Matt Harvey did not mind his updated pitching schedule, one that handed him two unanticipated extra days of rest.

"I'm not worried about it," Harvey said before Sunday afternoon's loss to the Braves. "It's been done before."

But manager Terry Collins was less than enthused.

"I don't like it," Collins said.

The Mets were forced to bump Harvey back a day because of Saturday's rainout. Coupled with today's scheduled day off, he inherits two extra days. He is scheduled to start Tuesday night against the Chicago White Sox at Citi Field.

"This game is about routines and about repetitions," Collins said. "When you pull these guys out of their routines and their reps, it's a problem."

Harvey threw a career-high 121 pitches during his last start seven days ago in Miami. He said his arm suffered no ill effects as a result of that inflated pitch count.

"I feel like I can go out there [and throw] 120, 130 pitches each time," Harvey said. "My body can handle it."

Collins said Harvey's delivery is pretty quiet – "There's no violent movement," he said – but he still isn't a fan of drastic tweaks to any pitcher's throwing routine. Harvey said he was planning to spend some time in the bullpen Sunday to get his arm loose.
