It’s been a whirlwind few years for Calgary’s Matt Lloyd. A 15th round pick of the Cincinnati Reds in the 2019 MLB Draft, he spent his first pro summer split between the Rookie League Billings Mustangs and Single-A Dayton Dragons.
2020 was wiped out by COVID, and he split 2021 between the Red’s Arizona Complex League squad and Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts. The Dawgs Academy and Okotoks Dawgs product began the 2022 season right where it left off with the Lookouts, but was shelved 20 games in with an ankle injury. He’s spent the last few months getting it back into game shape, showing his progress regularly through Instagram stories. We caught up with the 26-year-old to talk about the challenges of the injury, his mindset throughout, and where he’d like to be in 2023.
