Now playing right field for the Reds: Unknown

Mets pitching prospect Steven Matz had one of the best debuts of all-time during Sunday's game against the Reds. Fans, announcers and, in particular, Grandpa Matz were thrilled by his big day on the mound and at the plate.

Unfortunately, Matz's performance upstaged the first professional game for a top prospect in the Cincinnati Reds system. He plays right field and wears No. 30 on his uniform -- perhaps in honor of another (former) Reds outfielder. We don't know much else about him, hence, his name:

Unknown was quickly subbed out for Jason Bourgeois, without even a chance to field or bat. Someday, we will witness the unknown talents of Unknown (maybe unknowningly) and we will all be the better for it.

UPDATE: Unknown's locker has been spotted in Cincinnati's clubhouse:

"Of course, the fans in New York will let you know about it," Bourgeois said Monday when back at Great American Ball Park. "I'll make a name for myself. I love that stuff. It keeps me motivated."
