09/16/2018 - College PREP - Kansas City, MO Matthew is a tall, lean catcher who will graduate in 2020. Behind the dish, he utilizes his feet well in working in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times show a range of 2.32-2.51 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. He displays a soft glove and sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body through the blocking process but will benefit by creating better angles to center balls out front. At the plate, he shows a tall, squared setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 2 years to further develop, Matthew has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
