Mets | Steven Matz shuts down Frisco

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 22:54:28 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz scattered seven hits and three walks over six scoreless innings with four strikeouts in a win Friday, April 29, against the San Francisco Giants to move to 3-1.

Fantasy Tip: Matz was blasted for seven runs in just 1 2/3 innings in his first start of the season April 11, but he is 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA in three outings since. He has re-emerged as a must-start in NL-only leagues, most mixed formats and DFS play.

Mets | Steven Matz fans eight

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 19:13:42 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz allowed two runs on nine hits and struck out eight over 6 1/3 innings in a win over the Atlanta Braves Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Since a disastrous opening start, Matz has bounced back by allowing two runs and striking out 17 over 13 1/3 innings in his last two outings. He should be in for a strong season.

Mets | Steven Matz silences Cleveland

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 13:42:27 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz bounced back from a horrendous season debut with the finest outing of his young career on Sunday, April 17, limiting the Cleveland Indians to three hits while striking out a career-high nine over seven scoreless frames.

Fantasy Tip: And that is how a pitcher knocks off more than 30 points off his ERA in one start. Matz was tagged for seven runs in 1 2/3 innings Monday, but Sunday's performance is much more in line with what fantasy owners should expect from him going forward. He is a recommended start against the Atlanta Braves next Saturday.

Mets | Steven Matz eaten alive by Fish

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 23:05:01 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz allowed seven earned runs, six hits and two walks with a strikeout in just 1 2/3 innings in a loss against the Miami Marlins Monday, April 11.

Fantasy Tip: Matz threw just 35 of his 59 pitches for strikes. He went 4-0 with a 2.27 ERA in six regular season starts in 2015, so this was his first-career regular season setback. Don't give up on him just yet, but he will need to turn it around soon.

Mets | Steven Matz with impressive outing

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 16:43:14 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz tossed five no-hit innings in his final spring outing Friday, April 1, against the Chicago Cubs. He isn't scheduled to start again until next Sunday against the Philadelphia Phillies. Matz limited the Cubs and Washington Nationals this spring to just a run and one hit in 9 2/3 innings his last two Grapefruit League outings but surrendered six walks.

Fantasy Tip: Matz didn't miss a beat in his first taste of the majors last year, going 4-0 with a 2.27 ERA in 36 innings, and although he's overshadowed by the other young arms ahead of him in the rotation, he has just as much upside and is a popular pick in the later rounds to round out a fantasy staff.

Mets | Steven Matz wants to improve from stretch

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 12:06:22 -0800

New York Mets SP Steven Matz said he would like to pitch out of the stretch better in 2016. "It feels like I can get in a groove for a few innings out of my windup. And then once I pitch out of the stretch, I may lose my stuff a little bit. So I just want to try to be more consistent out of my stretch as well."

Fantasy Tip: Assuming Matz can shake the injury bug that hindered him in 2015, he stands to have an excellent season as an end-of-the-rotation arm for your fantasy roster. He posted a 2.27 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP with 34 strikeouts over 35 2/3 innings last season as a preview of what is to come, and Matz should be targeted as an upside candidate in the later middle rounds of drafts.

Mets | N.Y. unlikely to trade aces

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 11:53:11 -0800

New York Mets SPs Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz are unlikely to be traded, according to general manager Sandy Alderson. "I can't see it happening," Alderson said. "You never know what comes up. But I think it's unlikely."

Fantasy Tip: All four of these young starters for the Mets will be highly valuable to fantasy owners next season, and all four will come off the board in the early rounds of drafts.

Sat, 31 Oct 2015 11:43:34 -0700

New York Mets SP Steven Matz is expected to throw 90 to 95 pitches in Game 4 of the World Series Saturday, Oct. 31, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised to see Bartolo Colon throw several innings of long relief if Matz is unable to pitch deep into Game 4.

Mets | Matt Harvey to start Game 1

Sat, 24 Oct 2015 13:26:33 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey will start Game 1 of the World Series against the Kansas City Royals. He'll be followed by SP Jacob deGrom, SP Noah Syndergaard and SP Steven Matz.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey had a good season a full year from Tommy John surgery and should be poised to build on it next season. He'll be one of the top few SP options in drafts.
