Steven Matz has stopped throwing his slider this season in hopes that it will help him stay healthy.
Matz didn't throw the pitch coming up through the minors, but, like many other Mets hurlers along the way, was taught the "Warthen slider" by pitching coach Dan Warthen once he reached the big leagues. It can be a nasty offering but also puts a tremendous amount of stress on the elbow, so it's probably best that the injury-prone Matz has decided to ditch it. Worth noting is that Matz's strikeouts are down this season so far in his first three starts (14 in 20 innings), although he did whiff eight over six frames against the Dodgers on Thursday.
