Cardinals' Steven Matz: Starting back end of doubleheader

Matz will start Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Matz has had an up-and-down season to this point. Though he has posted two quality starts in his last three outings, sandwiched in the middle was an eight-run blow up against the Giants, leaving his year-long ERA at 6.40. The 30-year-old will look to take advantage of the opportunity to face a Mets lineup that already played a game earlier in the day, and perhaps down a couple regulars.

Official: Steven Matz trade from 2021 ends in a double count-out

Steven Matz makes his Citi Field return with the St. Louis Cardinals this week which is as good of a time as any to look back at the trade that ended his New York Mets tenure. Matz was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays on January 27, 2021, for three pitchers. He had a successful year with the Blue Jays, going 14-7 with a 3.82 ERA. Now a member of the Cardinals in 2022, he returns to Citi Field 3-3 with a 6.40 ERA.

Cardinals' Steven Matz: Quality start in loss

Matz (3-3) took the loss, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out seven in 6.2 innings of a 3-2 defeat Thursday against Baltimore. After allowing a second-inning solo homer to Jorge Mateo, Matz cruised through the Baltimore lineup over the next four innings, at one point retiring 11 straight. He retired the first two batters in the seventh but then gave up a solo shot to Anthony Benboom and a single to Chris Owings and was removed. The veteran lefty allowed only one home run in his first five starts but has been tagged five times over his last two starts, spanning 8.2 innings. His next start will likely be early next week against the Mets.

Steve Cohen takes down Mets troll for fake Steven Matz info

New York Mets owner Steve Cohen wasn’t going to let a troll account take him down for some fake news regarding Steven Matz. Twitter is a wild place and New York Mets owner Steve Cohen continues to see this first hand.

Cardinals' Steven Matz: Early exit against Mets

Matz didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 10-5 win over the Mets, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out six. All the damage against the southpaw came in the second inning, but Matz still exited the game with the Cardinals ahead 8-4. Unfortunately, an elevated pitch count (97, 68 for strikes) prevented him from getting the win against his former club. Matz is now saddled with a 6.11 ERA, but his 23:5 K:BB through 17.2 innings suggests there's been more than a little bad luck involved in that mark.

Steven Matz has no grudge with Steve Cohen despite offseason tweet

ST. LOUIS — Steven Matz escaped the Mets’ clutches last offseason, leaving the team’s owner to vent his frustration on social media. Steve Cohen accused Matz’s agent of reneging on a contract agreement and called the behavior “unprofessional.” Instead of returning to the Mets after spending 2021 with the Blue Jays, the 30-year-old lefty signed with the Cardinals for $44 million over four years.

Steven Matz can singlehandedly change St. Louis Cardinals rotation

Steven Matz’s last two starts proves that he can singlehandedly change St. Louis Cardinals rotation. After a bad first outing with the Cardinals, in which he allowed seven runs in three innings, Steven Matz did not get off to the start he wanted in St. Louis. It was later revealed that he was dealing with a blister, which gave both the team and Matz optimism that he would quickly bounce back.

Cardinals vs. Reds prediction: Bet on Steven Matz in this spot

What’s in a name? An animal park in Bavaria is changing the name of one of its most popular pigs. A Russian boar named Putin will now be known as Eberhofer after 2,700 suggestions were tallied. The park is also looking to rename a jackal who fell in love, turned his back on his family and relocated to the other side of the park. With votes still pouring in the name Harry Markle has a sizable lead. Former Met Steven Matz spent one season in Toronto (or was it Buffalo, or was it Dunedin) and now the bluebird is a redbird. Matz’s debut was a disaster (seven runs, three innings) but he rebounded, blanking the Brewers over 5 ²/₃. The Cards are in Cincinnati. At 22 years old, Reds rookie Hunter Greene, is well, green, but has shown promise, allowing five runs over 10 ¹/₃. This will be Greene’s first start at home. We will back the Cards for 10 units. Our Citi Field streak is over. The Mets outhit the Giants, Carlos Carrasco outpitched Anthony DeSclafani, and the Mets won, 6-2. Still up +40 mccoveys.
