Height: 6’3″

Weight: 185 lbs.

Bats: Left

Strengths:
Matzek is the rare high school pitcher who combines above-average stuff and polish.  He throws four pitches for strikes: a 90-93 mph fastball, two excellent breaking balls and a changeup.  He has more command than most high school pitchers.

Weaknesses:
Like any high school pitcher, Matzek carries some risk.  Matzek probably profiles as a #2 starter in the big leagues, not as a true ace like Stephen Strasburg.

The Future:
Top ten picks overall.
