03/09/2014 - College PREP - Hightstown, NJ Michael is a smooth fielding switch hitter with an athletic build. Defensively with the glove, he has quick prep footwork and comes to get the ball. He fields the ground ball cleanly playing through working from right to left. He has a clean exchange and fires throws with carry across the diamond. At the plate, he shows an tall/open setup with good rhythm. He has a smooth cut and pulls the pitch on the inner 1/2 with pop. Driving his lower 1/2 will help to increase pop off of his barrel. Batista has the skill-set which will provide success in this his Senior season.
