Mets suspend Matt Harvey three days for violating team rules


The 28-year-old will likely file a grievance against the Mets for his unpaid suspension, per Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

A freaky season for the New York Mets took another hairpin turn Sunday morning when the team announced it had suspended right-hander Matt Harvey three days without pay for a violation of team rules. He knows. And the team knows. Like I said, there were rules here that weren't adhered to and we took a stance.

The Dark Knight will not go quietly into the night. And it wasn't just Matt Harvey.

Mets manager Terry Collins referenced the prank in his pregame news conference. This situation might get uglier before it gets better, but as of now, it looks like Harvey should make his next scheduled start.

Two Chicago police officers were shot Tuesday night on the South Side, a Chicago Police Department spokesperson said . The New York Daily News reported that the two Chicago Police Department officers were transported to Stroger Hospital.

The New York rotation is already an infirmary and now with Harvey suspended becomes all the worse. Harvey is in the midst of his arbitration years, and it may not be a surprise if the Mets decline to offer him a contract, given his struggles and injury woes from 2016. And now the Mets treat Matt Harvey like that, exactly, even though not too long ago they thought he could be the cornerstone of what were going to be more World Series teams than one.

Can you imagine what accomplished veterans such as Clayton Kershaw or Max Scherzer think of the latest adventures of Harvey and Syndergaard, who tore his right lat last Sunday just three days after balking at the team's request to undergo an MRI for a biceps issue?

This is how fast things change, no matter how much fastball you have. "But the way that our starting pitching can throw the ball, and the way that our bullpen has been constructed, there'll probably be more opportunities this season".

The Chicago Cubs placed left-hander Brett Anderson on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

The Mets were on a roll, winning three straight, scoring five runs or more in 9 straight games and then came Sunday. Syndergaard issued an apology Saturday to Mets public relations director Jay Horowitz and to members of the media for an outburst on April 27. So did Zack Wheeler.

Milone, 30, did not pitch well with Milwaukee before being designated for assignment on May 1. Say it again: You want to make the baseball gods laugh when it comes to young pitchers?

On Sunday, team manager Sandy Alderson announced that Harvey was suspended, and brought up Adam Wilk from the triple-A.

When Harvey showed up on Sunday to pitch, the Mets told him of his suspension. But now they act as if they don't. A source told the Daily News, "He has some growing up to do". Harvey always loved being famous.
