The first four pitchers to start a game for the Mets in Grapefruit League play this season combined for 7 IP and 0 ER. Steven Matz failed to record an out in the second inning and finished with a line of 1 IP, 3 H, 5 ER, 2 BB and a K, with all of the damage coming in the second inning. He left with two runners on base and both of those came around to score. There were high hopes for Matz after he had the same surgery that Jacob deGrom did prior to the 2017 season and deGrom turned in a strong year. The hope is that Matz would do the same. What do you think of this outing?
