The New York Mets have suspended Matt Harvey for three days for violating club house rules. The pitcher was supposed to pitch on Sunday against the Miami Marlins.
The Mets will not reveal the details of his suspension.
“We’ll keep it in-house, the way it’s supposed to be,” manager Terry Collins said.
Left-handed pitcher Adam Wilk will make the spot-start in place of Harvey. This will be his first MLB start with the Mets — and his first start since the 2012 season with the Detroit Tigers.
Despite “wanting to keep it in-house,” whatever Harvey did will eventually leak out. He’ll rejoin the Mets rotation later this week.
This season, Harvey is 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA in six starts. He’s struck out 20 and walked 13, while allowing 21 runs (20 earned runs) over 35 innings.
With Triple-A Las Vegas, Wilk has a 5.91 ERA in six starts. He also has 29 strikeouts and 5 walks in 32 innings.
This will be Wilk’s first MLB appearance since last season with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He appeared in one game with a 4.50 ERA in two innings.
In 2012 with the Tigers, he was 0-3 as a starter. He had an 8.18 ERA in 11 innings and gave up 11 runs in those three games.
Wilk is 0-3 with a 6.49 ERA in 9 career MLB games. He’s given up 22 runs and 19 earned runs over 26 1/3 innings with the Tigers and the Angels.
