MLB.com - Maria Torres: Mets’ ace right-hander feels good after tossing 20 fastballs at team’s Minors complex

So less than a year has passed in what’s normally a 12-18-month rehab process. Harvey had been concerned before Tuesday’s session that he wouldn’t be able to find the strike zone or that he’d forget his mechanics, which he won’t alter—but all the concern was for naught. He threw hard, like “nothing had happened.”

“I didn’t think things would feel this good and this easy, but I couldn’t be happier,” he said. “Excited about moving forward. The mechanics, I feel like they didn’t leave in the amount of time that I wasn’t able to use them. I was happy that things were smooth and I’m glad I had no setbacks.”

Harvey will continue his throwing program in Florida. He’ll throw about three more 20-pitch bullpen sessions before he starts mixing in his secondary pitches and increasing the amount of throws. He will work his way up to live batting practice and, from there, keep throwing through September. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told the media on Friday that the team planned to shut Harvey down at the beginning of October.
