Harvey was supposed to throw off a slope for the first time Tuesday but he was told last week while working out at the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida, that the plan was being scrapped.
New York general manager Sandy Alderson said there is nothing wrong with Harvey. The Mets just wanted to slow the process down. Alderson says research shows 11 months is the benchmark for a pitcher to return to big league games after having Tommy John surgery.
Harvey had surgery Oct. 22 so the earliest he could be expected back with the Mets is the last week of September.
