My knowledge of Specialized road bikes is quite low. This blue one popped up for sale near me. Appears to be aluminum and from the mid 90's. Any idea what model it may be and its value?

It could be a version of what they called an M2. They had different levels with the main difference being the quality of components, wheels, etc. I found a 1995 that had a bluish gray color and a chrome fork. That was the closest I got.

They list the frame as being "welded metal matrix", whatever that means?

I do believe that you're correct. I see one that is currently offered on Ebay and it is an almost perfect match.

Thank you!
