Description: Baltimore lefthander Brian Matusz had surgery to repair a muscle tear in his abdomen last month according to MLB.com's Brittany Ghiroli.
Insight: Matusz struggled as a starter (5-10, 5.42 ERA in 16 starts) but was able to find his niche in the Orioles' bullpen late in the season (1-0, 1.35 in 18 appearances). He should be ready for spring training.
 
7/1/2012 6:40:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk Sunday after his latest poor outing.
Insight: Matusz (5-10, 5.42 ERA) can be dropped in all fantasy leagues.
 
6/15/2012 11:02:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz gave up four runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings Friday against Atlanta.
Insight: Matusz (5-7, 4.94) was hit in the nose during a bunting drill Tuesday, causing the Orioles to push his start back to Friday. He's been too inconsistent to start outside of deep AL-only leagues.
 
6/13/2012 4:10:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz has been scratched from Wednesday's start against Pittsburgh with a nose contusion. He's been confirmed to start Friday against Atlanta.
Insight: Matusz was hit in the nose during a bunting drill Tuesday but he was initially confirmed for his start Wednesday. We wouldn't use Matusz Friday at Atlanta, as the Baltimore lefty is 3-3 with a 5.01 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in six road starts this season.
 
6/12/2012 8:03:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz is expected to make his scheduled start Wednesday after X-rays on his nose came back negative, according to Brittany Ghiroli of MLB.com.
Insight: Matusz was hit in the nose during a bunting drill Tuesday and was questionable for his start Wednesday. Matusz is just 2-3 with a 4.64 ERA in six starts on the road this season, but he's facing Pittsburgh Wednesday so feel free to use him.
 
6/12/2012 4:40:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz was hit in the nose during a bunting drill Tuesday and is questionable for his start Wednesday.
Insight: The Orioles will make a decision on Matusz' availability for Wednesday after evaluating him Tuesday night. Baltimore is lucky to avoid a situation like Pittsburgh had with A.J. Burnett. The Pirates right-hander broke an orbital bone during a bunting drill in the preseason and had to miss several weeks of action.
 
6/6/2012 7:04:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz will start Thursday against Boston. He's been successful in his career against the Red Sox and has pitched well lately, but he's not a good streaming option due to the game taking place at Fenway Park.
Insight: Matusz has thrown four straight quality starts and owns a 3-1 record with a 3.58 ERA and .209 BAA in seven career starts against Boston. However, he has a 4.58 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in four starts at Fenway Park.
 
6/2/2012 8:00:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz improved to 5-5 on the season after beating Tampa Bay Saturday. The left-hander allowed one run on two hits in 7 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out seven.
Insight: Matusz has won five of his last seven starts and has thrown four straight quality starts.
 
6/7/2011 7:31:00 AM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz picked up his first win of the season, allowing 2 runs in 5 1/3 innings against Oakland. Matusz gave up 7 hits and walked 2, while striking out 3.
Insight: This was a good, not great, start for Matusz after a long layoff. Expect him to improve, especially in the K numbers, as he gets back into game shape and gains arm strength.
 
6/1/2011 7:28:00 PM
Description: Brian Matusz made his debut after suffering an oblique injury in spring training and helped the O's snap a five game losing skid. Matusz went 5 2/3 and struck out three while allowing one run on four hits.
Insight: This is a solid debut for Matusz who has Top 30-40 SP potential and 0 walks is a key stat in a first start like this.
 
6/1/2011 5:48:00 PM
Description: The Baltimore Orioles have activated starter Brian Matusz off the 15-day disabled list and will make his season debut against the Mariners. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: Get Matusz active if you have not already done so.
 
5/13/2011 7:25:00 PM
Description: Baltimore Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz is ready to start a minor league rehab assignment. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: Matusz is about two weeks away from being able to make a fantasy impact, barring any setbacks.
 
4/21/2011 7:49:00 AM
Description: Brian Matusz is scheduled to throw from 120 on Friday and Sunday and be re-evaluated on Monday by the Orioles. SOURCE: ORIOLES.COM
Insight: It sounds like Matusz is still 2-3 weeks away from pitching in a big league game because he still has to throw from a mound and then make at least one rehab start in the minors.
 
4/18/2011 11:38:00 AM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz is still feeling effects from a strained left intercostal muscle and hasn't been cleared to throw off the mound. He'll remain on a throwing program at the team's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla., for the time being. "I don't expect him to join us anytime soon," manager Buck Showalter said. SOURCE: Baltimore Sun
Insight: Matusz was touted as a breakout candidate this year so this is bad news, as there is no official timetable for his return. Keep him stashed on your bench until he is cleared to return.
 
4/5/2011 2:01:00 AM
Description: Matusz is expected to miss at least the first month of the season with an intercostal strain that has landed him on the DL.
Insight: The upside on Matusz's injury is that it afforded Zach Britton an opportunity, on which he capitalized his first time out. Matusz could be out as long as six weeks. (RapidDraft.com)
 
4/2/2011 5:40:00 AM
Description: Brian Matusz (intercostal strain) has been placed on the DL. Chris Tillman will start today and prized prospect Zach Britton will start on Sunday. SOURCE:MLB
Insight: This is very disappointing for Matusz owners since many of them reached for him, predicting a breakout season. Now they will have to wait. Britton was dominant in spring training and can be added to the bench in deeper leagues right away.
 
4/1/2011 4:27:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz, battling upper back soreness, was scratched from his start tomorrow. SOURCE: Rotoworld
Insight: This does not sound like anything serious right now, but pay attention to the news to see if this injury gets worse.
 
3/28/2011 3:36:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz was hit in the left biceps during a sim game and he may not be ready for Opening Day. SOURCE: Jeff Zrebiec via Twitter
Insight: The initial reports do not indicate that this will be a long-term issue but don't be surprised to see Matusz miss a start or two.
 
3/24/2011 5:23:00 AM
Description: Brian Matusz allowed four runs while getting just four outs last night.
Insight: He has more potential than most late round starters so he is still a good end game draft selection. However, he has been inconsistent in spring training so it might be wise to leave him on the bench for his first regular season start.
 
3/19/2011 12:26:00 PM
Description: Orioles SP Brian Matusz struck out 8 Twins in just 4 2/3 innings and allowed 1 run on 6 hits.
Insight: Matusz appears poised to take the next step in 2011 and, because of the hype, has seen his draft value rise; expect to draft him as your #3/4 starting pitcher.
