Steven Matz tosses quality start in no-decision Thursday

Mets starter Steven Matz allowed one earned run on 10 hits and two walks while striking out seven over six innings in a no-decision against the Nationals on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Matz managed to limit the damage on Thursday despite allowing 12 baserunners in six innings. He now has three quality starts in his last five after failing to get an out in a start against the Phillies on April 16, a sign that he is trending in the right direction. He will take a 3.63 ERA into his next start against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Steven Matz takes third loss Saturday

Mets starter Steven Matz allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six over 3 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Miami Marlins. The loss drops him to 3-3 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

Considering the Mets were one-hit by the Marlins on Saturday, Matz did not get much offensive support in his first start since returning from the injured list. He'll take a 3.96 ERA into his next start against the Washington Nationals at home.

Steven Matz (forearm) will return on Saturday versus Marlins

Steven Matz (forearm) will pitch on Saturday in Miami.

Fantasy Impact

Matz has missed the past week and a half with nerve discomfort in his left forearm. It's a nice matchup so fantasy owners can consider starting him. As with any pitch coming off injury, however, there's always a chance of re-injury.

Steven Matz (forearm) could return this weekend

Mets manager Mickey Callaway says Steven Matz (forearm) could return this weekend in Miami.

Fantasy Impact

Callaway will speak with Matz before coming up with an exact plan. The 27-year-old threw a bullpen on Wednesday and reportedly felt good. Fantasy owners probably don't want to start him right away, assuming he comes back this weekend.

Steven Matz (forearm) set for bullpen session

Matz will throw a bullpen session Saturday to determine whether he can return from the 10-day injured list Thursday against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Impact

Matz is dealing with radial nerve discomfort but is expected to return to the rotation next week. The 27-year-old is 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA and 32 strikeouts over 35 innings; you could be excused for wanting to exercise caution in his first start back, but you can fire him up anytime after that.
