He keeps the ball in front, works the double play well, and his exchange is clean. Matt has a short arm action, and he throws with average strength to his target.

On the mound, Matt has a short / loose arm action, a tall balance point, and he works quickly. He has level shoulders, good direction toward home, and he hides the ball well. A longer back arm action, not flying open, and finishing off his pitches more will help mound effectiveness improve.
