      Mets pitcher Steven Matz will start Game 4 of World Series

      Mets pitcher Steven Matz will start Game 4 of the World Series versus the Royals on Saturday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Matz will follow Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard in the Mets' four-man rotation, from which manager Terry Collins won't deviate. Consequently, Matz may make his sole appearance of the season-ending series in Game 4. In two starts (one loss) this postseason, he's been hit and miss, yielding four runs on 10 hits and four walks while striking out eight in 9.2 innings.

      Mets SP Steven Matz good to go for NLDS Game 4

      Rookie left-hander Steven Matz (back) has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for the Mets in Game 4 of the NLDS Tuesday against the Dodgers. Matz has not pitched since Sept. 24 due to a sore back, but he will get back on the bump Tuesday night as the Mets try to clinch their opening-round series. Both Matz and the Mets hitters will have their work cut out for them squaring off against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.

      New York Mets' Steven Matz Felt fine after instructional league outing, status uncertain for Game 4

      Matz said his back felt fine after an 80-pitch outing during an instructional league game Thursday, but his status with the Mets during the playoffs is still up in the air, Jon Santucci of the Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers reports. It certainly seems like Matz will rejoin the Mets and start Game 4 of the NLDS after multiple reports suggested the 24-year-old was in mid-season form, however nothing official has been announced as of yet. That being said, his status with the club should be decided sometime in the coming days.

      Mets SP Steven Matz to throw simulated game Thursday

      Mets starting pitcher Steven Matz, who is slated to throw a 90-95 pitch simulated game Thursday, said that the tightness behind his right shoulder blade was "feeling better," the NY Daily News reports. Matz, who was scratched from his final regular season start due to the injury, completed a bullpen session Tuesday at Citi Field without incident. If he makes through Thursday's sim game with no ill-effects and shows good command and stuff, he is likely to make the Mets' NLDS roster as the Game 4 starter.

      Mets SP Steven Matz getting closer to being on NLDS roster

      Mets starting pitcher Steven Matz (side) completed a bullpen session Tuesday at Citi Field, MLB.com reports. "I think we've been encouraged over the last couple of days," general manager Sandy Alderson said. "Things have improved. Certainly, today was a step forward." Now that the bullpen session is behind him, Matz has just one more hurdle to clear -- a simulated game Thursday -- to solidify his spot on the NLDS roster. If Matz makes it through the live session unscathed, he will likely start Game 4 against the Dodgers on Oct. 13. Sean Gilmartin would likely make the roster if Matz is deemed unavailable, while Jacob deGrom would be an option to start Game 4 on short rest.
