Matt Harvey was reportedly “pissed” about his demotion to the bullpen and he is not prepared to talk about it.
When reporters requested the previous ace about his bullpen debut Tuesday towards the Cardinals, Harvey refused to remark.
Nevertheless, when he was pressed additional on why he would not make a press release, Harvey snapped.
“I’ve nothing to say to you guys,” Harvey stated. “I do not f— want to (talk).”
Harvey’s demotion got here after a 12-four loss to the Braves over the weekend, which dropped him to an zero-2 document. Towards Atlanta he allowed six runs on eight hits, strolling one and putting out 4 in six innings.
Throughout his efficiency Tuesday, Harvey did not impress both. He got here within the backside of the fifth with the sport tied at 4 and gave up again-to-again doubles. He pitched a scoreless sixth inning and the Mets ultimately gained 6-5, however it wasn’t the most effective outing to get him again within the beginning rotation.
