Matzek (2-9) has now dropped five straight starts, though he looked like he had a chance to break the streak after six innings. Taking a 2-1 lead into the seventh, the starter gave up a one-out single and followed it up with a walk before being pulled. Both runs scored on double by the next batter. Matzek owns a 5.38 ERA and 53:30 K:BB ratio in 77 innings. He's scheduled to face the Giants Monday.

Tyler Matzek gets rocked in first start back in rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek took the loss in his first start back in the rotation Saturday against the Tigers in Detroit, dropping to 2-6 on the season. The right-hander didn't make a solid impression as he was shelled for eight runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings of a 11-5 defeat.

Matzek has just one win over his last 10 appearances. He owns a 5.31 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP over 59 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Friday at Arizona.

Tyler Matzek returning to rotation Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Rockies have re-inserted pitcher Tyler Matzek into the rotation, with his next start set to come Saturday against the Tigers.

Matzek was forced out of the rotation for a few days after an extra-inning game forced him into relief work Tuesday, but he will be back on track following Saturday. He has a 4.39 ERA in 55 1/3 innings this season, but has tossed quality starts in each of his last two.  


Tyler Matzek's next start unknown after relief appearance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek had no problem throwing in relief Tuesday, but that emergency appearance has forced the team to shuffle its rotation.

"I think I'm fine; it was just a normal short bullpen for me -- an extra bullpen between starts for me," Matzek, who also threw a bullpen session Monday, told MLB.com Thursday. "I've always been really durable. It felt fine that night and it feels fine now."

Matzel was scheduled to pitch in Thursday's afternoon game against the Cubs, but has been pulled out of the rotation for the time being. His next start has yet to be scheduled, but manager Walt Weiss will put Matzek back in the rotation soon. 


Tyler Matzek loses in extras in relief appearance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek took the loss Tuesday, as the starter was forced into action in relief in the 16th inning of a marathon contest.  

Matzek entered the game in the bottom of the 16th and promptly walked the first batter he faced. He then loaded the bases with a hit batter and a single, followed by a sacrifice fly that brought the winning run around and ended the game.

Matzek allowed one run in 2/3 innings, as his ERA rose to 4.39 for the season. He has a 2-5 record overall, and it is not yet clear how his 16-pitch outing will impact his availability in the rotation moving forward. 


Tyler Matzek tosses seven scoreless innings in win Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek earned a win Saturday, delivering seven scoreless innings while giving up three hits, issuing two walks and striking out three batters in his team's 8-1 victory over the Pirates.

Matzek (2-4) has watched the Rockies lose all of his starts since his season debut on June 11, but he breezed through the Pirates and picked up an easy win Saturday. He owns a 4.28 ERA and 35:17 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings. Matzek is slated to face the Cubs Thursday.


Tyler Matzek winless over his last seven starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Rockies starting pitcher Tyler Matzek saw his winless streak extend to seven starts during a no-decision Sunday against the Pirates. The left-handed hurler allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks, while striking out eight in six innings.

Matzek was pitching with a 3-0 lead before Jordy Mercer had a two-RBI single with no outs in the second inning. 

Matzek bounced back to toss three scoreless innings before Pittsburgh tied the game at 3 on Chris Stewart's RBI double in the sixth inning.

The highlight of the afternoon for the rookie pitcher was the career-best eight strikeouts. The lefty is expected to make his next start Saturday in a rematch with the Pirates.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Matzek (1-4) fell behind early Saturday, giving up a two-run double in the top of the first inning. The Twins would add a third run on a third-inning home run and one more run on a double by the Minnesota starting pitcher in the fourth. Matzek owns a 4.97 ERA and 24:12 K:BB ratio in 41 2/3 innings heading into the break.

Tyler Matzek settles for no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Matzek owns a 4.25 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP over five starts (29 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Monday at home against San Diego.

Tyler Matzek pitches well in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek tossed his second quality start Friday, but had to settle for a no-decision in a 3-2 loss to the Brewers.

Matzek tossed six solid innings, but actually left the game in line for a loss before the offense bailed him out. He allowed just one run on five hits in six innings of work, while striking out three batters and walking none on 83 pitches in the no-decision.

Matzek is 1-2 since joining the Rockies' rotation in early June. He has a 4.24 ERA in 23 1/3 innings over four starts heading into his next start, Wednesday in Washington. 


Tyler Matzek suffers first big-league loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Over his first two starts covering 12 innings of work, Matzek has allowed only five earned runs. He will look to get back in the win column Sunday at home against Milwaukee.

Not buying Tyler Matzek


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) Rockies left-hander Tyler Matzek was the 11th overall pick in the 2009 draft, and way back in 2011, Baseball America ranked him among its top-100 prospects.

And he showed why in his major-league debut Wednesday night, stifling the Braves over seven innings with a mid-90s fastball and plus slider.

But if stuff alone was enough to carry him, his minor-league track record would be a lot better than it is. He had major command issues throughout his four-plus seasons there, his 4.2 walks per nine innings at Triple-A Colorado Springs this season representing a career best, and as you might imagine, his ERA and WHIP suffered as a result. Prior to his promotion, they stood at 4.05 and 1.52, which is especially discouraging for a pitcher who'll make half his starts at Coors Field.

So why the immediate success -- and at Coors Field, no less? Part of it was him facing an offense that ranked 28th in runs scored, part of it was the element of surprise, and part of it was just ... well, that's the way baseball goes sometimes.

You can leave him for NL-only leagues.


Tyler Matzek gives up two runs, earns win in debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Rockies pitcher Tyler Matzek picked up a win in his major-league debut Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on five hits in seven innings while striking out seven in his team's 8-2 win over the Braves.

Matzek (1-0) retired the first 13 batters he faced in his debut before the Braves were able to break through with a hit. He held the Braves scoreless through seven innings before giving up three hits to start the eighth inning and getting removed. If Matzek sticks around, he'd take on the Dodgers Monday.


Rockies recall Tyler Matzek


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) The Rockies recalled pitcher Tyler Matzek from Triple-A Colorado Springs Wednesday.

Matzek is scheduled to make his major-league debut Wednesday, serving as the starter for his team's game against the Braves. He owns a 4.05 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 61:31 K:BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings with Colorado Springs.


Tyler Matzek name Rockies starter Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Rockies pitching prospect Tyler Matzek is scheduled to make his major-league debut Wednesday against the Braves, the Denver Post reports.

The Rockies' rotation has been decimated by injuries, and it'll allow Matzek, the 11th overall pick in the 2009 draft, to get his first crack at the big leagues despite his relatively pedestrian minor-league numbers. He is 5-4 with a 4.05 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 61:31 K:BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings with Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Matzek ready to resume career


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2011) The Denver Post reports Rockies SP prospect Tyler Matzek has rejoined Class A Asheville after taking a personal leave to work on his mechanics. He is scheduled to start Wednesday. "It wasn't taking time off," Matzek said from Asheville in a phone interview. "I was throwing more than I would have if I had been with the team. I was having issues with my command of pitches. My mechanics were bad. My confidence was tested. The best way to build confidence is by throwing strikes."
