What will become of Matt HarveyThe current status of’s career in baseball has not been disclosed.
Harvey—who testified in court in February that he provided the late Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs with drugs—has received a 60-game suspension without pay that retroactively went into effect on April 29, according to MLB.com.
Harvey was suspended by Major League Baseball for violating its Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, according to the website.
Harvey—who once played for the Los Angeles Angels and now is contracted with the Baltimore Orioles—was suspended by Major League Baseball after he provided a testimony in the trial of Eric Kay, per ESPN.
Kay, who was formerly the Los Angeles Angels communications director, was brought to trial over the July 2019 death of Skaggs—who was found in his Texas hotel room after having suffocated from his own vomit. Skaggs’ autopsy determined that he had fentanyl, oxycodone and alcohol in his system.
In February, Harvey testified in court that he had used cocaine and oxycodone himself during his career, and also provided Skaggs with oxycodone pills while on the Los Angeles Angels team, per ESPN. Harvey and four other Los Angeles Angels Alums confessed to Kay receiving opioids during the trial.
The eight-day trial ended with Kay being found guilty of two felonies (including the supply of drugs that led to Skaggs’ death).
