09/04/2020 - HS All-Region Tournament
Matt continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.23 runner. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are strong (83 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. At 1B, defensive abilities are well above average as he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 77-80 mph with sinking action. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program.

Matt is an athletic and talented 2021 2-way prospect. On the bump, Matt separates on time, finds a balance point, and has a clean arm action. He stays inline toward the plate and works north to south in his delivery. He sinks his fastball, he has a good depth on his curveball, and throws his changeup down in the zone. At 1B, Matt is on time with his prep step, he works off the bag well, and makes accurate throws. He’s a big target and has good actions when picking balls out of the dirt. At the plate, Matt starts in a squared stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He loads knee to knee, creates backside drive with his lower half, and looks to hit the ball to all fields. Matt will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
