Its becoming quite easy to see why the Mets want Harvey to rehab in Florida, as opposed to remaining with the team for the duration of the 2014 season. Spring training is only a few days old and Harvey has dominated headlines, even seeking out the media. The Mets were apparently upset that he took it upon himself to break the news that he had been cleared to begin throwing. A season full of constant coverage of his rehab and personal life could easily become a distraction to a team that should have its hands full simply remaining competitive in the NL East.
