Mets Suspend Harvey for Violating Team Rules – The New York Mets have suspended right-hander Matt Harvey three days without pay for a violation of team rules. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson would not disclose Harvey’s infraction, only saying that he was sent home. Left-hander Adam Wilk was called up from Triple A to replace Harvey as the Mets’ starter Sunday against the Marlins. The news for the Mets was already negative. It was announced on Saturday that ace Noah Syndergaard will be sidelined through at least the All-Star break because of a torn muscle behind his right arm. That’s just the latest injury news. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Saturday’s game with a thumb injury suffered while diving for a ball. Right-hander Seth Lugo and left-hander Steven Matz are both recovering from elbow injuries.
Madden: Cubs’ Anderson (back) May Go To DL – Cubs starter Brett Anderson left Saturday’s game against the New York Yankees in the first inning with lower back tightness and likely will be placed on the disabled list, manager Joe Maddon said after his team’s 11-6 loss. Anderson, 29, has a history of back problems and was able to get only one batter out while giving up five runs Saturday. Over his past two starts he’s thrown a total of 1 2/3 innings while giving up 12 earned runs. Anderson said he felt something in his back while fielding a bunt by Yankees center fielder Aaron Hicks, then he threw awkwardly toward first base, bouncing the ball past Anthony Rizzo.
