Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • LHP/1BPosition Projection

06/24/2013 - College PREP - Cincinnati, OH Matt is a LHP/1B who has a tall pitcher's build. On the bump, this LHP has a 3-pitch mix and smooth actions. He maintains good tempo and gets to a tall balance point driving off of his lower 1/2. FB ranges from 74-79 mph and shows slight downhill action and some run. CB is best off-speed pitch and is very sharp. At 1B, Matt is a big target and will get to almost every throw. He has a smooth glove and fields the ball out in front. At the plate, this lefty shows a tall setup and solid load. He has pop to his pull-side and is a contact type hitter, putting the ball in play. Shortening his swing path and driving his backside lower 1/2 will help to increase pop off of the bat. As a 2015 grad, Matt still has a couple of years to fine tune his skills.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
