07/07/2020 - 2020 Baseball Factory's National West Showcase
Matty performed well at the Baseball Factory West Showcase. He is a physical (6'2"/200) OF prospect who plays aggressively and with an air of confidence. At the plate, he uses his strong core to make a clean move through contact that generates high impact from the barrel (96 mph exit velocity). He utilizes the whole field well and has some present power with even more on the way. Defensively, Matty uses his speed (6.89) to close on balls and has an accurate arm that can play at any of the OF spots. This is a hard-working player who should be an impact guy at the next level.
