07/10/2015 - California Select Training & Competition - Session 1 Matthew showed as a RHP/C at the event with a promising future on the diamond at both positions. At the plate he has improved hitting abilities through an athletic setup. He works through a strong lower half and has swing in his swing with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Hands are loose and work inside the ball, utilizing all fields, displaying gap to gap pop. At the event, he was 4 for 9 with a 2B. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the low 2.5 range with pop times continuing to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Receiving / blocking show as playable tools that will play well at the next level as he continues to improve. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 67-68 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 10/4 shape with gradual break. He throws a knuckleball that displays good downward / sinking action. Stock to the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength, works to throw more strikes and develops better off speed pitch. Mental makeup is a plus as he shows good leadership behind the plate, is very coachable, and works hard to be the best player he can be.
