NEW YORK -- Steven Matz, who hoped to skip only one start after sustaining a flexor-pronator strain in his left forearm, will instead miss multiple. The Mets have scheduled Corey Oswalt to make another start Saturday against the Marlins, ensuring that Matz will not come off the disabled list when eligible.

While Mets manager Mickey Callaway said that Matz "is going to progress and keep on progressing," he could not reveal when Matz might pitch again.

Yep. Again, the surprise will be if Matz pitches again this season.

I do think he has to try. Because even the biggest Matz fans HAVE to throw the towel in on him as a starting pitcher if he ends a third season in a row on the DL. But I donít expect we see him again until next season. History tells us thatís what we should expect.

He will be pulled in the first innings by of his first rehab start in early sept and then shut down for season

Not great, but still obviously better than Vargas and makes nothing

When he has 4-5 days in between starts
37.2 IP 36 H 17 ER 26 Ks 10 BBs 4.6 ERA

He got 7 straight starts from July to mid August and posted a 4.03 ERA
5 quality starts, on a pitch count In one , gave up 4 ER in 6 in the other .


4 IP 2ER
6 IP 3 ER
5IP 1 ER
5 IP 2 ER
6 IP 3 ER
6 IP 3 ER

Provides some depth and a ok spot starter/5th starter when Noah, Matz, Varsas and Wheeler do their annual dl stints

Our SP depth should be fairly decent next season with or without a starter signing. They have live options in the minors. Dunn, Kilome, Kay, and Peterson should all be spread around AA and AAA in upstate NY.

He's been pretty competent as a starter. His role with any major league club will just be as that back-end guy who doesn't put up great numbers and gets lit up once in awhile but will average over five innings a start and will make sure that your bullpen doesn't get destroyed. He's not a reliever, though. When he comes in after a guy who sits mid-90s I'm sure his fastballs look like batting practice to hitters, and he doesn't really have a standout secondary even though his curveball and change are both decent.

Let him compete for it with other minor-league starters. As mentioned above, he's not the ideal swing man because he hasn't been very effective out of the pen.

Can't imagine who else would be #6 unless they sign someone. Montero? Gagnon? Doubt they'll push Dunn, Kilome, or Peterson like that although those three could be in the mix by the end of the season.
