12/01/2019 - College PREP - Lynwood (Chicago), IL Matthew is a solid, athletic, 2-way player who plays SS and RHP. Defensively, Matthew has efficient footwork and he makes plays on balls hit his way. He fields squarely, his exchange is clean, and he throws with a high 3/4 arm slot across the diamond. Infield skills can improve if Matthew can field further out in front of his body and quicken his exchange/release. On the mound, Matthew has good balance and he works on a downhill plane. He separates his hands on time, works in good tempo, and keeps a still head on target. A looser arm action, better extension, and a more complete finish will help mound effectiveness improve. At the plate, Matthew has a square/athletic stance, a short stride, and a still head. He has some bat speed, tracks well, and works the middle of the field. Improved timing, barrel accuracy, and more lower 1/2 will help spike hitting.
