Matt Harvey set to advance to 120 feet

By Adam Rubin

DENVER -- Matt Harvey's return from Tommy John surgery continues to move at a brisk pace.

Harvey is set to advance to throwing on flat ground at 120 feet as he continues his rehab from the Oct. 22 procedure. He will meet the Mets in Miami during the upcoming series and accompany the team back to New York.

Harvey has been working this week at the Mets' Port St. Lucie, Fla., complex.

While Harvey is not imminently due to step on a mound, he is advancing toward that goal, which should occur in June.

How well has Harvey's recovery gone? Well, shortly after the surgery, he already was bending his elbow enough to touch his shoulder, which is not customarily achievable at the outset.
