11/09/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Matthew is a lean OF who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 60 time of 7.39. In the OF, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / actions. He utilizes his athletic feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles and utilizes two hands well through the fielding process. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a simple, level path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel, flashing gap-to-gap pop. Mental makeup is outstanding as he has a positive attitude, is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be. With 3 years to further develop, Matthew has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
