The latest thing happening for The New York Mets is that Matt Harvey will be continuing his rehab stint in New York. He underwent Tommy John surgery recently, which involves the replacement of anarm’s torn ligament with a healthier one.
Harvey didn’t want to have to spend the whole season in Port St. Lucie, Florida, andafter some deliberation two team sourcesconfirmed that he is indeed going to finish his rehab close to his team. It is public knowledge that there was a bit of a feud with the front office about it, but Harvey ended up getting his wish.
He will work out in New York with the team, and spend some time with the team when allowed during the season. Harvey will not go on the road at all with the Mets, but once he is ready minor league rehab will start. He will return to Florida to start upon the road to recovery on June 1st.
