Pitching Matchup to Watch 5/9/16

Boy, this is rough. Not a lot of fun matchups. The one that intrigues me most is:

Steven Matz (4-1, 2.83 ERA) vs Scott Kazmir (2-2, 5.68)

Matz has been truly terrific this year. He has a 2.79 xFIP. Could he be the FOURTH homegrown ace for the Mets? Good Lord...

As for Kazmir, he hasn't been great results-wise, but he hasn't pitched nearly as poorly as his ERA would indicate: he has a 3.77 SIERA. Besides, it's a thin Monday schedule and there aren't a lot of options.
