Matt Harvey to mound next week

NEW YORK -- Matt Harvey has the go-ahead to get on a mound next week for the first time

lastname Harvey since undergoing Tommy John surgery on Oct. 22, 2013.

Harvey had wanted to be on a mound in June, but did not have organization permission.

It's clear Harvey will not pitch in the majors this season. Still, it's possible Harvey will pitch briefly in the fall instructional league, which spans late September and early October in Florida.
