Matthew Bates is a 2015 SS/RHP with a 5-9 140 lb. frame from Lynchburg, VA who attends LIberty Christian Academy. Smaller, thin frame, very good athlete with room to grow. Still very young. Ran a 7.08 60 yard dash. Flashes some arm strength across the infield, has the footwork to play up the middle. Needs to b a little more consistent with his hands. Hits right-handed, works from an even stance and flashes some bat speed. Top hand oriented swing, hits line drives. Also took the mound, touched 81 mph with his fastball. High effort delivery, uses his lower half effectively and pitches downhill. Throws over the top, and flashes 11-5 curveball at 76 mph. Breaking ball is sharp and late. Picks at corners and throws a lot of strikes.
