Mets players installed hot dog roller at Matt Harvey’s old locker?
The New York Mets may be putting Matt Harvey’s old locker to good use.
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reported on Wednesday that a hot dog roller was installed at a vacant Mets locker between those of pitcher Jacob deGrom and outfielder Jay Bruce and that it was actively being used to cook franks.
In other Mets news, someone installed a hot dog roller in the vacant locker between Jacob deGrom and Jay Bruce. There are four hot dogs currently cooking on it. Will investigate.

Many on Twitter immediately wondered if the locker was Harvey’s old one.

Amid much drama, Harvey was designated for assignment earlier this month after six years with the Mets and was ultimately traded to the Cincinnati Reds for catcher Devin Mesoraco and cash. The former All-Star is also the only player to be DFA’d by the team so far this season.
Regardless of if the empty locker was actually Harvey’s former one, the thought of the Mets slow-cooking hot dogs in their locker room as if it was a convenience store is just the latest in an increasingly bizarre season for them.
