Right-hander Matt Harvey insists he is "completely on board" with the front office's plan to limit his innings during the regular season so that he can pitch deep into October without reaching an innings cap if the New York Mets remain alive.

Harvey is on track to return to the majors from the get-go in 2015 after missing all of this past season recovering from Tommy John surgery. He underwent the procedure on Oct. 22, 2013.

Harvey has been throwing on flat ground at Citi Field six days a week despite temperatures reaching as low as the mid-30s. He plans to resume throwing off a mound in about two weeks for the first time since the regular season.

After spending January at agent Scott Boras' complex in Newport Beach, California, Harvey plans to report early to spring training -- about Feb. 1. If the team signs off, Harvey will face batters for the first time since the surgery upon arriving in Florida.

Harvey said the one pitch he will wait to throw until late in spring training is his slider. Otherwise, he is fully cleared to use his entire repertoire.

Harvey had touched 95 mph during a throwing session off the mound at Citi Field in September before an offseason hiatus in his throwing program.
