09/13/2015 - College PREP - Fresno, CA Matthew is a skilled 2-way player (C/OF) who has an athletic build. Behind the dish, he sits in well with quiet actions and presents a low target. He sticks pitches in the zone and frames well. He hustles laterally and gets his body on pitches in the dirt. Transfer/exchange is clean with pop times of 2.40. Gaining more ground while 'staying low to throw' will help to lower pop times. In the OF, Matthew is aggressive and takes solid routes/angles to track down fly-balls. He works into position behind the fly-ball, secures it with 2-hands and plays through the ball toward his target. Offensively, Herring shows a balanced setup with rhythm to load. He swings against a firm front side while engaging his lower 1/2. He barrels the ball up and hits line-drives. Leveling out his swing will help to increase contact consistency which will take his offensive skills to the next level. Only a 2019 grad - Matthew is a very talented, versatile player who can make things happen on the diamond.
