NEW YORK -- Mets ace Matt Harvey took the next step in his rehabilitation from right
NEW YORK -- Mets ace Matt Harvey took the next step in his rehabilitation from right elbow surgery, increasing his throwing distance Friday from 90 to 120 feet. Anthony Hitchens Chiefs Jersey . Harvey said his target date for throwing off a mound is June 10. "Any sort of progress were making -- obviously right now its being able to move back and throw from a greater distance -- is a step in the right direction," he said. The right-hander said he makes 20 throws at a time from the rehab distance but needs many more as he warms up. While he feels ready to ramp up the rehab and would like to pitch in a major league game this season, Harvey understands the journey back is a long one and he is following the protocol. Harvey had Tommy John surgery Oct. 22, about two months after New York said the first-time All-Star had a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament. Recovery from that injury generally takes 12 to 18 months. The plan is for Harvey is to throw at 120 feet for three weeks then move back to 150 feet off flat ground before he throws from the mound. "The process is right where it needs to be and Im extremely happy with how everything feels and how everything is going," he said. "Im excited to move forward." Also, the Mets recalled shortstop Wilmer Flores from Triple-A Las Vegas and inserted him into the starting lineup for their series opener against Philadelphia. "Dont mistake it, we hope that Wilmer gives us some offence but hes got to catch the baseball, too," manager Terry Collins said. Flores, who was signed as a shortstop but played the other three infield positions the last two years, has committed seven errors in 25 games at shortstop with Las Vegas this year. Collins said Flores problem has been throwing the ball to first base. Omar Quintanilla was designated for assignment to make room for Flores. The Mets hope Flores can lift their sagging offence, which hadnt scored in 23 innings entering Friday and was ranked near the bottom of the NL in slugging percentage (.332) and on-base percentage (.300). The Mets were tied with San Diego for the league worst in homers with 20. The 22-year-old Flores was batting .307 with five homers and 25 RBIs for the 51s. First baseman Lucas Duda was out of the lineup Friday because of the stomach flu. Starting shortstop Ruben Tejada is hitting .183 with two extra-base hits and 21 strikeouts in 82 at-bats. Quintanilla batted .207 with one extra-base hit in 29 at-bats. Kendall Fuller Jersey .

Gaborik was acquired in a trade with Columbus on Wednesday and skated on the top line with centre Anze Kopitar and right-winger Justin Williams. "We created some things," said Gaborik, who logged 16:38 of ice time. TORONTO -- Julio Cesar is the newest member of Toronto FC. The Brazilian goalkeeper signed a loan deal with the Major League Soccer club on Friday as he looks to get playing time ahead of this summers World Cup in his home country. The 34-year-old Cesar has been relegated to a backup role with second-tier English club Queens Park Rangers and will join Toronto for the start of the 2014 season. General manger Tim Bezbatchenko would not confirm details of the loan agreement, but it is expected that Cesar will be back with Toronto following the World Cup. "We (found) an agreement, between me, QPR and my agent," said Cesar. "My agent ... they were talking with them. We just (found) the best agreement between everyone so thats the reason I can sign with (Toronto)." Toronto FC head coach Ryan Nelsen is a former teammate of Cesars at QPR and had a big hand in acquiring the goalkeeper. "I keep in contact with a lot of ex-players and it was out of that an opportunity potentially that could arise that we could bring Julio here," said Nelsen. "As soon as I got a sniff of that, it didnt take long to register how important it would be to have a man like that." Cesar lost his starting role with QPR to England international Rob Green once the Hoops were relegated from the Premiere League last season and has appeared in just one game for the club this season. Cesar, who has earned 77 caps for Brazil, won the Copa America in 2004 and the Confederations Cup on two occasions. Before his stint at QPR, he also played at Inter Milan, where he won five Italian league titles. Additionally, he has won three Coppa Italia titles, the 2010 UEFA Champions League and the 2010 Club World Cup. As for his first impressions of TFCs training facility in north Toronto, Cesar was amazed. "Thee first thing when I arrive here, I asked to visit the training grounds. Breeland Speaks Jersey. I need to be honest here, I was impressed," he said. "Its much better than many, many clubs in Europe that I have had the opportunity to know. Its an amazing training ground, you have everything. You can do good work here." Cesar joins a TFC lineup that has undergone a radical shift this off-season, including the acquisition of England striker Jermain Defoe, American midfielder Michael Bradley, fellow Brazilian Gilberto Oliveira Souza Junior and former MLS MVP Dwayne De Rosario. Gilberto, 24, just missed out on an opportunity to play with childhood idol, and fellow Brazilian star, Ronaldo, and is looking forward to playing in front of Cesar. "Im going to play with another legend and Im definitely looking forward to that," he said through a translator. "(Cesars) played with the best strikers in the world ... and I have nothing but things to learn from him." The signing of Cesar moves fellow goalkeeper Joe Bendik, who had a 6-16-11 record in 2013, to the backup role for the 2014 season. "Im only looking at it as a win-win situation. He comes in and I get to learn from a legend," said the 24-year-old Bendik. "Im going to compete with him every day and off the field, Ill pick his brain for just about any piece of knowledge I can get. Seeing a guy whose played in a couple World Cups, hes won champions league. "You can only learn so much from him so its a win-win situation for the club and for myself." Added Nelson: "When you have the opportunity to ply your trade day-in and day-out beside a man whos obviously done what (Cesars) done, the age that he is and the experience that hell be able to give to Joe you cant tell how valuable that is."
