02/12/2021 - Baseball Factory Opening Day Classic (HS - West) Matthew is an athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. Quick lateral movements allow him to center/deaden pitches in the dirt off of a soft chest. Runners will not want to test his cannon for an arm (87 mph velocity) with impressive pop times of 1.96. Offensively, he continues to shine through an open setup. He has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage, resulting in a barrel explosion (90 mph exit velocity) with the ball screaming off of his barrel. He is aggressive as he attacks fastball early in the count. At the event, he was 4 for 6 with 2 3B. Matthew has a big upside and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
