Matt Harvey has been suspended for three games without pay for violating club rules, Sandy Alderson announced Sunday. Harvey will not start Sunday, as scheduled. Alderson did not take questions and did not say what Harvey was suspended for.
Adam Wilk will start in Harvey’s place.
The team clarified that the suspension began on May 6.
“Yeah, we, to be honest there was some moves made last night because we felt this might occur, that we had to protect our pitching staff a little bit,” manager Terry Collins said.
Collins also wouldn’t say exactly what Harvey was suspended for.
“There’s things with this job that certainly are internal that the public can’t see, and how hard it is, and this one’s a tough one,” Collins said. “So we hope to put it behind us and move forward.”
