Matthew Nordsten is 2005, 6'4" left hander from Altadena, CA. He throws his fastball from a very low ¾’s to almost side arm release point and really gets a lot of running action on the pitch. Nordsten’s fastball topped out in the mid 70s, but there's a lot more in him. He threw his curveball from a much higher release point trying to get over the pitch, but of course tips the pitch by changing his release point. Nordsten’s curveball was 65-67 mph, leading us to believe that he would throw much harder on his fastball from a higher release point. At 6'4 and being a lefty with outstanding movement on his pitches he projects nicely. His best years are ahead of him. Matthew is an outstanding student.

Matthew Nordsten -- Nordsten is a big and strong 6-4, 200 lb. left hander from California. He’s got a big frame and his lower half is already well muscled. Nordsten throws from a over the top release point and has some stiffness to his overall actions and mechanics. His fastball was in the 74-75 mph range and he threw a 64-65 mph curveball. A lefty with his body is very intriguing, he needs to get some mechanical help. He swings the bat well and is good around the bag at 1B. He has excellent power potential especially if he starts to use his lower half a bit better. Matthew is a very good student.
