Matt Harvey likely to file a grievance against Mets over suspension

General manager Sandy Alderson announced the suspension Sunday in a brief statement before the game, shortly before Harvey was scheduled to start against Miami.

Its not the first time Harvey has been punished by the Mets for his behaviour.

Maybe Harvey can start gaining back some of the locker room respect if he addresses the team upon his return from suspension. "I'm sorry, we aren't going to get into it". Or if he wants to do it individually, he can do that.

Now? Given what has happened, not so much. Wilk, taking one for the team, got lit up, on a weekend when the Mets officially became fed up with Harvey.

Harvey underwent Tommy John surgery in October 2013 that cost him all of 2014, when he knocked heads with the Mets over where he would rehab. Harvey was then instructed in a text message to report to the ballpark and receive treatment.


April 27, 2017; New York City, NY, USA; New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey (33) delivers a pitch against the Atlanta Braves in the second inning at Citi Field. If he continues to pull of stunts like this, Harvey might be shown the door. He apologized for his late arrival, for which he was fined. The suspension is costing Harvey $84,016 of his $5,125,000 salary.

Harvey's team claims he had a bad headache on Saturday and communicated that to the Mets before not showing up at the park.

The union could file a grievance for Harvey, to try to recoup the lost salary, but he has treaded into this territory before. The Mets seem more invested in Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom as their future over Harvey.

In his first season after having a rib removed during surgery to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, the 28-year-old Harvey is 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA in six starts covering 35 innings. Like I said, there were rules here that weren't adhered to and we took a stance. "We're not the enemy". He went 1-0 with 6.43 ERA in six games (three starts) and allowed 29 hits and six homers in 21 innings.

You know who knows how we reached this point with the Mets and Matt Harvey, once the most exciting pitcher the team had had since Dwight Gooden? "He's just a big guy, a big figure on our club". To the contrary, he loved being an ace in 2013, enjoying celebrity status in NY and the mega-contract that he thought was right around the corner. "All together with the help of his teammates and the help of his coaching staff we'll move on and hopefully in two months we're back to where we were with him pitching well".
