PITTSBURGH -- Terry Collins said the blister on Matt Harvey's index finger is now a non-issue.

Harvey is expected to be introduced as the NL All-Star starter at a 1:30 p.m. press conference on Monday at Citi Field.

"The next day, after those blisters, you looked at his fingers and you could see where he had them," Collins said about the blister issue. "But they're clean. He's fine. This guy, when the game was over [in San Francisco], he said, 'OK, what do I need to do to get rid of this thing?' He had the blood blister underneath his fingernail. 'What do I need to do?' 'Well, we need to pop it.' 'Well then, pop it. Let's go. Let's get it over with.' The next day it's gone."
