Rockies' Tyler Matzek issues six walks in no-decision vs. San Diego
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek endured some command issues and was unable to factor into the decision Tuesday night at home against San Diego.
Matzek allowed a solo home run to Clint Barmes and a run-scoring single to Matt Kemp in the third inning for his only blemishes of the evening. He was charged with two earned runs on four hits and six walks while striking out three over five innings of a 7-6 defeat. Of his 85 pitches, 44 were strikes.
Matzek has allowed only four earned runs over his first 15 innings pitched in three starts. He will look to get back on track and pick up his second win of the season Sunday at home against San Francisco. Matzek allowed one earned run over six innings of work against the Giants on April 15.

Tyler Matzek goes four innings in Rockies' start
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) Tyler Matzek went four innings and earned a no decision in the Rockies' 5-1 win over the Cubs on Friday.
Matzek allowed one run on four hits, walking three and striking out four. Matzek hit two batters and threw a wild pitch. Forty of his 84 pitches were strikes.
"I just couldn't find the heater," Matzek said, per the Denver Post. "I had to rely on the slider and and off-speed pitches. When that happens, I'm not going to go deep into a game. I just have to fight to stay out there as long as I can. I just wasn't aggressive with (my fastball) and I wasn't pounding inside with it."
Matzek also doubled and scored at the plate.
Matzek's next start will be Wednesday at the Giants and Tim Lincecum.
Rockies' Tyler Matzek allows two earned runs in four innings
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek surrendered two earned runs on four hits and two walks in four innings while striking out two in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Giants.
"I made a few mistakes with the slider, but that's a day-to-day kind of thing," Matzek said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I don't feel it's a tendency or anything. The changeup is pretty good, the fastball I was able to move it around in the zone and the curveball was where it always is."
It was the last Cactus League start of the spring for Matzek, who has posted a 6.00 ERA and 9:6 K:BB ratio in 12 innings. The team announced Tuesday that Matzek will start the team's home opener April 10 against the Cubs, the Denver Post reports.
"I’m excited. It’s going to be a great game. It’s a huge opportunity," Matzek said. "Not many guys can say they started a home-opener. I just want to start the season off at home with a 'W.' I’ll give it my all."
Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek battles control issues Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek threw 3 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on three hits. The young pitcher also hit two batters and walked one. He felt he was pressing a bit, reports MLB.com.
"I was just rushing a little bit, especially in that third inning," Matzek said. "I wasn't getting extension on that slider, threw it up and got hurt a couple of times. I've got to stay back and really extend on that fastball and slider."

2015 MLB Opening Day: Team-by-team previews and odds
Jon Heyman takes a team-by-team look around Major League Baseball ahead of the 2015 season and gives each team odds to win their division.
|2014 Summary: Former first-round pick Tyler Matzek made his major league debut in June, and initially, his numbers looked as unimpressive as his minor league stats had been. Matzek struggled with control and owned a 5.38 ERA and 1.52 WHIP through his first 14 appearances for the Rockies, but beginning with an Aug. 25 start at the Giants, he tried something different. The lefty started throwing his fastball less and his slider and changeup more. The result was vastly improved control and a higher ground ball rate, as he turned in a 4-2 record, 1.55 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over his final six starts.|
Playing time status: Matzek's strong finish should give him consideration for a rotation spot this spring. Between the majors and minors, he pitched 184 1/3 innings last season, so an innings cap seems unlikely.
2015 Outlook: It's risky to draft Matzek with the expectation that he can maintain close to what he did late last season for all of 2015. That upside, however, does make him worth a late-round flier in deeper mixed leagues.
