WASHINGTON -- The script calls for Matt Harvey to rehab in New York when the Mets are at home and rehab in Port St. Lucie, Fla., when the Mets are on the road. There is a deviation from that pattern this weekend, though.

Harvey is with the Mets in D.C. for the weekend series.

This Mets road trip is just the one stop for three games in the nation’s capital. The team returns home Sunday night.

“When we talked with Matt in spring training about all of this rehab stuff he was going through, we looked at these three games,” Terry Collins said. “And to send him back to Florida doesn’t make any sense. Come here, do your throwing, do all of your stuff, be with the team, which is ultimately what he wants to do anyway. And then when we go on that long road trip [May 29-June 8], he’ll be back in St. Lucie obviously.”
