Major League notebook: Mets suspend Harvey

The New York Mets are doing their best to stay afloat. He opened the season on the 10-day disabled list after straining the same hamstring during the World Baseball Classic. Lucas Duda, Travis d'Arnaud, Steven Matz, Seth Lugo are also sidelined. Unlike the rest of the league, the Mets continue to hem and haw with their injured players rather than utilizing the DL and more optimally utilizing their limited roster space.

Harvey was penalized three days without pay for an undisclosed violation of team rules. The very next Sunday, Harvey is suspended and the Mets get one-hit by the Marlins, and Giancarlo Stanton gets to have batting practice against a journeyman Minor Leaguer, Adam Wilk, who had to be flown in from Albuquerque to take Harvey's place. The MRI exam of Asdrubal Cabrera's left thumb showed no ligament damage, and general manager Sandy Alderson said the shortstop is not expected to be sidelined for long. Jon Heyman is reporting that after playing golf Saturday morning, Harvey developed a migraine and did not go to the ballpark for Saturday's game; Harvey, apparently, saw the issue as a miscommunication. It confirms a previous report from Mike Puma of the New York Post.

Collins indicated that he was aware that a suspension could be on the horizon for Harvey.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that the team hopes to get Matt Harvey ready to start on Friday in Milwaukee.

Meanwhile, Buffett was asked why he's not buying Amazon shares, the billionaire investor had a simple answer. Berkshire declined to say whether that was a complete list of CEO transitions since 2016's annual meeting.

It was a tough position for Wilk to be in. He made several stops en route to NY and took an overnight flight, arriving at Citi Field straight from the airport around 8:45 a.m. He traveled across multiple time zones to make it to NY in time to start this afternoon.

In the seventh inning, Ozuna and Martin Prado recorded singles, which set up a Derek Dietrich RBI double, extending the Marlins lead to 7-0.

The grievance came after the Mets hit Harvey with a three-game, unpaid suspension for failing to appear at a game Saturday night.

We will undoubtedly learn more about what happened. The Mets seem more invested in Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom as their future over Harvey. With everything that the Mets are already dealing with, this is the last thing they needed.

Ah, but let's go back to 2015, when Harvey missed a mandatory team workout before the start of the postseason.
