Dispatches from Port St. Lucie, 2/16

Pitchers and catchers took their physicals Sunday, in preparation of the team’s first official workout Monday.

What we learned: Matt Harvey is going to have a tough go of it this spring, rehabbing while the rest of his teammates participate in more extensive workouts. Harvey said it took him a while to come to grips with having Tommy John surgery on his injured right elbow.

What they said: “You can’t curl up in a corner and just pretend it didn’t happen. I remember that first day. My main reaction was disappointment. But while it’s not like I was expecting it to happen, I wasn’t shocked that it happened.” –Assistant GM John Ricco on Harvey’s injury

What we wrote: “Harvey recovers while Mets prepare for season”; “Young pitchers look to Valverde for veteran leadership”; “Mets will wear patch to honor Kiner in 2014″

What we saw: Harvey showed up and discussed his rehab from Tommy John:
