Super Agent Scott Boras said yesterday that he expects his client, Mets starter Matt Harvey, to be back to 100 percent for the start of spring training.

Harvey underwent surgery in mid-July for thoracic outlet syndrome, which is an impingement of nerves and arteries in the shoulder. The procedure involves removing a rib in order to free compressed nerves, which sounds absolutely horrible, but that’s what they do. Harvey began playing catch recently and, according to Boras, immediately felt “big relief” after the procedure.

Boras said that Harvey should be on track to report to spring training, healthy and on time, in February.
