Matthew Clopton is a 2015 OF/LHP with a 5-7 180 lb. frame from East Point, GA who attends Woodward Academy. Clopton has a medium sized frame with a thick stocky build. Defensively he has developing footwork to the ball with developing outfield actions. He throws with a long arm action and has arm strength up to 75 MPH. At the plate, Clopton starts with an open stance and uses a hand load to start his swing. He has a lower hand set and raises and wraps to get loaded. Clopton has some hand quickness and some bat speed and is short to the ball. He showed some pop to the pullside and looks to drive the ball. Clopton pitches from a high 3/4 arm slot with a shorter arm action He throws a 12/6 curveball at 61 MPH that he has feel for. Good student.

Matt Clopton is a 2015 LHP/OF with a 5-7 180 lb. frame from East Point, GA who attends Woodward Academy. Short build with good compact strength. High hand high leg raise delivery, over the top arm slot, good lower half drive to the plate, tends to open very early and loses leverage and velocity. Fastball topped at 72 mph, gets both good cutting and sinking life consistently. Big breaking curveball at times, inconsistent release point, nice sink on his change up. Throws strikes and mixes it up, has an idea how to pitch. Left handed hitter, short quick swing, keeps hands close to body, has some strength and swings hard, ball comes off well when squared, some gap power. 7.45 runner, lacks outfield throwing mechanics but showed his athleticism with a great game catch in centerfield.
