07/18/2017 - College PREP - Sauget (St. Louis), IL Matthew is a lean, lanky LHP/1B who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.03. At the plate is where he shows best, through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and utilizes his lower half with baseball jumping off the bat when centered through a line drive approach. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is soft / sure but will benefit by presenting more out front. Feet are active as he attacks balls, playing through well. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. He shows good tempo through a strong balance point. Fastball showed a range of 75-78 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 1/7 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Control is solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Matthew has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
