Adam Wilk allowed six runs while filling in for Harvey

Of course, this is speculation, but whatever's going on in NY, it is NOT good.

General manager Sandy Alderson announced Harvey's suspension on Sunday morning, reading a brief statement without taking questions.

Left-hander Adam Wilk was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas to take Harvey's roster and rotation spot.

The host Mets will look to complete a three-game sweep of the Marlins on Sunday afternoon when the two teams square off at Citi Field.

No matter why Matt Harvey was suspended, it's certainly been a messy season for the New York Mets. Although it doesn't sound as if he will need to be put on the disabled list and miss at least nine more days, Collins said the front office is still mulling it. Like I said, there were rules here that weren't adhered to and we took a stance.

Two of the top pitchers in the American League this season square off when Chris Sale (2-2, 1.38 ERA) and the Boston Red Sox face Ervin Santana (5-0, 0.66) and the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.

According to the sports site, Harvey didn't go to the ballpark Saturday, which is seemingly why he was suspended even though the Mets are keeping a tight lid on the details.


This could be one of the reasons why a supposed ideal starting rotation with Syndergaard, DeGrom, Matz, Wheeler, and Harvey will never happen.

"We're going to move past it and hopefully in a short period of time we can get back to normal", Collins said.

"It's tough. I didn't get a whole lot of sleep". The 28-year-old has been disappointing on the mound as well this season with a 5.14 ERA through his first six starts. Pitching in place of injured Wei-Yin Chen, he allowed eight runs - three earned - five hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings.

The Mets actually got a piece of good injury news Sunday.

Harvey's best season was in 2015, when he went 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA. Making his first start of the year while Edinson Volquez recovers from a blister problem, Jose Urena (1-0) and three relievers combined on a one-hitter as the Marlins snapped a three-game losing streak.

The Dominican Republic native is 1-2 with a 4.13 ERA in seven career games - three starts - against NY, including a pair of relief appearances last month.
