Baseball America - SP - Steven Matz


17. Steven Matz, lhp, Mets
Steve MatzTeam: Triple-A Las Vegas (Pacific Coast)
Age: 24
Why He’s Here: 0-0, 0.00, 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 SO
The Scoop: Matz might not get the publicity of recently-promoted Vegas teammate Noah Syndergaard, but he is no less regarded than the big righthander within Mets circles. Matz fashions a mid-90s fastball, an improving curve and a change that scouts call plus. He has struck out a Pacific Coast League-leading 45 in 42 innings this season. The Mets don’t need him right now, but when they do, he’ll just add to a deep rotation.

Mack - Matz was the 17th ranked weekly 'highlight reel' according to BA. Nothing new here. Just some good reading material for the weekend.
