2014

2012

Matzek can miss bats (10.29 K/9IP at Low-A and High-A) but seems to have no idea where the ball is going, as he issued 96 walks over 97 innings last season. The young left-hander even took a leave from the organization midseason to work with a former pitching instructor on his mechanics, and it's possible that he figured something out late in the year as he shaved his walk rate to 4.17 BB/9IP over 41 innings in August and September. The Rockies will probably start him back at High-A Modesto in hopes that the improved control he displayed late last season gets him back on track.

2011

Matzek, the Rockies' 2009 first-round pick, is a hard-throwing lefty with a full arsenal of pitches. In 2010, he spent the season at Low-A Asheville with a 2.92 ERA, 8.9 K/9IP strikeout rate and .198 batting average against. His 6.3 BB/9IP walk rate is concerning, but he's only one year removed from high school, so he's still developing. Once he gets over that hump, he should be able to pitch deeper into games and hit his stride. He's regarded as a player that should move quickly through the Rockies' system and could make his debut as early as 2011. Those in keeper leagues should take note of Matzek's talents, if they haven't already done so.

2010

The Rockies' first-round pick in 2009, Matzek participated in the instructional league during the fall, but will get his first taste of pro ball in 2010. Projected to remain in extended spring training (warm weather) before moving to Low-A, Matzek has the Rockies excited with his 94-96 mph fastball and a full repertoire that includes a curve, slider and changeup, as well as his great work ethic, competitive nature and polished mechanics at such a young age. Matzek is said to mix all of his pitches very well while keeping hitters off balance by changing speeds and location. Look for Matzek to progress quickly and have an impact role in the Rockies' rotation no later than late 2011, putting him firmly on the radar for those in keeper leagues.
