As for Mather, the 6-foot-4 former Cardinals prospect reminds a lot of people (including me) of Jayson Werth physically. Mather is a big guy, rangy and wiry strong, and he crushed some balls during BP today, showing the pop that put him on the cusp of a regular job with the Cardinals before injury woes.
That's quite a comp, and I think it's a serious one on his part. Of course, he's only talking about physical appearance and not ability, so when I reread it I came back down to earth just a bit. Still, let's jump to conclusions.
