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: 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.

Description: Mets ace Matt Harvey allowed just one unearned run in eight innings Friday against Washington but was unable to get the win.
