Mets' Steven Matz: Has ditched slider this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matz is not using his slider in an effort to stay healthy, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Matz is trying to avoid strain on his left elbow by ditching an offering that requires plenty of it -- by some studies, the pitch most responsible for those types of issues, as noted by Ackert. He's relied on his fastballs (four- and two-seam/sinker), changeup and curveball on his way to a 3.60 ERA in his first three starts of the year. The southpaw's extensive injury history, which includes Tommy John surgery and a bone spur in his pitching elbow that was removed this past winter, is causing him to take new precautions. Matz gutted through a messy outing Thursday to spin a quality start. He should remain an option for many mixed-league fantasy lineups, though it'd help if he can regain the strikeout promise he's shown in previous years: He has only 14 in 20 innings so far.

Mets' Steven Matz: Issues five walks, allows two homers in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matz gave up three runs on three hits and five walks while striking out eight over six innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Thursday.

He managed to turn in a quality start in his third outing of the season, but Matz was playing with fire with five free passes and two home runs allowed. The lefty managed to work around baserunners thanks in large part to the strikeout -- his eight strikeouts exceeded his total from his first two starts combined (six). Matz lines up for a road start against the Marlins his next time out.

Mets' Steven Matz: Hit hard by Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matz (1-1) allowed four runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- while striking out four over seven innings in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Nationals.

He only made a few mistakes on the evening, throwing 66 of 100 pitches for strikes, but the Nats made the lefty pay for every one. Things won't get much easier for Matz in his next start Thursday on the road against the Dodgers.

Mets' Steven Matz: Shines in 2017 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matz (elbow) allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out two batters over seven innings in a win over the Braves in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader.

The strikeout total was low, but it goes down as a highly successful 2017 debut for Matz nonetheless. He retired 15 of the first 17 batters he faced and was efficient throughout the outing, needing 98 pitches to complete the seven frames (67 strikes). A tough test awaits Matz next week in the Nationals, but the early returns are looking promising for those who stashed the lefty as he worked his way back from an elbow injury.

Mets' Steven Matz: Will pitch Game 2 on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matz (elbow) will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Braves, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

It was confirmed earlier this week that Matz would start one of the Saturday games, and with the corresponding move of Matt Reynolds heading to Triple-A Las Vegas, Matz is set to join the roster and hit the bump for Game 2 against Atlanta. The southpaw has been out since September of last season, and is ready to roll after completing four rehab starts over the past month.
