Unsigned Senior Spotlight: LHP Edward Mathis

Edward Mathis, LHP, South Oldham HS, 2014mathis

Edward Mathis is a 6-foot, 165-pound LHP who impressed at the Kentucky Top Prospect Games Event in June.  His arm is loose and works extremely well through a high ¾ slot to produce a fastball that sits 81-82 mph.  Mathis throws a two-seamer with some arm-side run and also shows the ability to throw an effective cutter that he likes to run in on the hands of right-handed hitters

In addition, Mathis has complete command of his 68-73 mph breaking ball that was one of the best at the Top Prospect Games Event, and he isn’t afraid to throw it on any count.

While Mathis doesn’t light up the radar gun yet, his pitchability is impressive, and I like his bulldog mentality on the mound while attacking both sides of the plate.  He repeats his delivery well, and there is likely more velocity in the tank in the near future.
