Ryan Mattheus: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Mattheus pitched a 1-2-3 inning in relief Thursday against the Tigers, proving to be finally healthy, but he is unlikely to earn the the Nationals' final bullpen spot out of camp, Mark Zuckerman of NatsInsider.com reports.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Mattheus put together a very solid year in relief despite battling through a foot injury early in the season, but in a Washington bullpen jam-packed with power arms and players with longer resumes, it is hard to see how he will pitch in enough high-leverage situations to have any real fantasy value.

2012

Mattheus appeared in 35 games out of the bullpen for the Nationals in 2011 after spending time in both Double-A and Triple-A. He posted a surprising 2.35 ERA, helped in large part to a .236 BABIP and a 2.9 percent HR/FB ratio. Despite averaging 93.8 mph, Mattheus does not record many swings and misses due to a lack of a dominant secondary pitch. His 3.38 K/9IP and 4.22 BB/9IP indicate he will not be as fortunate in 2012.

2010

His numbers at Double-A in 2008 were good enough for the Nationals to give him a look despite a very rough 2009 campaign. He could still be a future big league middle reliever though, trivial considerations like shoulder troubles and control issues willing.

2009

Five professional seasons, one ERA below 5.00, 25 years old, yet to pitch above Double-A, hasn't proven that his shoulder can hold up. Makes you wonder who the first guy left out of the magazine was, doesn't it?
