New York Mets right-hander Matt Harvey has been cleared to begin tossing a baseball, the ace told ESPNNewYork.com.
He met with team doctor David Altchek at the Mets’ spring training complex Wednesday before the decision was made.
Harvey, 24, is uncertain which day he will begin a throwing program, but it will be in the next few days. He underwent Tommy John surgery Oct. 22 and had been hopeful of beginning to toss a baseball near the four-month anniversary.
