The Mets lost to the Miami Marlins, 7-0.
Here's what happened, according to Matt Harvey's team. Stanton's solo shot in the second was his 18th at Citi Field, five more than any other visiting player.
Matt Harvey has been suspended for three days without pay for violation of club rules. The Marlins learned of the move at 11:45 a.m. and had little to no time to prepare for the replacement.
Two innings later, Wilk again went down and in to Stanton - this time with a curveball - and Stanton again went deep to left, this time faster and farther off the windows of the restaurant in left.
Left-hander Adam Wilk was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to face the Marlins. He is hitting.313 with a home run and four RBIs in 20 games, ranking among National League rookie leaders in batting average.
Harvey was sent home from the ballpark Sunday before his scheduled start against Miami, yet another flap for a pitcher fined for missing a mandatory team workout before the 2015 playoffs. "We're going to keep it in-house", said Collins at this morning's press conference, before adding, "Sometimes, you have to make tough decisions, and this is one of them".
Amazon to Build Homeless Shelter in Seattle
Amazon will donate over 47,000 square feet in the downtown building for a shelter for homeless women, children and families. In the meantime, the Mary's Place residents will move to another temporary shelter next door until the new one opens.
"With Ces out and now with Cabby out, we've got to spread the wealth around and we've got to get everybody to chip in", Collins said. In the third, he launched a solo shot off the glass window of the Porsche Grille, a shot measured at 468 feet for his 10th homer of the year.
"We're not going into in-depth".
The Mets managed only one hit off Urena and three Marlins relievers. T.J. Rivera walked (!) with two outs to bring Jay Bruce to the plate with a chance to cut the lead in half, but a line out to Marcell Ozuna in left ended the Mets' only real threat of the game.
The New York Mets are not a baseball team any longer, but are now a circus. Adeiny Hechavarria later homered off Mets reliever Paul Sewald. Duda went 0-for-4 in an extended spring training game Sunday. Reliever Brian Ellington was recalled. Sunday, he was transferred to the 60-day disables list. "Same hamstring, different spot", Mattingly said. Both Prado and Rojas are day-to-day.
Asdrubal Cabrera tried for a diving stop in the shortstop hole, landed on his left thumb and rolled onto his back, grimacing.
