07:32 AM ET 01.24 | Matt Harvey fully understands his situation. No matter how well his recovery from Tommy John Surgery is going -- and it is going well, he says, as far ahead of schedule as he can push it -- the Mets probably aren't going to let him pitch this season. But that can't stop him from hoping. "When you see stories of guys coming back in 10 months, I'm going to think, 'Hey, I can come back in nine,'" Harvey said Thursday. "Unfortunately, I don't make those decisions. I can't throw the uniform on and go back on the mound without the permission of higher-ups." ... [Harvey] had Tommy John elbow ligament repair surgery Oct. 22 after suffering a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament during the season. At first he tried to strengthen the area and avoid surgery, but ultimately opted to go under the knife.

He probably would have pitched at some point this season if he hadn't dragged out deciding whether to have TJ surgery or not.

Wainwright took an entire year to recover and he wasn't really ready when he came back.

QUOTE(#2):

Don't rush it. Your team will not be in contention this year anyway.

If it's based on the Mets being in contention, Harvey won't have to be back for at least a few years. Assuming the Mets ownership sells the team to someone that can spend a few bucks. After all, they are in NY.
