Matt Harvey says he is "completely on board" with the New York Mets' plan to limit his innings during the regular season so he can pitch deep into October without reaching an innings cap.
Harvey is on track to return on Opening Day after missing all of this past season recovering from Tommy John surgery. He underwent the procedure on Oct. 22, 2013.
Sandy Anderson recently indicated that Harvey will have a "soft cap" on his innings next season.
"You know what? I'm going to be happy to throw an entire year," Harvey said. "Whatever they decide, it's in the best interests of both the team and me moving forward. I can't wait to throw every five days and just be healthy for a full season.
"Looking forward, if you were to map out a whole season, you're going to have to figure out some changes throughout the year in order to get to a certain point. I mean, if you make 33 starts and seven innings a start, obviously doing the math that's over what I'm probably going to throw."
