06/28/2009 - Team One West 2009 Matthew did a fine job showing his potential in this showcase. He showed an above average arm from behind the plate ranging his POP times from 2.12-2.2.21 seconds. He showed consistent balance and adequate alignment through his mechanics. He received with slight stiffness in his glove, as he reaches for the ball. He will benefit by using more sway in his lower body and by allowing the ball more depth before he catches it. As a hitter, Matthew displays a short, level bat path, and good extension through contact. He is a strong hitter that can hit the ball through the gaps. With work on a softer load and stride, he will improve his consistency in centering the baseball, taking advantage of his strength and gap power. Matthew is a fairly consistent and fundamental player, that will have a shot to impact college baseball.
