Matt Harvey had blood clots in his bladder, will make his Opening Day start
Harvey is back at Mets camp, though Kristie Ackert of the Daily News says he still had his hospital bracelet on and looked “tired and pale.” He may have been sapped by the experience, but the Mets just announced that he will make his Opening Day start on Sunday as scheduled.
Worth noting: while Harvey appears to be OK, blood clots in one’s bladder/urine is an extraordinarily scary thing. While it can be minor, it is also a top symptom of some serious forms of cancer, so you can imagine that the last 24 hours were dicey as hell for both Harvey and the Mets.
Not that today isn’t bringing with it some moments of levity:

Here’s hoping he’s doing OK and will be back on the mound shortly. And Matt: when you gotta go, you gotta go. So go, OK?
