"We've got about the best news we could from that situation last night". "In every occasion I've been a part of, a guy has come back and he's learned his lesson and we've moved on". Hampered by injuries, however, they've opened 14-16 against all NL East opponents. As of yesterday, Harvey was suspended for three days for violating club rules without pay. After the game, Collins delivered the good news about Cabrera.
The latest suspension comes at a bad time with Harvey coming off two of the worst starts of his career. He missed the 2014 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery and had surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome that ended his season early a year ago, when he made only 17 starts, going 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA. Luis Severino starts for the Yankees after he was charged with five runs and eight hits in 5 2/3 innings in a 7-1 loss to Toronto in his previous start Monday. "He's going to be fine, I think, because he knows what he can do and his talent is going to take over". "We will welcome Matt back when he gets back and continue moving forward". Jose Urena gets the start in the series finale and is 0-0 with a 2.35 ERA and 8 strikeouts this season.
This year, NY already has dealt with several public relations problems.
Cabrera, whose RBI double sparked a five-run first inning against fill-in starter Odrisamer Despaigne (0-1), had X-rays, which were negative. But the photographer must not have seen a sex toy in the background, sitting in catcher Kevin Plawecki's locker.
They lost not one, but two third baseman to injuries.
Of course, this is speculation, but whatever's going on in NY, it is NOT good.
New York Mets shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera hoped to avoid the disabled list after landing on his left thumb during a game last weekend.
Leave Las Vegas with the Triple-A 51s at 7 a.m. Saturday. He took a midnight flight to NY and arrived in Queens at 8:45, and then pitched roughly four hours later.
New York Mets' Curtis Granderson (3) slides past Miami Marlins relief pitcher Dustin McGowan (22) to score on a passed ball during the fifth inning of a baseball game, Saturday, May 6, 2017, in New York.
NY pounded out a total of 19 runs in the first two games of the series and scored at least five in each of its last nine contests - seven or more in all five games since the calendar turned to May.
