Baseball draft is Monday, could have local angle

Question of Matthews getting drafted is probably when, not if

POSTED: June 4, 2011 3:16 p.m.

Pro scouts followed Richmond Hill High School lefthanded pitcher Kevin Matthews around with radar guns and notebooks all spring.

Matthews will find out what they thought of him starting Monday, when the first-round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft for first-year players gets underway. You can follow it here at: http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/events/draft/y2011/.

Matthews, a 5-10, 160-pounder with a fastball in the low 90s, has committed to the University of Virgina and is rated as one of the top pitchinig prospects from the state by various scouting services. So, stay tuned.
