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 York's 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. I've got a lot of work to do. It's going to be a tough process with how things felt today. But I've 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.
