He will throw for the first time from 120 feet on Friday, according to beat reporter Kristie Ackert (Daily News, May 6).
“I feel great,” Harvey told Ackert, who says Harvey hopes to throw off a mound by late-May, early June. “Everything in my program, that I am doing now, is geared toward that. It could change, but that’s what my plan is.”
Harvey has said in public that he would like to pitch in a big-league game this season. However, according to previous reports, Mets officials have repeatedly said this is not likely.
