Matz will miss spring start because of elbow tenderness (The Associated Press)

Mets pitcher Steven Matz has been scratched from his Monday start in a minor league game because of tenderness in his left elbow. ''There's a little irritation, and he's got to work that out,'' Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said on Sunday. Alderson said the problem has bothered Matz for ''a period of time'', but that he hasn't been sent for an MRI.

Syndergaard-D'Arnaud can't stop stolen bases (The Associated Press)

The Houston Astros demonstrated Friday what the rest of the league knows and the Mets realize themselves, but haven't been able to fix.

The Astros were a perfect 4 for 4 in stolen bases at First Data Field in the right-hander's fourth start of the spring: three by Derek Fisher, the other by fellow outfielder Jake Marisnick.
