Drafted in the 27th round (829th overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2012
Mathews needed four years and four schools--Florida, Western Carolina, Santa Fe (Fla.) JC, and N.C. State--to finally break through and put some results together with his tools. A first-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference choice, he ranked third in the league in home runs with 14 (after hitting 15 last summer in the Coastal Plain League) and second in slugging at .628. He generates good bat speed with a whippy, wristy swing. He's also an above-average runner. His below-average instincts mitigate his tools and athletic ability, especially on defense. He was frequently used as a DH by the Wolfpack due to defensive mistakes. He is among the older prospects in this year's class as a 22-year-old fifth-year senior.
