08/02/2018 - Baseball Factory Pro Select Training at Historic Dodgertown (Ages 12-14) Matthew is a lean 1B who will graduate in 2022. At the plate he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He shows good plate discipline and stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is soft / sure and he consistently showed the ability to pick balls out of the dirt. Feet are aggressive as he attacks balls through a low approach. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but he will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. With 4 years to further develop, Matthew has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
