UPDATE: Matt Harvey Parties Till 4 AM Before Skipping Game
UPDATE: Statement to NY Post – “I apologized for my actions and I do apologize for my actions. I am extremely embarrassed. Yes, I was out on Friday night on past curfew. I did play golf Saturday morning, and put myself in a bad place for showing up to a ballgame that is my responsibility. … I am doing everything in my power to make sure that doesn’t happen again.”
Matt Harvey continues to dig himself a deeper hole with Mets fans and the front office, as Page Six is now reporting that the New York pitcher was out partying in Manhattan until 4 a.m. on Saturday before failing to show up for his start against the Miami Marlins.
According to Page Six, Harvey partied at famous club 1Oak until 4 AM early Saturday morning , and then failed to show up at Citi Field later that day.
Sources tell Page Six that Harvey claimed it was because he had a “migraine” which insiders claim “infuriated” the Mets manager Terry Collins.
After the incident, Page Six reports that Harvey was suspended for three days, which they claim will end up costing him $82,219.
