Matt Harvey apologizes for behavior, says 'I'm extremely embarrassed'

The Mets, though, are furious Harvey didn't show up to Saturday's game and didn't hear from him. Alderson said the right-hander had been sent home, but declined further comment. Whether they would seriously consider demoting Harvey to the minors might depend on the pitcher's actions in the days ahead.

San Francisco Giants' Joe Panik throws to first base after forcing out New York Mets' Rene Rivera during the sixth inning of a baseball game, Monday, May 8, 2017, in New York. He is appealing his suspension.

It doesn't make anything Matt Harvey did acceptable, but you can't issue more of a honest apology than he did on Tuesday. He offered no public explanation for his tardiness, saying he simply "screwed up". And it wasn't just Matt Harvey.

Nene, a 15-year veteran in his first season with the Rockets, averaged 10 points and 4.7 rebounds in nine postseason games this year. "Hopefully Matt'll get back and get himself ready to go and get ready to pitch on Friday", Collins said. There is only one thing he can do, move forward, learn from his mistakes, apologize, and put it in the past.

Harvey's suspension will also be putting a dent in his pocket.

Left-hander Adam Wilk was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to face the Marlins.

NY also claimed lefty Tommy Milone off waivers from Milwaukee — he was 1-0 with one save and a 6.43 ERA. He is coming off two of the worst starts of his career, allowing 12 runs over 9 2/3 innings with eight walks in a pair of losses to Atlanta.

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. Harvey was scheduled to pitch Sunday, but will instead return to action on Friday in Milwaukee.

But Bruce, of all people, knows that in New York City things can be magnified, especially when it involves someone with the celebrity status of Harvey. CF Denard Span (sprained shoulder) is to start a rehab assignment Tuesday with Class A San Jose.

Plawecki described it as a prank by someone else.

The injuries to Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz have made Harvey all the more valuable. When he woke up he had a nasty migraine, so he texted Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen to let him know he wouldn't make it to the ballpark. Harvey reportedly told the Mets he had a bad headache, but management was fed up and/or didn't buy it, so they suspended him.

Page Six reports that the New York Mets pitcher partied at 1OAK in NYC until 4am on May 6 after going out with some friends for Cinco de Mayo, with witnesses claiming he was seen sipping on champagne, tequila and vodka.
