According to a report from the Los Angeles Times, former Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is among the list of six current and former Angels to be interviewed in the Tyler Skaggs investigation.
Four of the six pitchers who were interviewed by federal agents were identified. The list includes Harvey, Andrew Heaney, Noe Ramirez, and Trevor Cahill.
The report notes that people familiar with the interviews said the players involved were not targeted for any specific reason and are not suspected of opiate usage, not have they been implicated in any crimes.
ESPN reported on Saturday that the Angels director of communications Eric Kay told investigators that he provided Skaggs, who was found dead in his Texas hotel room on July 1 with opioids and alcohol in his system, with opioids that the two allegedly abused together for years.
Kay was placed on leave by the team, and is currently in outpatient treatment, according to the LA Times.
Harvey signed a one-year deal with the Angels this past offseason, but he was designated for assignment after struggling mightily with the team. The former Met was then signed by the Oakland Athletics on a minor league deal, but did not reach the majors with the team in 2019. The right-hander elected not to use his opt-out clause and is attempting to make it back to the bigs as a reliever.
