Matt Harvey SP NYM 1 Month

Monday's simulated game marked the last time Harvey (elbow) will throw this season, the Star-Ledger's Mike Vorkunov reports.

He threw a couple innings to simulated hitters on the mound at Citi Field before Monday's game, using all of his pitches except his slider, and hitting 95 mph on the radar gun with some consistency. General manager Sandy Alderson said Harvey will be on par with the rest of the team's pitchers entering spring training, so fantasy owners should make sure to properly value the Mets' ace heading into 2015.

Harvey (elbow) threw two innings off the mound at Citi Field to simulated hitters before Monday's game, Newsday's David Lennon reports.

He was throwing under the watchful eyes of the Mets' coaching staff, but will obviously not take the mound in a big-league game until next season. However, owners may be able to expect peak Harvey right out of the gate in 2015, as he'll be so far removed from the surgery, that command and velocity could be all the way back via off-season work.

Harvey (elbow) will conclude his rehab at the end of the month before picking up his his throwing program in spring training, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

After undergoing Tommy John surgery last October, Harvey entered the season with aspirations of pitching for the Mets in September, but his 2014 campaign will end without him even facing hitters in batting practice or throwing at full strength. He'll throw approximately three more bullpen sessions in front of the team before he's shut down until the spring, where he's expected to go through the normal February preseason preparation as the rest of the Mets' starting pitchers.

The Mets have told Harvey (elbow) that he will not pitch this year, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Although he's now several bullpen session deep into his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery, Harvey will not get a chance to pitch this season with the team not wanting to jeopardize his 2015 campaign. It's hardly a surprise, after Jefermy Hefner recently suffered a major setback in his recovery from reconstructive elbow surgery. The Mets will likely pump the brakes with Harvey but he should be back at full strength come spring training.

Harvey (elbow) may not appear in a game until spring training due to Jeremy Hefner's recent major setback in his return from Tommy John surgery, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

The Mets have tried to scale back Harvey's return and this announcement by GM Sandy Alderson is further indication that the team will be very cautious with Harvey. There was some speculation that Harvey could pitch in the fall league, but that looks to be a very remote possibility now.

Matt Harvey (elbow) has been cleared to begin throwing off a mound next week.

Harvey was hoping to hop on a mound in June, but the Mets decided to play it safe and nixed that idea. The right-hander could get some innings in a fall instructional league but won't return to the majors until 2015.

Matt Harvey (elbow) estimated Friday that he'll likely throw from a mound for the first time in July.

Harvey originally hoped to begin throwing from a mound earlier this month, but the Mets have tapped the breaks on his rehab. As of now, he's still throwing from flat ground at distances up to around 120 feet. He's only eight months removed from Tommy John surgery, so this is hardly out of the ordinary. Harvey is unlikely to pitch in the majors this season, but the Mets weren't expecting him to anyway.
