Mets left-hander Steven Matz to have elbow surgery again

NEW YORK (AP) Mets pitcher Steven Matz needs another elbow operation, ending a miserable season for the New York left-hander.

Matz was diagnosed Monday with irritation of the ulnar nerve in his left elbow, the team said. Surgery was recommended to reposition the nerve and relieve the irritation, a similar procedure to the one teammate Jacob deGrom had last year.

"It's tough, but I've talked to some guys who have had this procedure done before and they came back feeling good and it solved the problem. I'm happy there's an answer to it," Matz said. "I'm definitely really optimistic."
