New York Mets Matt Harvey with a stress injury or a stress fracture to the scapula which is the shoulder blade of the shoulder. This is painful but a fairly rare injury and likely due to changes in his throwing mechanics. Could be 2 to 4 weeks to return to play. They will need to work extensively with him on mechanics in therapy and he will likely get started on vitamin D to help the bone to heal and evaluate from there.
