2015 has been the best season for the Mets in a very long time. All things seemed to fall in place. But on the eve of their first playoff game, ace Matt Harvey missed a mandatory workout.
It has been rumored that he was stuck in traffic, but there’s no confirmation on that. However, Harvey is owning up to his wrongdoing.
Mets ace Matt Harvey missed a mandatory team workout Tuesday at Citi Field.
Harvey later apologized to teammates for the unexcused absence, which apparently happened because he lost track of time.
“Obviously, today was not the greatest,” Harvey said after arriving at Citi Field. “I know we had a mandatory workout. The last thing I ever want to do is not be here with my team. Basically, there’s no excuse. I screwed up. I wasn’t here. I showed up a little late. I’ve talked to [general manager] Sandy [Alderson] and I’ve talked to [manager] Terry [Collins] and my teammates and apologized to them and apologized to everybody. They understand. I’m here to get my workout in and be with the team.
