New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey refuses to speak with media after bullpen demotion


New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey didn’t want to speak with the media Tuesday night, after his first relief appearance since being demoted to the bullpen.

The right-hander didn’t change his tune Wednesday, either.

Asked to comment about his Tuesday performance — he allowed a run over two innings in a 6-5 win against the Cardinals — Harvey snapped back after a repeated request.

“I have nothing to say to you guys,” he said, according to the New York Post. “I don’t f—ing want to [talk].”

Asked why he wouldn’t respond to questions, Harvey said: “I don’t f—ing want to.”

Harvey lost his spot in the rotation after going 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA in four starts this year.

Manager Mickey Callaway said the Mets can’t make Harvey talk to reporters.

“We really can’t do anything about that. I think it’s his right as a player,” Callaway said, according to the Post. “The rules are such, kinda like when we have days off we can’t make them come in and work out.”
