The Metz are calling up Steven Matz

At least that’s what a source is telling Ken Rosenthal.

Matz, 24, has posted a 2.19 ERA and 94 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A Las Vegas. He has a 2.29 ERA in 365 innings across four seasons. If the Mets do call him up, it could be to bring back that six-man rotation they used for, like, five minutes earlier this month. That didn’t go over too well, but when you add in a youngin’ like Matz to either young or rehabbing pitchers Matt HarveyJacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard, limiting workloads might not be the worst goal.
