Matt Harvey likely to make next Mets start Friday in Milwaukee

Matt Harvey will likely make his next start Friday, the Mets announced.

Of course, this news comes following a team-issued three-game suspension for Harvey after he reportedly failed to show up to the ballpark on Saturday.

Originally the scheduled starter for Sunday’s series finale against Miami, Harvey arrived to the ballpark in the morning only to find out he had been suspended, and was sent home.

“Obviously there’s a few things he’s got to go through here,” manager Terry Collins said Monday. “Right now we’re looking probably at the end of the week. Since he was gonna pitch Sunday, probably leave him right on track and hopefully get him ready for Friday.”

Matt Harvey needs to forget about grievance and worry about image

Once a dominant force in the Mets rotation, Harvey has failed to rebound from 2016 shoulder surgery early this season.

He is just 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA in six starts, striking out fewer batters and walking more batters than he has in any of his first three full big league seasons.

Adam Wilk, who made the start in place of Harvey Sunday, was designated for assignment to make room for the recently acquired Tommy Milone, who may challenge Rafael Montero for a rotation spot.
