WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
Uganda had never had a pro baseball player until the Dodgers signed two players from the country in January 2022.  The Pirates made it three by signing Matoma.  He has a ways to go, as you’d expect, but the Pirates consider him a legitimate prospect.  His fastball already touches 93 mph, and he throws a slider with good spin and a change.  The team likes his arm speed, athleticism and work ethic.
