12/27/2019 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic (Ages 14-18) Michael is a solid and athletic 2021 catching prospect that worked hard all week. Behind the dish, Michael presents a low target with an athletic stance. He has smooth actions to the ball and controls balls in the strike zone. When blocking, he anticipates the ball in the dirt and controls it with his chest. When throwing, Michael has a clean exchange, good footwork, and throws the ball to the right side of the bag. Continuing to improve arm strength will elevate his game to the next level. At the plate, Michael is a contact hitter with a middle approach. He loads his hands back, he gets to balance, and keeps the barrel on plane. Continuing to build strength in his lower half will help him drive the ball with more force. Michael will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
