The day prior Harvey Day becoming a thing again, the New York Mets learned that closer Jeurys Familia has a blood cot in his shoulder.

Remember when “Harvey Day” was a big thing? That’s right, every time Matt Harvey was scheduled to pitch for the New York Mets was a landmark celebration for the organization who had very little to look forward to. 

Now, in 2017, there is no such formal day.

Noah Syndergaard assumed ace status while Harvey is either a no-show or sobbing over his girl taking snapshots with Julian Edelman. Thanks to these unique circumstances, Friday actually brings us a small showcase of “Harvey Day.”

Intelligently, the Mets scheduled to pitch Harvey on Friday, on the road in Milwaukee against the Brewers so he didn’t have to feel the wrath of the Flushing crowd during his first time back.

In other news, the injury bug just keeps on spreading as closer Jeurys Familia is now sidelined for an indefinite period of time. After blowing the save against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday at Citi Field — and outing that saw him relent four runs in the top of the ninth — it was revealed that Familia was suffering from an arterial blood cot in his right shoulder.

He’ll fly down to St. Louis and see Dr. Robert Thompson for evaluation and possible surgery plans.
