Four games into the young minor league season and Royals Farm Report #3 prospect Seuly Matias has already slugged four home runs in four games. The power we’ve been hearing about for a long time is starting to show signs in this 19-year-old Dominican big bonus signing.
This pitch was just middle/middle and Matias was ready for it and put the right swing on it. His unbelievable pull power showed, leading to the ball to fall beyond the right field bleachers.
Matias caught a falling pitch with his bat and showed the strength to bomb it into left-center field for big fly numero dos. Hitting it over that Orange Crush sign isn’t easy and Matias did it in his first game at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.
Swing hard with an uppercut and you’ll get good results.
Matias was challenged 0-2 with a fastball, which he usually struggles with. Not those time though, as he hit a loud line drive that had some exit velocity over the left fielder’s head.
