New York Mets rookie Steven Matz impressed on Sunday with his left hand, tossing 7.2 innings while striking out six in his first MLB start.
It turns out the 24-year-old isn't bad with his right hand, either. But unlike fellow rookie hurler Pat Venditte, Matz can't pitch with both hands. Instead, he uses his left hand to pitch and his right hand to spin.
As demonstrated in several Vine videos, Matz is quite talented at spinning objects on his finger. He can do basketballs, iPads, enormous pillows and even pots. Check it out:
Matz can even toss the pillow to another person, in this case fellow Mets hurler Jacob deGrom.
The multi-talented Matz isn't a bad hitter, as he went 3-for-3 from the plate in his debut.
It will be interesting to see how Matz balances the weight of expectations, because his stellar debut has many Mets fans hopeful. Matz along with deGrom, Matt Harvey and Noah Syndergaard form one of the best young pitching rotations in MLB.
