FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: STEVEN MATZ PITCHING WITH BONE SPUR ON ELBOW

Just like with rotation-mate Noah Syndegaard, New York Mets lefty Steven Matz has been diagnosed with a bone spur in his pitching elbow.  The Mets have refused to acknowledge the bone spur in Matz, which is the same deniability they gave about Syndegaard before Thor admitted to it after his ugly outing Monday.  As far as Matz is concerned, he comes off a beating at the hands of the Atlanta Braves his last time out and he has been seen rubbing his elbow in the dugout after his last three starts.  Matz also admitted that the slider is causing him the most discomfort and that he won't be able to throw the pitch until the pain subsides.  Now the fact that Matz will be removing a prime pitch from his arsenal is a major problem for his outlook as the injury is now robbing him of his stuff.  As a result, Matz is looking like an incredibly risky pitcher to go with in any one start for the time being and surgery has not even been ruled out.  This is just another chapter in a very ugly season for the Mets and their young rotation which has bene besieged with injury and decreased stuff.  Anyone owning stock in Matz is in trouble there but hold him until we get a more firm diagnosis.
