Matthew showed solid improvements in his overall game during his last workout in Erie. Feet are light and quick with solid body control to the baseball. Matthew has sure hands, gains momentum toward his target, and he throws with carry from a good arm action to his target. At the plate, Matthew raised both his hitting and power grades. He has good balance, fluid actions, and direct hands to the ball. He has good bat speed, solid barrel accuracy, and he uses his lower body well.

Matthew is a smooth fielding SS who solid plus abilities. Defensively, he shows good pre-pitch setup and moves well laterally with fluid footwork. Matt presents his glove and field the ball out in front, helping to avoid the in-between hop. At the plate, Silay shows a solid setup and good rhythm. He lets the ball travel into the zone and hits the ball where it's pitched, driving it to all fields. He creates good extension through the ball at contact and has some pop off of his barrel. As only a 2016 grad, Matthew still has a lot of time to continue developing his game.
