An MRI showed that Mets pitcher Steven Matz has not suffered any structural damage to his forearm, WFAN baseball insider Jon Heyman reported Thursday.
Matz only recorded two outs against Washington, giving up seven runs on eight hits en route to the worst loss in Mets history.
For the season, the 27-year-old pitcher is 5-9 with a 4.35 ERA.
Matz battled elbow problems last season before undergoing season-ending surgery in August. He also underwent Tommy John surgery when he was in the minor leagues.
