12/27/2013 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City McCarthy is a hardworking catcher with a positive attitude and plus makeup. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line to his target through a solid setup and clean transfer / exchange. Pop times where in the 2.30 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength and work to get rid of the ball quicker. Receiving / blocking skills show as playable tools that will play well at the next level as he continues to improve. At the plate, Matt shows a squared setup with balance. Hands are loose and he works to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields through a solid line drive approach. He makes consistent contact with hitting grades improving as he softens front side. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. At the event, he was 3 for 8 with a 2B.
