Major League notebook: Mets suspend Harvey

There are a lot of unanswered questions, but the Mets told the media the suspension started Saturday (and they called up Adam Wilk from Las Vegas, and told him of his assignment on Saturday so he could come from Albuquerque).

On Mets Twitter (a bad place no person should ever visit), speculation was running rampant that the suspension might have had something to do with Harvey's potential involvement in the appearance of an enormous dildo in the background of picture of utility player T.J. Rivera celebrating being named player of the game on Friday night.

Given their crowded disabled list, the New York Mets are bracing for the worst. Not that the Miami slugger let a last-minute pitching change affect his success at Citi Field.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson would not disclose Harvey's infraction, only saying that he was sent home.

Oil Prices Fall Further As U.S. Rig Count Inches Higher
Domestic drillers have added rigs nearly every week this year, hoping to take advantage of stable oil prices near USD50 a barrel. Shares of oil and gas companies ticked down as oil futures slipped below the $50-per-barrel level, hurt by renewed glut fears.

The right-hander received a three-day ban after violating undisclosed team policies and was forced to skip his start on Sunday. His last start in the majors was in 2012 with the Detroit Tigers. In his first big league game since 2015, the lefty was hit hard, giving up six runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings.

"The guys have been playing very, very well, and then all of a sudden there's something that's thrown into the mix that no one in that room has any control over, yeah, it takes a little steam away", Collins said.

"I just hope that (Harvey) is fine and that he comes back ready to pitch and ready to help us win games", outfielder Jay Bruce said.

"We'll keep it in-house, the way it's supposed to be", manager Terry Collins said. In the third, Stanton added a solo shot, a laser to left that smashed off the glass in front of the second deck auxiliary press box.
