10/03/2021 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Lake Zurich (Chicago), IL Michael is an athletic 2B/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. At 2B, defensive abilities are solid as he displays smooth / fluid actions. Feet are active as he works to square ball and plays through with his body. Glove action is soft / sure and presents well out front. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind but needs to play through more, creating momentum to his target. He moves well laterally and utilizes his foot quickness (6.94 60 time) in covering a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Lower half works well through the swing and shows a feel for the barrel. With 2 years to further develop, Michael has potential with time and room to progress his game.
