New York Mets All Star Matt Harvey pitched six scoreless innings in 6-3 win against the Nationals according to CBS Sports.
Harvey is coming off a 19 month absence from Tommy John Surgery and did not disappoint the MLB and Mets fans. He did start out the game slow by walking a men and needed 40 pitches to get his first six outs. In the six scoreless innings he struck out nine and allowed three singles along with one double. Harvey pitched well under 90 pitches and threw 63 strikes.
His throwing of the fastball didn’t change in his return. In 2013 Harvey’s fastball averaged 96.9 mph’s and today he it was between 95-97 mph’s. There are no problems with his reconstructed elbow as all baseball fans should be excited about his return to the league.
