06/14/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Rosemont (Chicago), IL Matthew is a lean, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest. Receiving / blocking skills show as solid tools that will play well at the next level. Pop times showed in 2.11 range with accuracy and zip (85 mph velocity) on his throws. At the plate, he continues to shine displaying well above average hitting / power potential through an open setup. He is aggressive as he attacks balls through a level swing path. Hands are quick (87 mph exit velocity) and he has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. With 2 years to further develop, Matthew has an upside and will make an immediate impact at the next level with his offensive / defensive abilities.
