New York Mets SP Matt Harvey will look to bounce back in 2018 after dealing with a scapular stress reaction in his throwing shoulder last season. The injury occured in July 2017. Harvey received PRP injection to stimulate healing. Stress fractures typically require 6-8 weeks of rest for full healing. Could be indicative of weakness in other areas of the upper extremity chain, though should have no lingering effects by start of 2018 season.
