07:21 AM ET 09.30 | Matt Harvey's rehab may be in its infancy, but that doesn't mean it's easy. According to manager Terry Collins, the Mets ace has been undergoing "pretty intense rehabilitation" of the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow at the Hospital for Special Surgery, but doesn't have a timetable yet to begin throwing. Harvey is expected to begin a throwing program that lasts 6-8 weeks to determine if he can avoid Tommy John surgery that would likely cost him all of next season. Harvey will report to the team's complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla. when it's determined he can begin throwing. "We hope that's soon," Collins said before the Mets beat the Brewers 3-2 on Sunday. "Once he gets down there and begins the throwing program, we'll see what the stages are, where he's at."

QUOTE(#6):

that's really game 163 yo

while correct, game 163 would not exist, nor be necessary except for the playoffs, therefore, it must be considered a Bud Seligerror ... a hybrid regular season/playoff game ...

The guy couldn't make it through an entire season without breaking down, yet he's going to rehab an injury and somehow make it through all of next year? He'll more than likely get hurt again next season, miss most of that year and then get TJ surgery and miss the following year.

problem is Harvey is probably delaying the inevitable. If Harvey waits until November or later and then find out he will need surgery. Not only will he miss all of 2014 but most of spring training of 2015.
