Harvey to start on Friday

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The New York Mets are expected to start Matt Harvey on Friday against the Milwaukee Brewers. He has been serving a three-day suspension after not reporting to the team on Saturday.

“You make a mistake,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “You stand up, be accountable and move on. And you know what? People forget about it.

Harvey was originally supposed to start on Sunday against the Miami Marlins. However, he was sent home from the ballpark after being informed of his suspension.

Harvey said there was a miscommunication. He was allegedly out playing golf and had a migraine headache — then did not report to the team.

This is the second-time that he has had an incident during his Mets career. During the 2015 playoffs, he missed a workout.

The Mets backed his three-day suspension to Saturday and he is expected to return to the team on Tuesday. He is expected to explain what happened to his teammates when he returns

“[Harvey will decide] if he wants to do it in a group, which is the easiest, I always think, or if he wants to do it individually,” Collins added.

Harvey lost $84,016 of his contract during his three-day suspension. He’s making $5.125 million this season.

“Matt made a mistake,” outfielder Jay Bruce said. “People make mistakes. There are team rules, and when team rules are broken there are consequences that have to be served, and obviously that’s happening.”
