According to Tim Healey of Newsday, the Mets will push Steven Matz’s start back to Saturday.
The lefty threw a bullpen session today at PETCO Park, but obviously the Mets want to be better safe than sorry, and don’t want to rush him if he’s not 100 percent.
Original report – 2:43 p.m.
Matz, 26, can be skipped or moved back due to Monday’s off day if his condition doesn’t improve.
The southpaw has had a rough season thus far, going 1-2 with a 4.98 ERA in five games started.
