Looser actions and a softer glove will help catching skills improve. In the OF, Jon-Micah has active feet, a presentable glove, and he shows good hustle to the ball. He fields cleanly, plays through, and has a quick release to his cut off man. At the plate, Jon-Micah has a square set-up, good balance, and he tracks the ball well. He swings on plane and shows the ability to work the ball gap to gap. Hitting can further improve with with a looser grip, better rhythm, and letting the ball travel deeper into the hitting zone.

Jon-Micah is a tall, lanky C/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying well above average hitting / power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and stays inside the ball, displaying gap-to-gap pop. Behind the plate, pop times showed in the 2.15 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He tracks balls well and sticks balls in the zone and utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to get body down sooner. In the OF, he displays clean actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He will benefit by working to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Jon-Micah has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
