New York Mets - PlayerWatch

RHP Matt Harvey marked the six-month anniversary of his Tommy John surgery in a pair of interesting fashions Tuesday. Harvey threw 20 pitches on flat ground a few hours after he deleted his Twitter account. He had posted in the morning a picture of himself -- smiling and making an obscene hand gesture -- from his hospital room the morning of the surgery. He said he posted the picture because he thought it was an amusing glimpse into his personality, but the Mets asked him to delete it and Harvey decided to get rid of his Twitter and Instagram accounts entirely.

"I wish I knew," Granderson told reporters when asked about the slump. "Because if I knew, I would hopefully be able to figure it out."
