David Price Is Stepping Up When Needed Most

Jamie Gatlin | June 4th, 2019

When David Price signed with Boston four years ago he was expected to be the ace to deliver a championship. Price claimed that he had saved all his postseason wins for Boston but failed to meet expectations. His postseason struggles continued in 2016 and injuries limited him the following season.

Matthew Allan, RHP (Seminole High School in Florida)

MLB Pipeline Grades – Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 60 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 55 | Overall: 55

Matthew Allan is a right-handed starting pitcher who attends Seminole High School in Florida. He has a strong build with room to fill out more. He pitches with a relatively slow delivery and a large leg raise. His pitching mechanics come naturally to him, requiring little effort. He pitches with more control from the windup as opposed to the stretch. His fastball is accurate and tops out at 97 miles per hour. As he continues to mature physically, he will probably be able to dial his fastball up to 98-99. He was selected to play in the 2018 Perfect Game All-American Classic. Continue reading
