Mets Suspend Matt Harvey for Three Games

By Paul DiSclafani

Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson surprised fans and media alike, announcing that the Mets have suspended Matt Harvey for three games for a violation of team rules.

“Matt Harvey has been suspended for three days without pay for a violation of team rules and has been sent home,” Anderson said.

Alderson would not disclose the nature of the violation.  Terry Collins would only say that the Mets were “keeping it in-house”.

Adam Wilk was called up from AAA Las Vegas to take Harvey’s spot in today’s game against the Miami Marlins.

On Friday, a picture of TJ Rivera was published by the Mets on their Social Media pages of him smiling and wearing the “crown” as the Mets player of the game.  In the background, there appeared to be a large, black dildo in the locker of teammate Kevin Plawecki.  The photo was immediately removed, cropped and reposted.  Plawecki insisted he was innocent and had no idea how it got there or, more importantly, who might have put it there.

Maybe the Mets found out and then suspended Harvey?  It’s a three game suspension, so Harvey will miss only one start no matter what the reason.
