The new Mike Lowell?
Ask around about Matt Dominguez and the name that pops up on a regular basis is Mike Lowell.
Dominguez, Florida’s first-round pick in 2007, is a slick-fielding 19-year-old third baseman. His style of play reminds the team of Lowell, the former Marlin who is now with Boston.
When drafted, Dominguez drew comparisons to Washington’s Ryan Zimmerman.
On Friday, Dominguez showed some bat speed, too. He had a challenge, facing live pitching from Ricky Nolasco. While Dominguez is a few years away from being big league ready, he is has the potential to move very quickly through the system.
