Official Scouting Report

  • 5Class Rating
  • CPosition Projection

04/29/2018 - College PREP - Charlottesville, VA Matthew is a solid, athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.06. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times showed a range of 2.17-2.32 with accuracy / carry on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Hands are soft / sure and he tracks balls well through the receiving process but will benefit by presenting a lower target. He uses his body well through the blocking process but needs to get down sooner to center balls out front. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. Hands are loose and work to and through the baseball, creating extension. He makes consistent hard contact with power showing best to the pull side. Matthew has potential with time and room to progress his game.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "present" abilities (tools), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
