PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - New York Mets ace Matt Harvey threw a baseball for the first time since having elbow ligament-replacement surgery. With the largest media contingent in camp since Mets pitchers and catchers reported a week ago and with a group of fans lining the fence of a back field at New Yorks spring training complex Saturday, the right-hander threw 20 times from 60 feet to a bullpen catcher. "It was awesome," Harvey said. "I know it was 20 throws at 60 feet, but everything felt absolutely amazing. Ive got a lot of work to do. Its going to be a tough process with how things felt today. But Ive got to stick with it and move forward." Harvey threw on the four-month anniversary of his surgery — Oct. 22 — which was the date he originally targeted for throwing. Graham Zusi Jersey .
