Mateo is only 3 or 4 inches from being a top draft prospect. Don't be fooled by his size though because this kid has outstanding stuff. His fastball explodes and his breaking ball at times is unhittable. If winning counts, college coaches should get in line.

Mateo is not the prototype tall righthander, but he has an exceptionally live arm. His 89 mph fastball explodes at the plate and his breaking ball is a borderline plus major league pitch right now. Mateo was invited to Tropicana and he also pitched well at the USA Baseball trials in Joplin. This kid is a DI gem; it would be a mistake to let his size fool anyone.
