in a keeper league, make sure you hold onto him.

Insight: The famous Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery. Because of the lengthy recovery process, Harvey (9-5, 2.27 ERA) won't be a fantasy consideration outside of keeper leagues next season.

Description: Mets starter Matt Harvey will undergo Tommy John surgery after all, according to Brad Como of SNY.
Insight: Harvey was expected to try rest and rehab for his partially torn UCL, but he'll just bite the bullet and undergo the surgery now. He should be ready well before the start of the 2015 season.

Description: Mets starter Matt Harvey will be on a 6-8 week throwing program to see how his elbow responds, according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNY.com.
Insight: Harvey has a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament but will try rehab first instead of immediate surgery. He has the odds stacked against him that he can avoid Tommy John surgery.
 
9/17/2013 5:21:00 PM

Description: New York Mets righthander Matt Harvey has been diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow, according to Mike Francesca of WFAN.
Insight: Harvey, who will be placed on the 15-day disabled list, might need Tommy John surgery. The 24-year old was the starter in the All-Star game and was 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA, .931 WHIP and 191 strikeouts in 178 1/3 innings pitched.
 
8/13/2013 11:59:00 AM
Description: With no championships on the line, New York righthander Matt Harvey is not expected to exceed 200 inning this season, according to the mets.com website.
Insight: Harvey threw 169 1/3 innings last season and has thrown 159 2/3 to date so a 200 innings limit is a reasonable level for a young pitcher. Unfortunately, it could cost fantasy owners around four starts because averaging almost seven innings per start he would make just six additional starts this year.
 
Hot8/7/2013 9:37:00 PM
Description: New York righthander Matt Harvey tossed his first career shutout Wednesday against the Rockies.
Insight: It was also Harvey's first complete game, though he did pitch nine innings against the White Sox on May 7th (that game went into extra innings). He's 2-1 with a 0.91 ERA in his last four outings.

Description: According to Mets manager Terry Collins, the team will probably shut Matt Harvey down after ten more starts. SOURCE: Newark Star-Ledger
