12/27/2018 - College PREP - Rindge, NH Matthew is a long, athletic, 1st baseman with nice skills. Defensively, Matthew has good pre-pitch actions, active feet, and he presents his glove well. He takes good angles to the ball, makes plays consistently, and has a clean exchange with consistency to his target. Looser actions and playing more through the ball can help defensive grades get even better. Offensively, Matthew has an athletic set-up, good balance, and he swings aggressively. He has fast bat speed, a direct barrel to the ball, and he makes square contact. If Matthew can loosen his grip and tap into more lower body, hitting grades can improve.
