News: Matzek likely will miss out on a two-start week with Eddie Butler set to join the rotation Saturday against the Diamondbacks, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports. Impact: Matzek, who will start Tuesday against the Dodgers, was set to take the hill for his second turn of the week on Sunday, but the addition of Butler will push everyone back a day. It's probably a blessing in disguise, as Matzek gets to bypass a start at Coors Field and instead make one next week at the more forgiving confines of Petco Park.(RotoWire, )

News: Matzek struck out seven and walked four while giving up two runs on four hits over 6.1 innings in a losing effort Wednesday. Impact: While the young left-hander has a two-start week on tap, both of those turns will come at Coors Field. Matzek will face the Dodgers on Tuesday before seeing the D-backs on Sept. 21.(RotoWire, )

News: Matzek put together another strong outing Friday, allowing three hits in a complete-game 3-0 win over San Diego. Impact: The left-hander is 3-0 with an 0.78 ERA in his last three starts.(STATS, 9:48pm)

News: Matzek (5-9) earned his first career shutout Friday, holding the Padres to three hits and one walk with six strikeouts. Impact: Matzek became the first Rockies pitcher to throw a shutout this season, with the feat even more impressive in that it came at Coors Field. The lefty has now given up only two runs over his last three starts, covering a total of 23 innings. While he has battled control issues during a mostly disappointing minor-league career, Matzek seems to have unexpectedly corrected that flaw during his 17 appearances (16 starts) with the Rockies. Matzek owns a palatable 3.24 BB/9 rate and has generated ground balls on nearly half the balls in play he's allowed over 100 innings, aiding his success and putting him on the inside track to lock down a rotation spot in 2015.(RotoWire, )

News: Matzek appears to have turned things around. He allowed three hits over seven innings in a 2-0 win at Arizona on Saturday. Impact: The left-hander has won his last two starts after losing five in a row.(STATS, 3:33pm)
