Mattson is a 6'5"-180 pound-2006 left-handed pitcher from La Mesa, California, who attends Grossmont High School. He is tall and lean with long arms and legs and has room to fill out. He has a very projectable pitcher's body. Mats has some herky jerky mechanics and throws across his body making him very deceptive to the hitter. He has a loose, quick arm which produces good movement on his fastball that tops out at 81 mph. Mattson's slurve has a short break, and he keeps it down in the zone making it tough for hitters to make solid contact. It is a deloping pitch, but he can spin the ball. He shows good command of his pitches and tends to stay away from the heart of the plate making hitters hit his pitch. His curveball tops out at 69 mph and his changeup at 64 mph. Mats shows good promise and will only get better when he grows into his body. He has very good upside.
