07/18/2023 - National Showcase - Sioux Falls, SD Matthew is a tall, solid 3B/RHP who is a prospect on the diamond. At 3B, defensive abilities are outstanding as he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft and presents out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, hitting / power potential are outstanding through a crouched setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 70-71 mph with sinking action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sink. Slider is harder with short break. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 2 years to further develop, Matthew has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
