Matthew Murray is a 2008 RHP with a 6'4'', 220 lb. frame from Spring City, PA who attends Owen J Roberts HS. He has a big, strong body with power written all over it. Despite his size and strength, Murray's arm action is loose and fast and he gets good extension out front. He throws from a high 3/4's to overhand release point and gets good leverage and angle to the plate on his pitches. Murray does have a tendency to rush his big body out in front of his arm at times, in part because he does have a long and deep arm extension in back. Murray's fastball was 88-92 mph at the showcase with the promise of even more in the future. He threw both a curveball and a slider and had good feel for both pitches and spun them both hard with good breaking action. Murray didn't throw a change up, although we know he has one. Murray has a power body, a power arm action and the making of some power pitches. Follow him closely.
