12/27/2012 - Pirate City Christmas Camp and Tournament In Matt's most recent Factory outing, he showed an increase in his arm strength. The outfielder is consistent with his fly ball mechanics and has a take charge attitude. Increasing his jumps, and the efficiency of his routes to get through balls, will help to add carry on his throws and make him a solid defender. At the dish, from his tall setup, he is showing consistent timing with a contact approach and good head control. Becoming more consistent with a short swing path, will allow for greater barrel accuracy and a higher frequency of contact. Matt needs to also be cautious of exposing his front hip too early. Overall, Matt is an aggressive player on the base paths and constantly plays the game with good energy.
