Steven Matz’s agent is being chastised by New York Mets owner Steve Cohen for his “unprofessional actions.”
Steven Matz’s agent was called out by New York Mets owner Steve Cohen in a tweet Wednesday morning, one day after the free-agent lefty signed with the St. Louis Cardinals instead of rejoining his old club.
Cohen said in his post, “I’m not pleased this morning.” “I’ve never seen a player’s agent behave in such a disrespectful manner.” Words and pledges don’t seem to matter.”
Matz and his agent, Rob Martin, had approached the Mets about returning, according to Cohen, who said that they were his first option.
I’m not in a good mood this morning. I’ve never seen a player’s agent behave in such a dishonest manner. Words and pledges don’t seem to matter.

According to ESPN, Matz and the Cardinals agreed to a four-year, $44 million contract on Tuesday. According to insiders, he may earn up to $48 million in the agreement and will get a signing bonus.
Martin said they were aware of Cohen’s tweet in a statement released on Wednesday.
In a statement, Martin added, “It’s sad that he decided to take his emotions to Twitter.” “I will not follow suit; instead, I will take the high road, which is consistent with both mine and our client’s personalities. Steven Matz grew up a Mets fan, enjoyed his time in the city, and continues to give back to the community by supporting New York’s first responders.
“As a consequence of everything, I felt compelled to return to the Mets.” However, in the end, he made the choice that he believed was best for him and his family. Steven is and will always be thankful to the Mets and Mets fans, but he is now looking forward to his new chapter with the incredible St. Louis Cardinals.”
Last season, the left-handed Matz, who was dealt from the Mets to the Blue Jays before the 2021 season, found his stride in the American League East, finishing 14-7 with a 3.82 ERA in 29 starts.
- As Toronto contended for a postseason spot late into the regular season’s last week, Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo referred to Matz as one of the team’s “unsung heroes.”
- Matz, 30, played for the Mets for six seasons after being drafted in the second round in 2009. In 5792/3 innings with the club, he was 31-41 with a 4.35 ERA and 552 strikeouts.
- Cohen told the New York Post, “[Matz] was a good Met while he was here.” “All I can do is wish him luck.” This was about the agent’s encounter.”
