The owner of New Mets York's Steve Cohen took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to express his displeasure with theleft-hander Steven Matz.
"I'm not happy this morning " Cohen said in his post. "I have never seen such unprofessional behavior from a gamer agent. I guess words and promises don't matter.
Matz, a former Met who pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays last season, reportedly accepted a $ 44 million four-year contract with St Louis Cardinals Tuesday.
Cohen declared in New York Post that Matz and his agent, Rob Martin, had asked the Mets to want to come back and that they were his first choice.
The General Manager fromNew Mets Billy Eppler also told the Post that he believes the team will have an opportunity to make Matz an offer before he makes his final decision.
The Mets traded 30-year-old Matz to the Blue Jays before 20 21 seasons and he was 14-7 with a 3.82 ERA in 29 starts.
A second-round pick in 2009, Matz pitched for six seasons in New York and was 31-41 with a 4.35 ERA and 552 strikeouts in 579 and two-thirds of the innings with the team.
"(Matz) was a good Met when he was here," Cohen told the Post. "I wish her only well. It was about the interaction with the agent. "
