Steven Matz to start on Friday

2 Comments

Good news for the Mets, who could use some on the pitcher health front: Steven Matz said today that he feels great and expects to start Friday against the Phillies.

Matz has been out for over a month due to a mild shoulder strain. He’s scheduled to throw a bullpen session tomorrow. If that goes well, he’ll start Friday against the Phillies.

Matz is 9-8 with a 3.40 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 129/31 in 132.1 innings this year.
