The first statement from the Long Island Native was issued to the Mets fans and organization.
His next statement was geared towards the Blue Jays fanbase and his future with the team.
While Matz was always considered a high-end prospect, it just didn’t pan out that way while with the Mets organization. He’s still young, he has some things to figure out, yes, but Toronto could be the environment to help him thrive mentally.
With the Mets getting back salary relief in the form of $5.2M, they’re also receiving a few players that could have a decent impact relatively soon.
