LAKELAND, Fla. -- Sandy Alderson began with a quip when asked about Matt Harvey's early Saturday tweet, subsequently deleted, that read: "2014 Harvey day will happen."

The GM joked after the Mets' 3-2 win against the Tigers: "I don't follow him on Twitter."

More seriously, Alderson strongly implied there remains a low probability Harvey appears in 2014. But, the GM added, that's an issue that ought to wait until the summer to be addressed with any clarity.

"I can't control what he tweets or says by other means," Alderson said. "But if that's how he feels, that's his perspective and we'll see where it goes.

"It's one of those 'never say never.' I mean, look are the probabilities with him? Everybody's different. It's -- what? -- not even the middle of March. Let's wait until the middle of July before we maybe address that question again."
