New York Mets left-hander Steven Matz will look to stay hot on Friday when he takes the mound against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field. Matz has looked like a different pitcher in the second half and has been a serviceable option. He will face a boom or bust Philadelphia lineup Friday in a pitcher-friendly park. The lefty is worth a look as a streamer again in deeper leagues.
The New York Mets returned to Citi Field Tuesday night with a victory over the Cleveland Indians in an interleague matchup. New York native Steven Matz went 6 1/3 innings, allowing just two runs on five hits. Just one of the runs was earned, as he walked two and struck out seven. The 28-year-old tossed 98 pitches in the performance, his eighth victory of the season. This is the first of two scheduled starts this week for Matz, with his second scheduled for Sunday afternoon in a divisional showdown with the Atlanta Braves, once again at Citi Field.
New York Mets left-hander Steven Matz will look to continue his hot stretch on the mound Tuesday when he takes on the Cleveland Indians at Citi Field. Matz has posted a 3.06 ERA in his last six starts and has looked like a totally different pitcher since his demotion to the bullpen last month. Unfortunately, this is a tough matchup for the southpaw. The Indians have been swinging hot bats of late, but they are an American League team that will lose the designated hitter on Tuesday. As a result, Matz is a streaming option.
