LUCIE, Fla. New York Mets right-hander Matt Harvey has been cleared to begin tossing a baseball, the ace told ESPNNewYork.com. "If things can work out quicker than normal, then we'll see," Harvey said last weekend. "But I can't make that call." Harvey is unsure what his initial throwing script entails. Through a team spokesman, the right-hander declined comment on the latest step in his recovery, as did general manager Sandy Alderson.
