07/16/2008 - College PREP - Santa Barbara, CA Matt shows versatility in the field showing skills in the outfield and infield. As an infielder he shows good preliminary movements and good feet to the ball as he moves well in all directions. He has soft hands upon fielding ground balls, but will need to improve on centering the ball in his body when fielding. He shows a tendency to be a bit stiff and upright on his throws. In the outfield Matt displayed a low approach to the ball, but showed a delayed read on balls off the bat. His throws were slightly above average even though he cuts off his throwing motion prematurely. As a hitter Matt showed vision and patience in the strike zone, and he did a good job of hitting on top of the ball. He will improve his swing by eliminating his shoulders from his swing and by keeping his hands inside the ball and through the hitting zone longer. Overall, Matt's skills will improve with added strength as he develops and matures into his body. A strength program will be beneficial and should help him attain his goals.
