Matt Harvey suspended three games for unspecified violation of Mets' team rules

Alderson said the right-hander had been sent home, but declined further comment.

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will likely be back on the mound Friday. Wilk allowed six runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Harvey is under team control through the 2018 season, but with the way things are going it seems unlikely that anything fruitful will come of his remaining time in NY. Unnamed team sources told the New York Daily News that this suspension dated back to issues that had begun previous year, and former Met Paul Lo Duca called Harvey's actions "indefensible". Harvey is eligible to return from his team-imposed three-game suspension on Wednesday, but the Mets apparently have chose to push him back a couple more days.

"Obviously there's a few things he's got to go through here", manager Terry Collins said Monday. "Hopefully it gets behind us and we can move forward and we can go back to playing the way we've been this week". The decision to not show up at Citi Field has led to a three-day suspension by the Mets, and the story is getting more ridiculous by the day.

-The St. Louis Cardinals placed outfielder Jose Martinez on the 10-day disabled list due to a left groin injury. Tommy Milone or Rafael Montero will start Wednesday. May.

Collins indicated he was aware that a suspension could be on the horizon for Harvey. But what has become abundantly clear to the rest of us, because of the force and drama of the team's action on Sunday, is that the Mets don't just think Harvey suffers from migraines.




Harvey, who is recovering from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome that ended his season prematurely previous year, is 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA in six starts this season.

Harvey's return to the active roster is slated for Tuesday, at which time he will meet with club officials and be asked to address his teammates. During the 2015 World Series, Harvey skipped a team workout. He apologized for his late arrival, for which he was fined. He offered no public explanation for his tardiness, saying he simply “screwed up.”.

It's hard to acquire an everyday player for a starter, which is why I wouldn't be afraid to throw Lucas Duda into a deal with Harvey this year.

Coming off two straight playoff appearances, the Mets began this season with lofty expectations.

At this point, it is time that the two sides walk away from one another.

First baseman Lucas Duda, catcher Travis d'Arnaud and left fielder Yoenis Cespedes are all on the disabled list while shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is day-to-day with a left thumb injury.
