Matt Harvey Reportedly 'Likely' to Start Friday vs. Brewers After Suspension

He didn't play on Sunday, and the Mets had him test the thumb on Monday, leading them to believe a stint on the DL is unnecessary, per Zach Braziller of the New York Post.

The Mets kicked off their Sunday afternoon by announcing that Matt Harvey would not make his scheduled start against the Marlins, and would be suspended for three days. Alderson said the righthander was sent home but declined further comment. He had multiple at-bats in an extended spring training game Saturday in Port St. Lucie, Florida, and went 0-for-4 Sunday as the DH for Class A St. Lucie.

Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Monday that Matt Harvey will rejoin the rotation on Friday in Milwaukee. The three-day suspension removes Harvey from the 25-man roster. He opened the season on the 10-day disabled list after straining the same hamstring during the World Baseball Classic. NY also claimed lefty Tommy Milone off waivers from Milwaukee - he was 1-0 with one save and a 6.43 earned-run average. Rob Zastryzny was optioned to Chicago's top farm club.

Maybe Harvey can start gaining back some of the locker room respect if he addresses the team upon his return from suspension. This will be Urena's first start since September 28 of last season, when he faced the Mets and took the loss after giving up five runs over five innings as the Marlins fell 5-2. Syndergaard became Thor, the new comic book star of the Mets staff, after coming along to throw even harder than Harvey, the previous comic book hero, had.

"There were some moves made last night because we felt this might occur", he said. Someone with Harvey's interest in mind says it was a "communication" issue, but the Mets are fed up either way. He missed a mandatory workout on the eve of the 2015 playoffs, later apologizing to teammates and explaining that he had no excuse. The 28-year-old right-hander has a 5.14 ERA in six starts.

The website says there are no refunds or exchanges, a risky proposition for a shoe people can't try on before they order. When asked if he would buy Ball's $500 shoes for his kids, Brown laughed, then laughed some more.

Steady shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Saturdays game with an injured left thumb, but the Mets got some good news Sunday when an MRI showed no tear.

Just ask Giancarlo Stanton and the Marlins, who went to town on Harvey's replacement in a 7-0 victory over the Mets.

Wilk gave up six runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Plawecki said the toy was gone Saturday and he did not know what happened to it.

Harvey, though, did not respond to initial texts from club officials seeking to find him on Saturday and did not reach out to them until after he was supposed to be at the park, sources said.
