Matt Harvey is set to rejoin the New York Mets' rotation Friday at Milwaukee after serving a three-day suspension for not showing up at Citi Field for a game last weekend

NEW YORK — Matt Harvey is set to rejoin the New York Mets' rotation Friday in their Major League Baseball match at Milwaukee after serving a three-day suspension for not showing up at Citi Field for a game last weekend.

"You make a mistake. You stand up, be accountable and move on. And you know what? People forget about it," Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday, a day after general manager Sandy Alderson revealed the discipline for the 28-year-old pitcher.

Harvey was sent home from the ballpark Sunday before his scheduled start against Miami, yet another flap for a pitcher fined for missing a mandatory team workout before the 2015 playoffs.

Collins said Harvey will return to the Mets on Tuesday and will have to explain what happened to his teammates. Collins said Harvey will decide "if he wants to do it in a group, which is the easiest, I always think, or if he wants to do it individually."

Collins said the easiest path forward was to keep Harvey on his regular rotation turn, which comes up Friday. The suspension is costing Harvey $84,016 of his $5,125,000 salary.
