The Mets season continues to spiral downward, as starter Steven Matz has been scratched from today’s start.

Matz took a no-hitter into the eighth inning against the Padres the last time out but he now apparently has a shoulder problem of some sort. The details of what that is exactly are not known, but the Mets should provide further updates later today.

In the meantime Seth Lugo will start against the Giants today.
