Matt Harvey was in Port St. Lucie today to throw off a mound. The right-hander was awesome last year under he tore the UCL in his throwing elbow in August. He underwent Tommy John surgery in October and is expected to be fully healthy in time for the 2015 season.
What did Harvey look like while throwing off a mound? Fortunately many intrepid tweeters were there to cover the action.
Wow! He's pitching again. This is pretty sweet. Mets PR master Jay Horwitz and fellow rehab patient Jeremy Hefner were also on hand.

Finally, Jon Santucci has the full breakdown. Harvey threw 20 pitches from the mound in addition to five warmup tosses. He was surprised that throwing felt as good as it did. Given that, it's not surprising to hear that Harvey's desire to pitch in a game this season has not changed. Stay tuned to Amazin' Avenue for all your Mets and Matt Harvey news coverage.
