Now Commenting On:

Matt Harvey will not throw off a mound until after the All-Star break, Sandy Alderson told reporters on Friday.

Similarly, Harvey recently said he expects to throw from a mound in late July (ESPN, June 21).

In the meantime, he continues to throw off flat ground.

In addition, Alderson said in late May that, although Harvey may wish to make five to seven starts this season, the Mets want him to wait at least 11 months after his Tommy John surgery before he pitches in a game, which is standard protocol and the doctor recommended time frame.

Harvey has said he wants to go in to the off season knowing he’s capable of pitching in a game.
