07/18/2023 - National Showcase - Sioux Falls, SD Matthew is a lean 2B/RHP who has a promising future on the diamond. At 2B, defensive abilities are well above average 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, continues to shine through a crouched setup. Hands are quick 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 72-76 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with arm side run. 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 3 years to further develop, Matthew has potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
