WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Mathews was a thirdbaseman and closer in high school.  Baseball America does not rate him among the top 41 prospects in Tennessee.  Other scouting reports characterize him as having a good bat with some power projection and good range.  He has a commitment to Austin Peay.  The Pirates may have drafted him as a backup in case they fail to sign some of their early picks, or they may just want to follow him in summer ball.
