Mets Minors: Steven Matz Update, Instructional League Roster Set, Las Vegas 51′s Make It Official
Matz is not on the official instructs roster. However, he is in St. Lucie and on a throwing program. The lefty was shut down at the end of July with discomfort in his shoulder area, but the Mets’ doctors did not believe his injury was “severe.” Matz lit up Appalachian League radar guns with mid-high 90s gas, touching 98 on his way to a 1.55 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 29 innings.
The Las Vegas 51′s have officially revamped their official site to reflect their new affiliation with the New York Mets. There were some rumors that a name change might be in the offing, but that’s not happening.
It looks like most of the short-season minor leaguers are heading to Port St. Lucie. Here is the official Mets Instructional League Roster:
I’m actually glad to see Wilmer Flores is getting some much needed rest. However, I wonder if he’ll be playing any Winter League Ball again this offseason.
