07/06/2016 - College PREP - Trenton, NJ Michael is a tall, strong kid who looks the part of a stud shortstop prospect at the next level. He really hangs his hat on his defense at short as he shows uncanny ability there for such a young kid. He takes good angles to the ball, making his range extensive and displays great hands to handle anything. He has a good arm for the shortstop position and makes consistently accurate throws to his target. Being aggressive to balls will help Michael extend his range even further and will also give him more time to throw on routine plays, further cementing him as an excellent defender. Michael is no slouch at the plate either, as he shows a good feel for getting the bat to the ball. He does a good job of keeping his hands moving to stay on time and make consistent contact. He also shows flashes of raw power that will start to manifest itself more as Michael matures. Learning to trust his hands more will let Michael stay back longer and handle all pitches in all spots and spray line drives to all fields. This is a very exciting prospect who we can't wait to see continue to mature as a player.
