Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • 3B/RHPPosition Projection

01/18/2019 - 2019 Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament Micah is a strong, athletic 3B/RHP with a bright future ahead on the diamond. At 3B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with his body. Hands / feet work well together through the fielding process. He moves well laterally, displaying range and soft / sure hands. Throws are accurate with on line zip (90 mph velocity) across the diamond. At the plate he continues to shine, displaying tremendous hitting abilities with excellent power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick / explosive (83 mph exit velocity) generating bat speed through a direct / level swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, arm action is loose, free, and quick. Fastball shows a range of 80-85 mph on a downhill plane with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with sharp break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup, showing a plus feel for pitch. Off speed stuff show as outstanding pitches that will get outs at the next level. Control is outstanding as he works fast, attacking hitters and through strikes with all his pitches. With his baseball tools, Micah will get looks from the top collegiate coaches, possibly as a two-way guy.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
