The right-hander was scheduled to pitch in Tuesday's game, but will instead pitch the first two innings of Wednesday's Grapefruit League contest. Harvey admits he was scared that this condition could be more serious, saying "for me, yeah. I didn't really know what was going on."
Manager Terry Collins said he had no worries about his guy starting on Sunday, and is now relieved that the issue has come and gone so quick.
Harvey began to feel uncomfortable Sunday, his 27th birthday, saying he felt a bad pain throughout the night. The third-year starter would then have trouble going to the restroom, but now feels no pain and says everything is back to normal.
It would've been a big loss for the Mets to be without their front-of-the-rotation pitcher to begin the season. Harvey has dominated the month of April in his young career, posting an 8-0 record with a 2.15 ERA, with 77 strikeouts in 67 innings.
