NEW YORK -- As the Mets packed their bags on Sunday in anticipation of their first road trip of the season, Chris Young and Matt Harvey each did likewise. Only their destination was different. While the Mets boarded a plane for Atlanta, Young and Harvey set a course south for Port St. Lucie, Fla.

For Harvey, the trip was his first of many back to Florida this summer. Harvey recently worked out an agreement allowing him to stay with the team in New York during homestands, but rehab in Port St. Lucie when the Mets are on the road. Once he is ready to ramp up his rehab from Tommy John surgery around mid-summer, Harvey will move to Florida full-time.

For Young, it was the start of a rehab program that he hopes will allow him to come off the disabled list on April 18, when he is first eligible. Young is nursing a strained right quadriceps muscle that has limited him to a single inning this season. He does not yet know when he will begin a running program, but expects to receive an updated itinerary Monday from the staff in Port St. Lucie.
