He did a good job blocking and showed quickness and good pitch recognition. He received well and was able to show quiet actions. At the plate, he has a good approach with a middle of the field focus. He did a good job using his lower at the plate. In game action he was able to find barrels often and got on base multiple times with a couple of RBI's. Matthew is a well-rounded athletic catcher and we hope to see him again as he continues to develop.

12/19/2021 - Official College Recruiting Membership - North Branford, CT Matthew is a young catcher, who will graduate in 2023. He showed many improvements in his game during his last workout. Defensively, Matthew shows quick/fluid footwork, agile range, and he sits in square and athletically. He has a soft/presentable glove, he lets the ball travel deep, and his exchange is clean, throwing with consistency and accuracy to 2B. Pop times were as low as 2.35 seconds to second base. Continuing to add arm strength and added reps will only help abilities behind the plate get better. Offensively, Matthew has a square set up, good balance, and a rhythmic swing.

At the plate, this RHH sets up in an athletic stance and takes a controlled stride. He gets into his load on time and remains centered in his lower half. He rotates his core through well and sprays the ball to all fields. Matthew can barrel up more baseballs by working through a more level swing path. Overall, Matthew is a solid prospect who has the potential to further build upon his skills on the field.

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 (what he can do today), 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. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
