Update-Harvey has ‘medical issue’

988cf862_mlbamHe’s been scratched from tomorrow’s preseason start, and that’s not all, according to Mets GM Sandy Alderson … 

Per the Great Red Satan, he may not pitch Opening Day. He may, but he may not.

Alderson said it’s not “orthopedic.” He then joshed, saying that a pulled wisdom tooth would scratch Harvey tomorrow.

Well, yes, but it wouldn’t call into question his Opening Day start. Nor would a pulled wisdom tooth possibly lead him back to seeing a New York doctor.

Alderson, beyond the joshing, had little to say. He said he hoped to have more information in a day or two and also said he couldn’t assign any level of concern to it. He did say it was a “non-baseball medical issue,” too, and that’s about it.

So, what is it? Would a tight back or a pulled muscle be considered orthopedic or not? And would it be considered non-baseball or not? Something personal? Other thoughts?

Anyway, stay tuned within the next 24-48 hours for more.

ScoutsUpdate: It appears that Harvey is fine. He’s been holding in his pee too much and it caused blood in his urine, which apparently is also a sign of cancer according to the dozen or so medical doctors that suddenly also became sports writers last night.

        1. Heh – well, my friends who served (or were served up, depending on your ideological bent) in Vietnam tell me that there were resistant strains of clap requiring specialized treatment, all collected under the rubric of “non-specific urethritis.” Who knows?


  1. Damn it, I paid 22 dollars for him! Just give him a bunch of shots, pull all his teeth, feed him a bunch of salt peter and roll his butt out there!
