New York Mets Pitching Ace Matt Harvey Suspended By the Team!
Matt Harvey has been suspended for three days without pay for violating club rules, Sandy Alderson announced this morning. Harvey will not start this afternoon, as scheduled. Alderson did not take questions and did not say what Harvey was suspended for.
Adam Wilk will start in Harvey’s place.
The team clarified that the suspension began yesterday, May 6th.
“Yeah, we, to be honest there was some moves made last night because we felt this might occur, that we had to protect our pitching staff a little bit,” manager Terry Collins said.
Collins also wouldn’t say what caused the suspension.
“There’s things with this job that certainly are internal that the public can’t see, and how hard it is, and this one’s a tough one,” Collins said. “So we hope to put it behind us and move forward.”
