GENERAL: A local product...Left-handed strikeout pitcher with great size...One of the top high school pitchers in the area the past two years.
BEFORE SIENA: A three-sport athlete at Broadalbin-Perth, playing baseball, basketball, and soccer...Struck out 138 batters in 85 innings pitched as a junior and senior...An All-State selection as a senior following a year where he allowed just 36 hits in 44 1/3 innings pitched.
ROSSI ON GAGE: "Matt is a big, strong lefty who had a solid fall. He has a very high ceiling, and we believe he can eventually become one of the mainstays of the staff. He has unlimited potential."
