The Mets have told Harvey (elbow) that he will not pitch this year, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports.
Although he's now several bullpen session deep into his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery, Harvey will not get a chance to pitch this season with the team not wanting to jeopardize his 2015 campaign. It's hardly a surprise, after Jefermy Hefner recently suffered a major setback in his recovery from reconstructive elbow surgery. The Mets will likely pump the brakes with Harvey but he should be back at full strength come spring training.
