Since being diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow two weeks ago, New York Mets All-Star pitcher Matt Harvey has done nothing except for ice his elbow and ride a bicycle.

Harvey is still waiting to take a second MRI to determine if he will have Tommy John surgery which will put his 2014 season in jeopardy. He will see orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Monday for a second opinion.

He hopes to avoid that surgery but says everything so far is good with his injured arm.

"Everything feels fine. My arm feels great," Harvey said, according to ESPN.com. "I'm still very optimistic about everything. But I'm not a doctor, so we'll see what happens. I'm going to get as many opinions as I can.  And which way I decide to go, I'm going to go 150 percent."
