Mets says Harvey will return to mound Friday at Milwaukee

Mets says Harvey will return to mound Friday at Milwaukee

This is not the first off-field drama involving Harvey, who appeared to be New York's next big sports star when he started for the National League in the All-Star Game at Citi Field and earned the nickname "The Dark Knight of Gotham".

Everything about the Mets feels out of control today, with the rash of injuries, the Nationals breaking away in the East and now the swift and stunning suspension of Matt Harvey, the franchise's onetime prince gone rogue.

With the Mets trying to salvage the early part of their season, they needed Harvey in the rotation.

Harvey gave a positive analysis after his last start. An anonymous team source has since told the Daily News that Harvey "has some growing up to do". Harvey was suspended by the Mets for an undisclosed violation of team rules. He missed a mandatory team workout before the 2015 playoffs and was fined. Trout also missed games Saturday and Thursday.

So far, Harvey's season has been inconsistent. That incident had people questioning where Harvey's motives lied; being with the Mets or his own self.

Collins said he expects Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, to challenge the discipline. The two sides got into it over how much Harvey was being used during the team's run in the second half. The Mets weren't happy then, but they were on their way to beating the Dodgers and then sweeping the Cubs in the NL Championship Series and coming as close as they did to taking the World Series back to Kansas City.

The incident in '15 and the one over the weekend are Harvey's known transgressions. Keep an eye on this developing situation going forward. There really might be only one logical solution.

Sunday's development continues just a roller coaster of events that have happened this season, let alone last couple weeks.

But Mets officials are more concerned with getting Harvey on track than a possible legal battle. Most famous 31-30 pitcher around.

But Harvey's 5.14 ERA isn't exactly a must-need right now for teams.

Meanwhile, Harvey is not taking the suspension quietly. They don't want what they see as Harvey's bad attitude rubbing off on the rest of the team. Jacob deGrom, then, goes back to being the Mets No. 1 starter. But the Mets figured Matt Harvey into their plans. "I'm just going to leave it where he's most comfortable because we've got to get this behind us, so however he wants to go about it to do that, I'll sign on for that".

Right-hander Dan Straily was lifted after 5 1/3 no-hit innings against the Mets on April 16, when NY didn't get its first hit until the eighth, and right-hander Wei-Yin Chen exited after seven no-hit innings against the Seattle Mariners two days later, when the Mariners finally got a hit in the ninth.
