Found June 12, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
New York Mets right-handed starting pitcher Matt Harvey threw a routine bullpen session yesterday without issue, and he remains on track to make Thursday's start against the St. Louis Cardinals, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. Harvey gave Mets fans a scare during his last outing, as he exited the appearance with back tightness. He was lifted from the game after he ran the bases in the seventh inning following a single. There was initially thought that he sustained his back injury while on the base paths, but Harvey later said that he had experienced the discomfort previously and could have pitched through it if he had to. But the Mets and manager Terry Collins weren't taking any chances with their young ace, as they wanted to ensure that he didn't worsen the ailment. They've apparently succeeded, as it looks like Harvey will be able to return to the mound tomorrow to take on the Cardinals. Harvey has made a name for himself this season after a strong debut in 2012. Over 13 starts the 24-year-old has posted an ERA and WHIP of 2.10 and 0.911 with an impressive strikeout-to-walk ratio Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Mets Waste A Gem By Harvey In 2-1 Loss To Cards

Well, this is sort of becoming the norm now, isn’t it? You can almost predict exactly what’s going to happen. Matt Harvey goes out, pitches his heart out, and somehow gets cheated out of a win.
