Mets might not announce their National League Division Series roster until Friday.

The New York Mets aren’t likely to announce their 25-man roster until they can determine the health of pitcher Steven Matz, who is a candidate to start the if-necessary Game 4 at Citi Field.

Matz, who’s recovering from tightness in his left (throwing) shoulder, told reporters in New York that he felt better Wednesday after throwing a bullpen session at Citi Field.

Rosters are not due to MLB until 10 a.m. Friday.
