MLB.com has begun released there annual 2015 prospect rankings. Yesterday, the Top right handed prospects were announced and today the left handed pitching prospects were announced. Amongst them is 23 year old Steven Matz, who after a long recovery from Tommy John Surgery, is finally emerging as the pitcher the Mets hoped he'd become when they drafted him out of High School.
"Matz is lean, lanky and loose, firing mid-90s fastballs with ease and having the ability to reach back for more when he needs it. He throws it with sink, not only missing bats, but also generating groundball outs. His changeup is his best secondary offering, which he turns over and sinks very well. His curveball has gotten better, a big breaking ball he can keep down in the zone and is now a Major League average pitch. He doesn't hurt himself with walks, and his overall command has improved over time."
