Weekly Check In: Jorge Mateo

Jorge Mateo is stealing bases like (insert some catchy analogy here). Mateo has now eclipsed the 60 stolen base plateau with the Charleston Riverdogs and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Could Mateo conceivably steal or approach 100 stolen bases in 2015? Maybe.

Mateo has slowed down his pace a bit from when he was chasing down Billy Hamilton’s single-season stolen base record in minor league baseball but has still been stealing bases at an impressive clip. Mateo is likely to finish the season at Charleston before making the jump to Class-A Advanced in 2016 with the Tampa Yankees although New York could decide to get aggressive with the 20 year old and bring him up sooner. If the team does that though they will have to do it soon as the second half of the season in MiLB is well underway.
