Matthews is a medium bodied 5-11 junior right handed pitcher from the unusual baseball state of Vermont. He threw 4 innings in Fort Myers, with a short arm stroke in back and a slinging mid ¾’s release point out front. Matthews release point and arm action gave his 73-76 mph fastball some good arm side running action at times. Matthews breaking ball was a big breaking 59-63 mph curveball and he had some nice sinking action on a 65-67 mph change up. One piece of showcase advice from the PG staff for Matthews; you shouldn’t throw to first base so much, it’s good to see the runners run and the catchers throw and we really don’t keep score. For a Northeast player at this time of year, Matthews took a nice batting practice, too. He’s a switch hitter with good hitting fundamentals and a nice level swing from both sides. We imagine that he’s a pretty good high school hitter up in Vermont in the late spring. Matthews is a good student.

David Matthews is a 2006 right handed pitcher/outfielder from Williston, Vermont, with a 5'11", 170 lb. frame. Although David showed well in the outfield, we feel his future might on the mound. He throws from a low ¾ arm slot with tremendous arm side movement , and a loose arm. His fastball was consistently 74 mph, and he had tremendous command of the strike zone. Matthews throws a 11-7 tight breaking ball that he consistently throws for strikes. He is one to watch as he is not rattled easily, and has a tremendous mound presence. Matthews hits with good balance and plus bat speed.
