Tyler Matzek had his start pushed back because of rain and injury. He did himself no favors as he walked 3 straight batters in the first inning and the first 2 batters of the second inning in a 13-7 loss against the Diamondbacks. He only lasted 2 innings giving up 4 runs on 3 hits and 6 walks.
The walk/strikeout ratio for Matzek is terrible right now. In 22 innings he has 19 walks and only 15 Ks. He is a pitch-to-contact thrower. If he is missing the plate he is ineffective. Stay away.
