Matt Chapman’s Style
Chapman has a reputation of being an elite defender who has exceptional range, arm strength and arm accuracy.
His arm strength allows him to play at a deeper depth to field a hard-hit ball heading down his right side. He uses a two-handed gather on forehand, and one-handed backhand with a basketball defensive crouch to prevent the ball from sailing.
His former El Toro High School teammate is fellow MLB third baseman Nolan Arenado. During the off-season, Chapman is roommates with Philadelphia Phillies catcher Garrett Stubbs in California.
