Major League notebook: Mets suspend Harvey

Share

Mets star pitcher Matt Harvey was suspended three days by the team on Sunday for an undisclosed violation of team rules, the latest hiccup for a club beset by problems on and off the field this season. The Mets are already 6.5 games behind the first-place Washington Nationals. Paul Sewald did his best to preserve the bullpen by surrendering only one run over 3.1 innings while striking out six.

"I'm hoping he's back (Monday), but he's still got some soreness there. Tried to sleep wherever I could, on the plane or sitting in the airport", said Wilk, the 29-year-old lefty, who had previous Major League Baseball stints with the Tigers and Angels. "Hopefully he gets behind us and we can move forward and go back to the way we were playing the last week", said Collins.

Wilk (0-1) was brought up from Triple-A Las Vegas and arrived at the ballpark around 8:45 a.m.

The Miami Marlins defeated the New York Mets 7-0 behind a strong performance by Jose Urena and the bullpen, which allowed just one combined hit.

It was not immediately clear whether Cabrera would join them on the disabled list. NY also claimed lefty Tommy Milone off waivers from Milwaukee - he was 1-0 with one save and a 6.43 earned-run average.

The 29-year-old lefty was no match for the prodigious power of Stanton, whose 20 home runs at Citi Field are the most at any visiting ballpark by a player since 2011. Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton did all of the damage on the scoreboard for the Fish in the loss, with Stanton hitting a solo shot while Ozuna's homer went for 2 runs. Rene Rivera led off the sixth inning with a clean single against Urena. Chen is 2-1 with a 4.33 ERA in five starts this season.

-Baltimore Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop was out for the second straight game after being hit on the right wrist with a pitch on Friday night.

"I did kind of lose it after the error at first base", he said through a translator.

Mets center fielder Curtis Granderson ran in for a sliding catch on Adeiny Hechavarria in the eighth, then ran a long distance for a backhand grab of J.T. Realmuto's drive to the warning track.

Marlins: CF Christian Yelich missed a start for the first time this season. He is likely out until the All-Star break.
