Mets' Harvey sidelined, team won't say with what

JUPITER — Mets right-hander Matt Harvey was scratched from his final spring appearance and could miss his opening day start at Kansas City on Sunday because of an unspecified medical issue.

"It's a non-baseball medical issue we have to address," general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday. "It came up (Monday) morning, as far as I know, and there will be some follow-up tests and consultations that will take place over the next couple of days."

Harvey had an appointment with a doctor who was not an orthopedist. Manager Terry Collins emphasized the issue had nothing to do with Harvey's arm. Harvey had Tommy John surgery in 2013.

ORTIZ HONORED: The Red Sox celebrated DH David Ortiz's two decades of spring training in Fort Myers with a pregame ceremony before his final home exhibition game. Ortiz, 40, announced in November that this will be his final season.

BRAVES: Outfielder Nick Swisher, 35, was released.

DODGERS: Former Rays right-hander Jamey Wright, 41, announced his retirement after 19 seasons.

INDIANS: Rightfielder Lonnie Chisenhall will begin the season on the 15-day disabled list with an injured left wrist.

ORIOLES: Right-hander Chris Tillman will be the team's opening day starter for the third straight season.

REDS: Right-hander Raisel Iglesias will be the opening day starter against the Phillies, with right-hander Anthony DeSclafani sidelined by a strained oblique in his left side.

TWINS: Outfielder/DH Carlos Quentin was granted his release and is contemplating retirement, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. Quentin, 33, briefly retired last May before signing a minor-league deal with the Mariners.
