He has a line drive approach and projects power as he continues to build strength. Matthew is a hard worker who comes to play every day with an above average skill set that continues to improve. He shows that he has the 6th tool, which cannot be taught.

06/05/2016 - National Tryout Plus - Bakersfield, CA Matthew continues to show well on the diamond. Behind the dish, this athletic backstop sits in well and tracks pitches into a soft/sure mitt. Transfer is smooth as he works in-line toward his target at 2B putting his throws on the bag. With the bat, he has quiet/simple actions while standing in with centered balance. He whips the barrel on a short/direct path to the zone, squares the ball up and drives it with some pop when centered. Matthew is solid all-around catcher who should find success as he approaches his senior year.

He threw with a nice clean arm stroke and was consistently on the bag. Offensively, he had a good approach with balance and lower half drive. He generates good bat speed with his direct path and had a pair of singles in game play.

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 (what he can do today), 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. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
