08/03/2014 - College PREP - Council Bluffs (Omaha), IA Matt is an athletic 2B that will graduate in 2015. Foot speed is above average as indicated by his 7.25 60 time. At the plate, is where he shows best, displaying slightly above average hitting abilities with solid power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed and work through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered and works to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields, showing gap to gap power. Power numbers will continue to improve as he works to use his lower half more. At 2B, defensive grades are solid as well as he works to square balls up and displays soft/sure hands. He moves well laterally, flashing range and shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds of the double play. Throws are accurate with carry but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. Matt has potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his tools as he continues to improve.
