Cleveland opened eyes pitching for the Northeast Yankees Area Code team as a rising senior. Prior to the Area Code Games, Cleveland pitched in an exhibition game against a team from the Futures Collegiate League, and his fastball reached 94 mph and sat comfortably in the low 90s. He stands at 6-foot-5 and has an easy delivery, though he has a long arm swing and can struggle to repeat his mechanics. Cleveland's velocity backed up at times this spring, and he sat more in the upper 80s. His offspeed stuff needs lots of work; his curveball is far from average at present. Cleveland has limited exposure to high-level coaching and is a solid athlete. He is considered to be very signable, though he is committed to play at Florida Southwestern JC.

#Mets get Matt Cleveland (CT) in 12th. Really good at @MetBallClassic. Athletic righty w/ upside. Raw, secondary needs work. #mlbdraft

Mets roll the dice on Matt Cleveland. Good body and flashes of FB velo, but a long way to go with the breaking ball. Upside pick. #mlbdraft

I like this pick a lot. Plenty of upside.

Cleveland probably would have gone top three rounds with a better Spring, so he may cost a bit.

I think we have the money for that, so that's good. I'm I liking this day 3 so far.

With the caveat that I know nothing about anything, this seems like a very good pick at this point in the draft.

Pre-Draft Article

Highlights:
-Dad from Bronx, Yankees his favorite team
-"The whip in his arm, athletic ability and potential, yes, he's very draftable," Windsor coach Joe Serfass said. "It's just a question of what round."
- "Fastball is my best pitch," said Cleveland (2-2 with a 1.93 ERA). "I like dominating."
- Committed to Florida Southwestern State
- He says he'd consider bypassing college, depending on where he gets drafted. The higher the round, the greater the chance he'll go pro. "[Professional baseball is] where I want to be," he said.
