Body Type: 6-foot-3, 235-pound uber physical prospect.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes: Physical presence that moves with a fluid tempo on the mound. Arm is on time with good separation at foot strike. Also shows some looseness to it and could have more strength as physical maturation takes its course.
Fastball: 81-82 mph. Fastball works downhill with slight cut to it. 1800-2100 spin rate guy with low 90s spin efficiency.
Curveball: Above average offering. Near 12/6 shape with big bite to it with quality depth.
Pitchability: Strike thrower.

2/17/18

6-foot-2 and 205-pound right-handed pitching prospect. Matthews has a solid frame to work with. Delivery has some rhythm working out of a big leg lift into his stride. Works slightly across his body finishing on a soft front side. Works out of a long arm action through a ¾ slot. Showed good feel for all his offerings on this day. Fastball sat 74-77 MPH with occasional sink. Breaking ball has 11/5 shape with good spin and developing depth. Also offered a changeup, the pitch has some sink near the zone at times sitting 65-67 MPH. Very physical bat from the right side. Loading sequence is fluid, incorporating a knee pinch with lower half as barrel flows through a bat tip movement. Hands show more strength than speed through the zone presently. Worked through a middle-away approach in BP, showing gap abilities to the opposite field. Run producer potential if bat speed can catch up to strength with maturity.

Home to First: 5.12
Exit Velocity: 77

1/22/17

6-foot-1, 190-pound prospect with big, athletic frame. Throws from ¾ slot with short arm action. Shows some quickness to his arm action. Regular effort to his delivery. Fastball was commanded for strikes at 74-76 mph. Breaking ball is soft with 12/6 action at 60-63 mph. Will be aided by throwing the pitch with faster arm speed. Changeup was his best off-speed pitch. Typically sat between 65-68 mph with some fade to it.

3/19/16

5-foot-11, 190-pound prospect. Short arm action through high ¾ arm slot. Top velocity of 63 mph. Projects more as a third base type. Average hands. Needs to continue to developing athleticism and quickness in his feet. Stands with his front foot turned in, while making solid contact with a top hand release. Registered a top exit velocity of 75 mph and ran a 9.32 60-yard dash. On the mound the righty used a slower tempo to a delivery he was able to repeat. Has a three pitch mix to his arsenal with his fastball sitting 68-71 mph. Curveball had gradual break with an 11/5 shape at 59-63 mph. Also mixed in a changeup near fastball armspeed at 58-59 mph.
