After Mets LHP Steven Matz struggled against the Cardinals in the Mets' 9-1 loss on Wednesday, Mets manager Mickey Callaway would not explicitly say whether the left-hander would make his next scheduled start.
Callaway said he "won't make any rash decisions" but will sit down with Matz and "figure out exactly and how we can help him."
Matz allowed seven runs, three earned, in 3.1 innings on Wednesday night en route to his second loss of the season.
The Mets struggled defensively, committing three errors -- including a throwing error by Matz. Jose Lobaton missed a catch and Todd Frazier was charged with a fielding error, contributing to four unearned runs for Matz on the night.
Dexter Fowler drove in Kolten Wong with a sacrifice fly in the third inning to put the Cardinals on the board and Marcell Ozuna added an RBI single to plate Harrison Bader later in the inning.
In the fourth, Paul DeJong scored on Michael Wacha's sacrifice bunt and Matz walked in a run. The Cardinals tacked on two more runs in the inning.
Matz, who pitched on extra rest due to Sunday's rainout, completed less than five innings for the second consecutive outing after allowing three runs in four innings against the Nationals on April 18.
Matz now has a 4.98 ERA after five starts this season for the Mets.
