Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will make a rehab start for the Brooklyn Cyclones on Wednesday night at MCU Park — and tickets are only $10.

The game against the Aberdeen Firebirds begins at 7 p.m. and fans will have an opportunity to run the bases once the game is complete. Gates open as early as 5:30 p.m.

Harvey is making his second appearance with the Cyclones in less than a week after pitching one inning on Saturday. The 28-year-old right-hander is working his way back from a shoulder injury, which landed him on the disabled list in June. It’s not clear exactly how many innings he will pitch this time around.

The $10 ticket promotion is a perfect way to see one of your favorite Mets stars without breaking the bank, and in fact, all tickets in the entire stadium are only $10. Buy tickets here.

If you can’t make it to Wednesday’s game, the Cyclones will continue their series with the Ironbirds on Thursday and Friday. Friday is Jackie Robinson Night, and all fans receive a free bucket cap. As always, there are also fireworks on Friday night after the game.

The Mets drafted Harvey with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft, but he never played for the Brooklyn Cyclones prior to last week; this will be his first career game at MCU Park. He started his career with Single-A St. Lucie in 2011 and was promoted to Double-A Binghamton thereafter. In 13 games for the Mets this season, Harvey is 4-3 with a 5.25 ERA.
