Matt is an athletic RHP/3B prospect. At 3B, Matt has active pre pitch movement and creates angles on ground balls. He has a clean exchange and makes accurate throws around the infield. At the plate, Matt has a tall and open stance. He has a quiet head and a middle of the field approach. Continuing to attack the inside part of the ball and using his lower half will allow him to keep making hard contact to all fields. On the bump, Matt displays his ability to separate his hands on time and get good extension over his front side when he finishes. His downhill action allows him to get run on his fastball and pound the bottom half of the zone with his off speed pitches as well. We hope to see this young prospect's progress in the future.
