Midwest Future Games Profile: Matthew Vierling from CBC

Midwest Future Game 2013 SLIDE

Matthew Vierling, OF/RHP, CBC
Currently ranked No. 1 in the Class of 2015, Vieling already has coaches from multiple D1 schools buzzing about him.

The projectable 6-foot-3, 185-pound Vierling shows a strong, loose arm on the mound, with easy effort. In February, his fastball sat 83-85, topping at 86-mph with late sink action. We have seen him as high as 88-mph this summer. With the way his arm works, there are a few more miles per hour in that arm. He also showed a 11-to-5 breaking a (78-79 mph) with near fastball arm speed and a 73-77 mph change up down in the zone with arm side run.

At the plate, Vierling has a quiet, easy swing and the ball jumps off his bat. He takes an economical path to the baseball with extension through contact and hard line drives. He shows some strength in his hands (89 mph exit velocity) and looseness in his swing. As he continues to fill out his frame, Vierling has potential to be a power threat.
