Steven Matz (shoulder impingement) placed on 15-day IL

The Cardinals placed Steven Matz on the 15-day IL with a left shoulder impingement on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Matz left his start on Sunday after just four pitches, so it wasn’t surprising to see him hit the IL quickly. Shoulder injuries are notoriously tricky, so expect Matz to miss more than the minimum time. He’s droppable in all but NL-only formats. Matt Liberatore will likely see some additional starts in Matz’s absence.

Steven Matz leaves in the first inning

Cardinals starter Steven Matz was removed from his Sunday start against the Pirates after throwing just four pitches. Matz appeared to tweak something after delivering a fastball that was not at his normal velocity.

Fantasy Impact

It is difficult to tell exactly what was bothering Matz and what the severity might be. Expect the Cardinals to provide some additional information at the conclusion of the game.

Steven Matz strikes out seven in no-decision Tuesday against Mets

Cardinals SP Steven Matz was solid on the mound Tuesday night, allowing two runs on three hits while also striking out seven in five innings pitched, picking up a no decision in the Cardinals' 4-3 win over the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Matz has allowed three runs or less in three of his last four starts on the mound for the Cardinals, posting an impressive 21K/3BB ratio in that span. The left-hander continues to try and turn his season around, posting a 1.39 WHIP and 10.61 K/9 ratio in eight starts on the mound this season.

Steven Matz strikes out seven in loss to Orioles

Cardinals SP Steven Matz was solid on the mound Thursday, allowing three runs on seven hits while also striking out seven in 6 2/3 innings pitched in the Cardinals' 3-2 loss to the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact

Matz has now allowed three runs or less in four of his last six starts on the mound for the Cardinals. The left-hander has struggled with consistency and longevity on the mound this season, holding a 6.40 earned run average and 1.52 WHIP with 37 strikeouts in seven starts (3W-3L) this season.

Steven Matz to start today, Jordan Hicks scratched

Per Jeff Jones on Twitter, the Cardinals have scratched Jordan Hicks and moved Steven Matz’s scheduled start to today against Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact

It sounds like this move was to get Jordan Hicks an extra day of rest and to prevent Steven Matz from facing San Francisco in back to back starts. Matz allowed eight earned runs in that start against the Giants, so the move makes sense for the Cardinals to put him in a more favorable matchup. Even with the favorable matchup today, Matz has a 7.01 ERA this season and should not be on your roster.
