GENERAL: Talented left-handed pitcher who broke onto the scene with solid freshman and sophomore seasons before being hampered by injuries last year...If healthy, will be expected to challenge for spot in the weekend rotation...Came into his own as a sophomore, again earning a spot in the weekend rotation...Locates and mixes all his pitches extremely well...Has deceptive velocity (mid, to upper-80's) and keeps hitters off balance...Comes from one of the top high school programs in Pennsylvania.

AS A JUNIOR: Appeared in six games, all starts before suffering a season-ending injury in mid-April...Pitched strong in season debut, surrendering just five hits and one earned run with season-high four strikeouts over four innings at Florida (2/23)...Earned key back-to-back MAAC wins over Niagara (3/22) and Saint Peter's (3/29)...In final three appearances, went 2-0 with 5.06 ERA...Held runners at bay, allowing only two stolen bases in five attempts against him.

AS A SOPHOMORE: Started 10 games, ending the season with a 3.51 ERA...Threw 56.1 innings and struck out 42 batters, which tied for the team-lead...Pitched a team-high two complete games...Won three of his last five games...Allowed one earned run on one hit and struck out six in six innings against Manhattan (3/31)...Gave up one run on two hits in seven innings pitched while fanning eight to win his last game of the season against Canisius (5/12)...Held opponents to a measly .233 batting average.

AS A FRESHMAN: Led all freshmen with 11 starts and 12 appearances...Posted a 4.79 ERA and a 4-4 record...Picked up three complete game victories in MAAC play...Tossed 37 strikeouts and walked just 34 batters in 67.2 innings...Struck out nine and gave up only one earned run in a complete four-hit game win against LeMoyne (4/16)...Was named MAAC Pitcher of the Week (4/18) and MAAC Rookie of the Week (5/1).

BEFORE SIENA: Named All-League All-Star as a junior and senior ...Established a combined 9-3 record with a 2.33 ERA in 13 games during his senior and summer seasons...Pitched 77 1/3 innings during those seasons, striking out 71 batters.

ROSSI ON MOBERG: "Matt has been plagued by injuries since his sophomore year. This is a big year for him and if he can get out of the gate quickly he will be a valuable asset. If he is effective, he can be one of the best pitchers in the conference."
