Mets starter Matt Harvey admitted being out late over the weekend, the reason for not showing up to a game the following day.
“As I just did with my teammates and my coaches, I apologized for my actions and I do apologize for my actions,” Harvey said Tuesday in a press conference at Citi Field, his first comments since his weekend suspension.
The team suspended Harvey three days without pay for not reporting for Saturday’s game against the Marlins. He was not the scheduled starter but he missed his turn Sunday because of the suspension.
“I think people make mistakes. I think I’ve made another mistake,” Harvey said.
Reports said Harvey texted the team late Saturday afternoon, saying he was suffering from a migraine after playing a round of golf earlier in the day. The team reportedly sent security to his apartment Saturday night to check on him.
The New York Post reported that Harvey was out drinking with friends until 4 a.m. Saturday.
Despite the controversy, it was an impressive weekend for Pham, who was called up Cheap Football Jerseys From China from Triple-A Memphis to make his season debut Friday. He went 6 for 12 with three home runs and five RBIs in the three-game series. After the sweep, the Cardinals (16-14) are just half a game back of the Reds (17-14) in the National League Central and have won seven of their last 10.
The NL Central looks like it might be the most competitive division baseball this season with just three games separating first place from last place.
