02/19/2018 - College PREP - Brentwood (Long Island), NY Matthew is a strong catcher who will graduate in 2019. Behind the plate, Matthew has efficient footwork, quiet actions, and he tracks the ball well. He presents his glove, uses his chest to block, and throws with accuracy from a short arm action to 2nd base. Pop times were clocked from 2.09-2.2. Catching can improve with a more square set-up, sitting lower, and work on blocking. Offensively, Matthew has an open stance, a proper load, and he swings in good rhythm. He has good balance, plus bat speed, and he makes squares contact with good pop to the pull side. A more square stride and letting the ball travel deeper can help hitting numbers get even better.
