Matt Harvey was sent home from Citi Field on Sunday morning and pulled from his scheduled start having been suspended for three games by either the New York Mets front office, or manager Terry Collins.

Team officials said in announcing the suspension that they wouldn’t publicly discuss the reason for it, by FanRag Sports is reporting that it’s likely tied to his absence from the team on Saturday night. The site reports Harvey is calling it a miscommunication:

…as people close to him say he played golf early Saturday, got a headache when he returned home around 1 p.m., and advised the Mets of this issue.

The Mets called up Adam Wilk from Triple-A Las Vegas for a spot start, his first since 2012. It went about as well as you’d expect – 3.2 innings, 8 hits, 6 earned and 3 home runs.

Giancarlo Stanton had two of those blasts and the Marlins (13-17) pulled out of the New York with a 7-0 win, avoiding a sweep.

The Mets – who had won 6-of-8 coming into Sunday – fall to 14-16. They host the Giants for the start of a 3-game series on Monday (7:00).
