Let's have the bad news first. Steven Matz has been diagnosed with a bone spur in his pitching elbow which the club has acknowledged already may require surgery. If so, what is the course of action?
I'd go with Sean Gilmartin (lefty replacing lefty) to tide them over until Zack Wheeler is deemed ready.
Even if it's a matter of a relatively short DL stint, you still need a plan. Just don't make it Logan Verrett.
On the more positive note, Yulieski Gourriel posed in some Instagram photos today in Mets gear. I don't know if he did the same when he worked out for the Dodgers, but I'll take whatever encouraging signs I can get.
