Matt Harvey appears to be losing some allies in the New York Mets' clubhouse.

Queens was abuzz Sunday after Harvey was suspended three days by the Mets for a violation of team rules just hours before his scheduled start against the Miami Marlins. The right-hander reportedly failed to show up at Citi Field for Saturday's contest after apparently playing a round of golf that morning.

Harvey's actions drew the ire of at least one of his teammates, infielder Jose Reyes, who publicly expressed his anger with Harvey to reporters following Sunday's 7-0 shellacking at the hands of the Marlins.

"We're disappointed. We have to understand, we're employees. You have to come to your job every day," Reyes said, according to Seth Walder of the New York Daily News. "We count on him.

"Everybody knows here what the rules are. When you miss that, that's not acceptable."

Harvey is reportedly planning to file a grievance against the Mets over the suspension. The 28-year-old apparently told the team that he didn't show up for Saturday's game due to a migraine.

Journeyman pitcher Adam Wilk was called up to start in Harvey's stead Sunday, and got rocked for six of Miami's seven runs.
