03/29/2015 - College PREP - Pittsburgh, PA Michael continues to work hard on his skills. With the bat, this LH swinger shows balanced approach with patience, waiting for his pitch. Rhythm in his hands allow for on-time separation as he connects and drives the ball up the middle of the field. Working to get more extension through contact and finish will help to increase pop off of his barrel. At 1B, Michael hustles to his right and left getting behind the GB's. He is sure handed and makes the plays consistently. Continuing to develop his footwork/agility will help to improve his skills at 1B. On the mound, this lefty has a repeatable delivery coming from a 3/4 arm slot. FB tops out in the mid 60's as he throws it for strikes. Breaking ball has 1/7 shape with early break.

09/28/2014 - College PREP - Pittsburgh, PA Michael worked out at both 1B and on the mound during his workout in Pittsburgh. Defensively, Michael has good body control to the ball, playable footwork, and he moves well around the bag. He fields out front, gains momentum toward his target, and throws with a clean arm action with accuracy to his target. If Michael can lighten and quicken his feet, and work on his backhand, defense can get better. On the mound, Michael stands over the rubber well, he keeps a still head, and separates on time. He rotates well through to his target, and finishes with his chest out over his front knee. Mound effectiveness can improve if Michael can loosen his arm action, get more extension, and get on top of the baseball. Offensively, Michael has good balance, a square set-up, and he can hit to all fields. He has an activate load and keeps his hands inside the baseball well. A sooner stride, more lower 1/2, and better extension will spike hitting numbers.

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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
