05/14/2017 - College PREP - Poughkeepsie, NY Matthew is an athletic catcher who has a strong lower half. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line to his target. Pop times showed in the 2.25 range with accuracy to his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Hands are firm as he presents a low target well out front, and tracks balls in. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to get down quicker and cover holes. At the plate, he shows as a switch hitter but projects best from the right side. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner to be on time. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 3 years to further develop, Matthew has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
