Matt Harvey Reportedly Files Grievance Against The Mets

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 and Syndergaard are not almost in the class of Kershaw and Scherzer, but they sure carry themselves as if they are big shots - Syndergaard, at one point during his MRI controversy, openly berated Mets longtime PR man Jay Horwitz for failing to protect him from reporters who attempted to question him about his status.

New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey was suspended three days without pay by the team for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

This is how fast things change, no matter how much fastball you have. Collins said that Wednesday was still wide open even though the club has announced Rafael Montero as the starter.

It's not the first time Harvey has been punished by the Mets for his behavior.

Rosenthal tweeted an appeal "would be based upon whether three-game suspension is appropriate given facts and circumstances of case".

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

The team said the suspension started on Saturday, meaning he'll be eligible to pitch on Tuesday.

But there also came word that Harvey played golf earlier Saturday, before the migraine hit. But now they act as if they don't.

Harvey, who is coming back from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery performed a year ago that ended his season last July, is now 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA in six starts.

At Las Vegas this season, Wilk was 2-3 with a 5.91 ERA in six starts. This situation might get uglier before it gets better, but as of now, it looks like Harvey should make his next scheduled start.

The Mets are not blameless in all this - among other things, they routinely give off the vibe that the inmates are running the asylum. Now Noah Syndergaard, who decided he didn't need an MRI the week before last, is on the disabled list for months because of a partially torn lat muscle.

If Harvey were performing like the star that captivated Mets fans from 2013-2015, this wouldn't be a talking point.

Poor Wilk got welcomed very rudely.

Seeing as how Cabrera's injury is not as bad as it seems, it makes more sense to get a guy like Cecchini to fill in as he's already had experience playing in the bigs, and he's not considered as big of a prospect as Rosario is.
