Matthew is a solid R/R 2B. Defensively, he shows active footwork and smooth actions. He has a clean transfer and fields the ball cleanly. At the plate, this righty displays a quiet setup with good rhythm. He gets back into a solid loaded position and swings on a level path, using the whole field. More lower 1/2 drive will help to increase power at the plate. Overall - as only a 2017 grad, Matthew projects well in the infield and with added size and strength has potential to be quite a player.
