Harvey suspended, Stanton hits 2 HRs, Marlins beat Mets 7-0

They are getting crushed by injuries, as stars such as Yoenis Cespedes and Noah Syndergaard headline their disabled list. When they're not desperately looking for healthy pitchers, they're suspending them. It now just slid from bad to worse thanks to Matt Harvey.

An All-Star in 2013 who helped the Mets reach the World Series in 2015, Harvey has not been the same pitcher since then.

"Pretty tough situation to put him in, but it's what we had to do", Collins said.

Even when they win, they lose.

Stanton extended Miami's lead in the third inning after recording his second home run of the game. Volquez is 0-4 with a 4.71 ERA in six starts this season.

Duda posted a.238/.360/.571 slash line with four home runs in 13 games before suffering a hyperextended left elbow April 19 as he stretched for a throw and was run into by Philadelphia's Cesar Hernandez. In his first big league game since 2015, the lefty was hit hard, giving up six runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings. Of course, by the time Collins did come and get Harvey, he had given up a hit and a walk and the Royals were on their way to tying the game before winning it, and the Series, in extra innings. Chen is 2-1 with a 4.33 ERA in five starts this season. The team is searching for a reliable fifth starter until Seth Lugo or Steven Matz returns. His ERA leaped from 2.55 to 5.66.

Had Urena gotten through the sixth inning unscathed, Mattingly nearly surely would have had to pull a pitcher with a no-hitter intact for the third time this season.

Asdrubal Cabrera tried for a diving stop in the shortstop hole, landed on his left thumb and rolled onto his back, grimacing.

"He's a true professional", outfielder Jay Bruce said. The Mets could have fined him for that alone.

Harvey is said to have answered his own door in his pajamas, and word from people who've spoken to him is that the Mets emissaries weren't doctors or caretakers but rather people who quizzed him about about what was going on with him. Syndergaard initially missed a start with what the Mets said was biceps and shoulder discomfort and then made his next start against Washington after refusing to undergo an MRI. It was the seventh straight game in which a Mets pitcher failed to pitch six innings, a stretch in which NY (14-15 overall) has gone 5-2 thanks to a robust lineup that has churned out 59 runs. But what has become abundantly clear to the rest of us, because of the force and drama of the team's action on Sunday, is that the Mets don't just think Harvey suffers from migraines.

"It's not like this comes up once a month, once a season, once a decade, it comes up all the time".
