Unnamed team sources told the New York Daily News that this suspension dated back to issues that had begun previous year, and former Met Paul Lo Duca called Harvey's actions "indefensible". He traveled a ton just to make it there in time for the game, arriving at about 8:45 am he said on the postgame. In his first big league game since 2015, the lefty was hit hard, giving up six runs and eight hits in 32/3 innings.
As for why Harvey was suspended, the Mets have only said it was for a "compilation of issues" since last season.
"I'm hoping he's back (Monday), but he's still got some soreness there".
Urena, manager Don Mattingly and A.J. Ellis said a possible combined no-hitter wasn't on their mind when Urena - making his first start of the season in place of injured Edinson Volquez - threw just 47 pitches and allowed one baserunner (via a hit by pitch) in the first five innings. In the third, he launched a solo shot measured at 468 feet (see full recap).
Harvey was suspended three days without pay for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
"We're disappointed. We have to understand, we're employees". Two of the four seasons before this one ended with surgeries, one involving the ulnar nerve in his pitching elbow, the other for something called thoracic outlet syndrome, which is a problem involving nerves near the neck and shoulder that can produce tingling in the arm or hand.
"I actually felt pretty good", he said.

He also said rising health care costs, rather than high taxes, were the biggest drag on US businesses. Had the new law been in effect, Buffett said his taxes would have gone down 17 percent a year ago .

Later, after team trainer Ray Ramirez was unsuccessful in reaching Harvey to check on his condition, the Mets dispatched two team security officials to the pitcher's Greenwich Village apartment to ensure he didn't need emergency medical assistance.
Marlins RHP Odrisamer Despaigne was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans before the game. "Same hamstring, different spot", Mattingly said.
NOTES: Marlins INF Miguel Rojas started at third base but left after the first inning with a jammed right thumb. Both Prado and Rojas are day-to-day.
An MRI revealed that Asdrubal Cabrera did not suffer ligament damage, and the Mets shortstop is day-to-day with a sprained left thumb.
Marlins: Begin a nine-game homestand Monday night with a three-game series vs. St. Louis. This will be Urena's first start since September 28 of last season, when he faced the Mets and took the loss after giving up five runs over five innings as the Marlins fell 5-2. Adam Conley is scheduled to take the mound for Miami versus Cardinals ace Carlos Martinez.
