07/20/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Stockton (Sacramento), CA Mateo is a L/R 2-way player as a C/RHP. Behind the dish, he sits in well and tracks pitches into a soft mitt. He works around pitches in the dirt, centering/deadening the ball off of his chest. He stays directional toward 2B on throws down with pop times at 2.78. Times will continue to drop as he works to strengthen his arm (long toss) and quicken his exchange. As a hitter, this lefty displays an athletic setup with rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation, whips the barrel and creates good extension through contact. On the mound, Mateo has a 3-pitch mix coming from a high 3/4 arm slot. He keeps his eyes on the target and repeats his delivery well. FB ranges from 61-62 mph as he throws it for strikes. Breaking ball shows 10/4 shape - 54-55 mph. Driving off of the rubber more with his strong lower 1/2 will help to increase velocity of his FB. Only a 2024 grad - Hague still has a ton of time to develop his skills.
