Matt Harvey has been aggressive with his rehab from Tommy John Surgery. Harvey, who boldly proclaimed a few weeks ago that he wanted to pitch at the end of the 2014 season, has done everything in his power to meet that goal. Harvey had surgery back in October, and he was widely expected to miss the entire 2014 season. Harvey did take a significant step in his road to recovery today when he told ESPN New York's Adam Rubin that team doctors cleared him to begin a throwing program.

Harvey will begin his throwing program sometime within the next week, roughly four months after he had his surgery. Harvey told Rubin that the four month mark was his goal to begin throwing a baseball after the procedure. Harvey is at the same point in his rehab as fellow righty Jeremy Hefner, who had Tommy John Surgery in August, two full months before Harvey underwent his procedure. It is still very early in the process, but it appears as if Harvey is ahead of schedule in his rehab. This doesn't mean much, however, as the Mets are expected to exercise extreme caution with their young ace. 

Just because the Super Bowl left NY/NJ it doesn't mean the NFL action is over.
