And at any rate, are these sorts of late nights on the town and skipping games what manager Terry Collins meant when he said baseball didn't seem to be Harvey's "top priority"? "People forget about it", Collins said. Harvey's no-show led to the team suspending him for three days without pay from Saturday to Monday.
With young players in their first, second or third year of service, teams will hold the possibility of a demotion over their heads as a stick: Either you get better or we're sending you down.
His sick day earned him a three-game suspension, which will cost him $82,219 of his $5.1 million salary.
Harvey claimed to be golfing Saturday morning and called the team about a migraine later in the day to explain his absence from the clubhouse. "Sandy did it", Collins said.
Delhi Metro hikes fares by up to 66%
He said the government had told the DMRC that women and students would be adversely affected in case of the fare hike. DMRC had been pushing for a fare revision, citing increasing expenses to run the system.
Here is Matt Harvey's full opening statement, in which he apologizes.
NY is coming off a weekend in which star pitcher Noah Syndergaard was put on the 60-day disabled list because of a torn latissimus dorsi muscle and the team was embarrassed when it tweeted a photo of T.J. Rivera wearing the star-of-the-game crown in the clubhouse, which included a clearly visible sex toy in backup catcher Kevin Plawecki's locker.
"It's kind of disappointing because we like stand together as a group and as a team", infielder Jose Reyes said. "It's about our guys relaxing and having some fun".
NY also claimed lefty Tommy Milone off waivers from Milwaukee he was 1-0 with one save and a 6.43 ERA.
Zebra on the loose in Florida
Deputies arrived and helped Fish and Wildlife personnel safely corral the zebra, which is now back home with at least four others. The animal wreaked havoc across the city before being caught while running through a backyard and returned to its owner.
Wilk was brought up from Triple-A Las Vegas on short notice and little sleep. The right-hander, who resides in Manhattan and is a staple of the gossip pages, was eventually allowed to spend time in NY instead of at the team's spring training facility in Florida. He took a flight to Los Angeles, a red-eye to NY and went straight to Citi Field for his start.
The Mets could fully justify a minor league assignment by saying Harvey needs more time to come back from his injury, with the corollary message to the pitcher: Get back to doing what's needed to be in the best possible position to pitch - which includes showing up to the ballpark.
The pitcher said a private chef made him lunch, and after that he fell asleep, waking up with a migraine, the Web site reported.
"I actually felt pretty good", he said. "You savour. You never let go".
