Matt Harvey, who has not faced batters since undergoing Tommy John surgery in October of 2013, is scheduled to take the mound against hitters on Friday.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Harvey has been throwing off the mound every other day since he arrived at camp, but he’ll get an extra day of rest between his last mound session (which was Tuesday) and his appearance against batters on Friday.

Harvey is basically on a regular schedule and manager Terry Collins recently said that he would pitch one of the first five games of the regular season.
