Matt Harvey cheers on Mets from hospital bed following surgery (pic)


Matt Harvey may be in the earliest stages of recovery from a surgery where he had his top rib removed to deal with thoracic outlet syndrome, but the New York Mets ace made sure to let everyone know he’s still capable of rooting on his teammates.

Harvey on Wednesday tweeted out an image of himself taking in the Mets-Cubs afternoon tilt at Wrigley Field, two days after undergoing surgery.

Unfortunately for Harvey and the Mets, the Cubs were on the winning side this day, winning by a score of 6-2.

Although in light of his use of a particular emoji, there’s been no word on whether or not Harvey busted out a medicated rendition of “Meet the Mets” from his hospital bed.

At least there’s little chance Harvey will run afoul of the Mets organization due to tweeting a post-surgery image, unlike the time he did the same to celebrate his one-year anniversary of undergoing Tommy John surgery.

With all that said, as Harvey put it himself, the road to recovery has begun. Onward and upward as they say.
