Mets' starting pitcher Steven Matz revealed that new GM Brodie Van Wagenen reached out to him, and that he's excited about the hire.
"I think it's a unique situation for sure," Matz said Thursday night at his Tru32 charity bowling event in Times Square. "I think we're all excited about it. Like I said he reached out to me, which is really cool, and I'm sure he's doing that to all the other guys as well. I think everybody is excited. It's a new year, we got Brodie coming in and let's see what he can do."
Matz hosted "Strikes with Steven," an event to raise scholarship money for children of New York City first responders who have died in the line of duty.
