01/15/2016 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 14-18) Matthew is a 5'11/155 lbs SS/RHP that continues to show strength and progress on the diamond. Defensively, he moved well to make plays with a soft glove and threw with some arm strength across the diamond, hitting a new raw velo high of 81. His lateral movement was a plus and with more consistent pre-pitch footwork will continue to improve. Offensively, he had loose hands to hit with good rhythm, and he flashed an ability to use his hips with his hands for added pop. Focusing on controlling his swing, while maintaining his aggressive approach is key to elevating his offensive skill. On the mound, he threw his FB and 12/6 CB with overall smooth rhythm in his delivery. He displays projection when he cleaned up his direction and stayed in his legs which will continue to add velo. In all - Matthew is a sophomore that has good promise as he continues to implement drill work to strengthen his game.
