Matt Rudick
Name: Matthew Jon Rudick
Born: Jul 2, 1998 in San Diego, CA
College: San Diego State
Ht.: 5'9" / Wt.: 170 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 13th round (382nd overall) by the New York Mets in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
Rudick played for USA Baseball’s 15U National Team in high school and had a productive four-year career at San Diego State. He hit over .300 in each of his first three seasons, hit well in the Cape Cod League before his junior year, won MVP of the San Diego League last summer and finished his college career by batting .410 this spring. Rudick lacks big tools, but he can hit. He consistently puts the bat on the ball from the left side, almost never strikes out (he struck out nine times in 178 at-bats this season) and takes an advanced, mature approach. He is mostly a singles hitter and possesses little power, but he knows who he is and doesn’t try to do too much. He is a pest at the top of the order who wears pitchers out and sets the tone for his team. Rudick played center field for the Aztecs but projects to move to left field with his fringe-average speed and average arm. He is a candidate to be taken as a senior sign on the draft’s third day.
