Kmatz attracts draft interest because of his advanced feel for the game considering his age and experience level. The New Mexico high school righthander has a clean, repeatable high three-quarters delivery with downhill plane and deception. He throws plenty of strikes with a fastball sitting 88-92 mph, touching 95, getting the velocity more from leveraging his mechanics than on pure arm speed. Both breaking balls project to be above-average pitches and the changeup should be an average offering. Kmatz’s arsenal plays up because of his future plus command. Kmatz has a more polished repertoire than most high school hurlers, giving him a lower ceiling but a higher floor. He’s a feel over stuff type of pitcher with good makeup. An Oregon State commit, Kmatz is considered to be signable.
