Mets suspend Harvey for violating team rules; Wilk to start

When Harvey showed up on Sunday morning to the game he was scheduled to start, the team informed him he had been suspended, and sent him home.

Giancarlo Stanton was surprised to see someone besides Matt Harvey on the mound for the New York Mets.

Inside the Mets' clubhouse, players milled about on what was otherwise a typical sleepy Sunday, as surprised by the suspension as those who came streaming through Citi Field's gates.

Harvey can appeal the suspension.

It told us what DIDN'T lead to Harvey getting suspended, but it didn't really explain the situation much further than that, and left plenty of questions unanswered.

After showing up at the ballpark that day, Harvey apologized for his late arrival. Harvey offered no public explanation for his tardiness, saying he simply "screwed up". The Mets' reinforced those thoughts with their decision to suspend him without pay. "We know we're going to start playing better here".

When the Mets are not mishandling injuries, they're taking goofy pictures with sex toys in the background.

According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, Harvey played golf on Saturday. "Hopefully we can move forward". It is unclear at this point what exactly Harvey did to cause this suspension, although there have been a few speculations. Noah Syndergaard was placed on the 60-day disabled list to make room for Wilk on the 40-man roster, the New York Daily News reported. The Mets claimed LHP Tommy Milone off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers. Last year, he went 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP in 17 starts before being shut down to because he had Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. He is coming off two of the worst starts of his career, allowing 12 runs over 9 2/3 innings with eight walks in a pair of losses to Atlanta.

"With Ces out and now with Cabby out, we've got to spread the wealth around and we've got to get everybody to chip in", Collins said.

Harvey is 2-2 on the season with a 5.14 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Plawecki described it as a prank. The Mets said X-rays were negative and he will have an MRI on Sunday. All-Star outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, first baseman Lucas Duda, catcher Travis d'Arnaud and third baseman David Wright are all on the DL.

"There are some good pranksters on this team", he said. He boarded a flight to NY around midnight, Pacific time, landed in NY and went straight to the field. Jose Urena carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Rene Rivera laced a leadoff single, and the Mets stranded two runners that inning when Jay Bruce flied out to left to end the inning in a 6-0 game.

Will tonight's Marlins and Mets game go over the betting total tonight when the NL East rivals square off at 7:10PM ET?

"It takes a little steam away", he said.

"We have rules that weren't adhered to, and we took a stance", Collins said.
