“#Matt Harvey could be pitching sooner than the rest of MLB”

Teams in the Korea Baseball Organization and Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball are looking at Harvey, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman. Last week, Harvey’s representatives had reached out to KBO teams and now the interest may be mutual.
The 31-year-old Harvey has been posting videos of himself throwing bullpens as he attempts a comeback. He last pitched for the Las Vegas Aviators, the Athletics’ Triple-A team, at the end of last season after getting released by the Angels.
“I hope somebody gives me a shot,” Harvey recently told The Post’s Dan Martin. “I feel like I have many more years in me.”
While Harvey may be injury-free, the Mets are not expected to give him a shot to prove it, The Post’s Mike Puma reported.
The KBO is already about 30 games into its season while the NPB is set to return June 19.
