    by Jay LeBlancPublished September 2, 2008

Unwilling to pass up the chance to land a potential staff ace, the Orioles took Matusz with the fourth overall pick and signed him to a major league deal including a $3.2 million bonus just hours before the deadline. With his projectable frame, collegiate experience, four-pitch arsenal and impeccable control, Matusz has all the makings of a future star. By Jay LeBlanc.
