2019 PG Underclass All American Games  
Matthew Buchanan is a 2021 LHP/OF/1B with a 6-1 190 lb. frame from Lebanon, VA who attends Lebanon. Athletic build with good present strength. Has a very simple and repeatable delivery on the mound, stays balanced and directional well, 3/4's arm slot with a loose and quick arm coming through. Primary fastball pitcher this outing, spots his fastball very well with good running action, has the ability to locate to the glove side, worked in the mid-80's, topping out at 87 mph, but got generally weak swings and even swing/miss in the zone, has some hidden deception. Tends to slow his arm on a sweeping low 70's curveball, developing change up that will likely become an important pitch for him at the next level. Showed good athleticism in the outfield in drills. Left handed hitter, hits from a spread stance with an upper body rotational swing, middle of the field line drive contact, 4.58 runner home to first. Excellent student, verbal commitment to Virginia.
