    1) How big of a jump is it from high school competition to the Sally League.
    2) When a pitcher has a stretch of bad starts, what’s the most important thing to keep in mind?

    Thank you.

    Do you feel like you’ve made solid progress since you’ve been drafted?
    More specifically, do you think that you’re well on your way to being promoted to a higher league?

    What big leaguer, past or present, would you compare your style too? Do you try to emulate yourself after anyone? Is there a pitch you dont currently throw in games that you’d like to work on and add to your arsenal?

    1 and 2) In an interview with Baseball Beginningsthis past January, you discussed your off-season workouts with Athletes Performance Institute. What does your in-season training involve? Do the Orioles create unique workout programs for individual players?

    3)Are you and the Orioles staff attempting to increase your velocity, or are you all working more on control issues this season?

    Matt when you chart a game, do you look for hitters tendencies and potential weaknesses?

    1.Matt, do you have any nicknames?

    2. Do you pull pranks on your teammates? Or have you gotten pranked? (I.E. A bubble of gum on the bill of a guy’s hat?)

    3. How do you rank your pitches in terms of effectiveness against hitters and which pitch would you most like to add to your repertoire?

      Hey Adam, thanks for the comment. Unfortunately I’ve already sent the questions in to Matt, so you’re a little late…the results will be posted within the next three days.

      However, I’m hoping to have more players do this so keep your eye out!
