Rockies | Tyler Matzek returns to team

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 09:28:06 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek (anxiety) returned to spring training Thursday, March 31. He was away from the team for two weeks while taking brain tests and undergoing coaching for performance anxiety with new mental skills coach Rick Perea. Matzek also spent time in a saltwater float tank working on meditation and positive imagery. He failed to get anybody out in his first spring appearance on March 2, was scratched from his next start and then left camp on March 14.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his early demotion last season, this is a guy that can maybe eventually be a contributor for fantasy teams in deep leagues, even mixed ones. In his rookie campaign two years ago, he churned out a respectable 4.05 ERA in 19 starts and one relief appearance, but most impressive of all, he was 4-4 with a 3.61 ERA in eight assignments at Coors Field. If he can overcome his anxiety, he might have some upside to offer later on with his home-pitching prowess, but he's not someone that needs to be stashed right away.

Rockies | Tyler Matzek dealing with anxiety

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 22:02:11 -0800

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek (illness) continues to deal with performance anxiety, and he was scratched from a 'B' game spring start recently and his next appearance has yet to be scheduled. The team hired a psychologist to work as their mental skills coach, and Matzek is their primary student.

Fantasy Tip: Matzek is a young player with a ton of upside, but he'll need to get right between the ears if he is to tap into that potential and be useful to fantasy owners.

Rockies | Tyler Matzek sent down

Fri, 08 May 2015 14:38:40 -0700

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek was optioned to Class AAA Friday, May 8, and the Rockies recalled C Wilin Rosario in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Matzek ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was sporting a 4.09 ERA this year after allowing four earned runs and six walks in his last start Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It's unclear who will take his rotation spot. Rosario will likely be a utility option off the Rockies' bench, and he'll come in with a very cheap FantasyScore salary, most likely.

Rockies | Tyler Matzek coming up

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 07:36:04 -0700

The Colorado Rockies will call up SP Tyler Matzek from Triple-A Colorado Springs to start Wednesday, June 11, and make his major-league debut against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Matzek, the team's first-round pick in 2009, hasn't set the world ablaze with a 4.05 ERA at Triple-A. However, he's an immediate NL-only pickup with a shot to contribute in mixed leagues down the line.

Rockies | Tyler Matzek on deck?

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 05:20:27 -0700

The Colorado Rockies could look to call up SP Tyler Matzek from Triple-A Colorado Springs or SP Jon Gray from Double-A Tulsa with SP Jordan Lyles (hand) out. They could also insert P Franklin Morales back into the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: The latter two options seem to be a reach. Matzek is 5-3 with a 4.15 ERA and 52 K's in 60 2/3 innings. He'd be worth a look in NL-only formats with some matchup value in mixed leagues.

Thu, 19 Jan 2012 19:33:48 -0800

Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Matzek had a second straight disappointing season in the minors in 2011, but he feels the worst is behind him.

Matzek has focused on his stride direction and not hooking his arm behind his body in his delivery.
