11/08/2018 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City (Ages 14-18) Matthew is a SS/OF prospect who showcased his skills at the Select Training & Competition at Pirate City. In the field, Matthew shows active footwork and flashes good lateral range. He fields the ball out in front of his body and makes a clean exchange, keeping his throws accurate and on-line to his target. Getting into an athletic fielding position can help Matthew improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and maintains center balance. He works to barrel up the baseball and makes sold contact. Matthew can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With three more years to develop, Matthew has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
