DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)What separates Tyler Matzek from someone like Dellin Betances or any number of pitchers that never could really find the strike zone? Stuff? Age? Experience? I realize Betances is much older, which hurts the comparison a bit, but I have never understood why some prospects are afforded a much longer rope when they struggle. Is it simply a case by case scouting thing?
(Anthony from Long Island)
Athleticism. Betances is a well below-average athlete and struggles with adjustments. Matzek has a much better chance of smoothing it out. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have any faith in Tyler Matzek continuing to rebound and end up a major leaguer?
(Ian from Easton, PA)
Yes. The arm is special, and if he finds mechanical rhythm, sheeeeeet. Look out. (Jason Parks)
