Tommy John, Stephen Strasburg and Matt Harvey: A ligament runs through them

So for a night, with two pitchers who endured this bizarre procedure that is now considered rote, there was a contrast. That had Collins not only evaluating whether Harvey would make his next start — “We’re going to look at that,” he said — but also using Strasburg as an example for Harvey.

“That guy that pitched tonight for them, he had a couple of mediocre years, and now he’s resurged,” Collins said. “. . . [Harvey] went above and beyond last year, and I’m not sure he’s recuperated from it.”
