One day after being struck on the right triceps by a line drive, Mets righthander Matt Harvey expects to make his next scheduled start with no issues.

"It's a little swollen," he said Sunday. "I'll be fine."

Harvey won Game 1 of the National League Championship Series by holding the Cubs to two runs in 72/3 innings on Saturday night. He pitched through getting hit by Dexter Fowler's liner in the sixth.

Harvey is in line to pitch in Game 5, his third postseason start. He's 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA in his first two playoff outings.

Uribe on the mend

Juan Uribe resumed baseball activities for the first time since aggravating a chest injury near the end of the regular season.

Uribe said he felt fine after taking swings in the batting cage on Saturday and Sunday night. He also fielded grounders at second base.

Uribe would be eligible to rejoin the active roster only in the event of an injury. If he's healthy, he could be added to the roster if the Mets advance to the World Series.

After arriving in a July trade with the Braves, Uribe batted .219 with six homers.

Niese won't miss game

Jonathon Niese will attend his grandmother's funeral Tuesday but does not expect to miss any games in the NLCS. Niese, who retired the only batter he faced in Game 2 Sunday night, is expected to meet the club in Chicago for Game 3 later tomorrow night.
