After being slowed down nearly six weeks ago, Matt Harvey's rehab is set to ramp back up again. The New York Mets have indicated that Harvey is set to throw off a mound next week, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports. Harvey wanted to throw off a mound back in June, but the Mets slowed him down to take a more conservative approach to his rehab.
Harvey is not likely to pitch for the Mets this season, but the Mets are willing to let him pitch in the instructional league in September and October so he can get some live action on the mound. Harvey was earlier set on making 6-8 starts for the Mets in August, but the team's medical staff expressed concern that Harvey's rehab progressed too quickly for their liking. Either way, this is a very important step for Harvey, who is expected to be ready to go for spring training in 2015.
