Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He uses his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Pop times showed in 2.18 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss. At 2B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active in working around and playing through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents out front. He utilizes his quick feet (7.25 60 time) in covering a lot of ground in the MIF. At the plate, he shows as a switch hitter with similar abilities from both sides.

Lower half works well through the swing and shows a feel for the barrel. With 4 years to further develop, Matthew has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
