Matt Simonds is a 2007 3B/P/1B with a 6'2'', 195 lb. frame from Atlanta, Georgia, who attends Pace Academy. He is a tall, strong, and athletic player with upside as a two-way prospect. Defensively he has nice footwork at the corner infield positions. He has solid arm strength on his throws with good accuracy. Simonds is a very good defensive third baseman. At the plate he is a right handed hitter with quick hands from a low hand set. Simonds gets good leverage at the point of contact showing very good present power. He uses the whole field hitting line drives all over. Simonds has huge power projection that should allow him to be a middle of the order run producer at the next level. On the mound he throws from a 3/4 arm slot with a balanced delivery. He gets good running action on his heavy fastball that topped out at 85 mph. He gets good fade and sinking action on his changeup at 74 mph. His live arm and power bat make Simonds a top level two-way prospect. He is also a good student.
