Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata's contract was purchased by the Red Sox on Friday.

One of Boston's top pitching prospects, Mata spent the summer at the alternate site, although he missed a couple weeks with a hamstring injury. He won't turn 22 until May but already has 11 starts at Double-A under his belt, so he could open the year at Triple-A. Mata has the potential to develop into a mid-rotation starter if he can throw enough strikes.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Resumes throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata (hamstring) has completed a pair of bullpen sessions over the past week and is expected to pitch in a simulated game at the Red Sox's alternate training site before the 2020 season ends, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Mata has been shut down since late August after developing a left hamstring cramp during a simulated game, but the injury doesn't look like it will keep him sidelined as the offseason nears. One of the organization's top pitching prospects, the 21-year-old Mata posted a 5.03 ERA and 1.47 WHIP to go with 59 strikeouts over 53.2 innings at Double-A Portland. Mata could probably use some further refinement in the minors, but he should be a candidate to enter Boston's rotation at some point in 2021.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Suffers injury at alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata suffered an apparent left hamstring injury Sunday while pitching in a simulated game at the Red Sox's alternate training site in Pawtucket, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

The 21-year-old isn't a likely candidate to make his big-league debut in 2020, but he's been making regular simulated-game appearances in Pawtucket as the Red Sox look to keep his development on track. He'll presumably be sent in for more tests as the Red Sox determine the extent of his injury, but Mata looks like he could be at risk of being shut down for the rest of the summer.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Added to pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata joined the Red Sox's player pool Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Mata will give Boston extra pitching depth this season, though he's unlikely to play a major role. The 21-year-old is yet to reach Triple-A and struggled to a 5.03 ERA in 11 starts for Double-A Portland last season, though that figure came with a strong 3.27 xFIP, as his 25.2 percent strikeout rate and 52.1 percent groundball rate offset a poor 10.3 percent walk rate.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Adds fourth pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata added a cutter to his repertoire in 2019, Ian Cundall of SoxProspects.com reports.

Mata had a couple of promising developments in 2019: adding a fourth pitch and cleaning up his mechanics. The delivery still has a lot of effort and may be something that limits his ability to command consistently. The cutter, which some call a slider, gives him a pitch with which to get left-handed hitters out. He had a rocky introduction to Double-A ball last season, but that could be attributed to going beyond previous career highs in innings pitched. His future as a starter depends on his ability to improve command. Mata will likely start at Double-A Portland with a shot to reach Triple-A Pawtucket in 2020.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Throws two scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two over two innings in Thursday's game against the Phillies.

Mata made his first spring start with the major-league club. He's trying to buck a trend in an organization that hasn't had much success developing its own starters. The last homegrown pitcher to win as many as 10 games was Felix Doubront, who did it in 2012 and 2013. Mata dazzled at High-A Salem in 2019 (1.75 ERA in 10 starts) before facing a more challenging environment at Double-A Portland (5.03 ERA in 11 starts). The Red Sox have an open spot at the back end of the rotation and will need a fill-in while Chris Sale (illness) spends the first couple of weeks on the injured list, per Ian Browne of MLB.com. It's unlikely the Red Sox view Mata as a candidate for either of those spots, preferring he gets more seasoning in Portland and possibly hitting Triple-A Pawtucket in 2020.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Invited to big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata received an invitation to the Red Sox's big-league camp Friday.

The 20-year-old will spend a few weeks with Boston's big-league coaching staff, though it might be another year before he's pushing to join the top club for good. In 11 starts at Double-A Portland last season, he posted an unimpressive 5.03 ERA, combining a strong 25.2 percent strikeout rate with a slightly high 10.3 percent walk rate.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata was promoted to Double-A Portland on Monday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Mata spent a month on the injured list with a right shoulder strain, but when healthy this season he's been lights out for High-A Salem with a 1.75 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 52:10 K:BB in 10 starts. The 20-year-old has shown in the lower minors why he's a highly-touted prospect, and he's likely to remain at Portland for the second half of the season.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Starting Friday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata (shoulder) will be activated off the minor-league injured list to start Friday at High-A Salem, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Mata was expected to return to action in mid-May but ultimately ended up missing a full month with the right shoulder strain. The 20-year-old has a 2.15 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB through six starts with Salem this season.

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Returning to action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata (shoulder) will come off the minor-league injured list to start for High-A Salem on Friday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Mata has been on the IL since May 7 with a mild right shoulder strain, but only ended up missing two starts. The 20-year-old has enjoyed a strong start to the season with a 2.15 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB through six starts (29.1 innings).

Red Sox's Bryan Mata: Moves to MiLB injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mata was placed on the minor-league injured list Tuesday with a mild right shoulder strain, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Mata has been off to a great start at High-A Salem with a 2.15 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB over 29.1 innings. The 20-year-old's shoulder stain was described as mild, so he may not require an extended stay on the injured list.
