Coach Graham One Victory Away From Career Milestone
Strong work-horse... Displayed a good feel for pitching in a myriad of situations... Has a chance to be effective as a starter or working out of the bullpen.
Wayne Graham said -- "Matt is a proven Division I starter. We're hoping he'll be 100-percent physically in the spring, and if he is he could have a big impact."
