12/11/2020 - Baseball Factory Academic All-American Tournament Michael is an athletic and projectable 3B/RHP who showed well at the Academic All-America Tournament. At the 3B position, he works into a square/athletic fielding position and tracks GB's into his mitt. Exchange is quick with strength & accuracy on his throws across the diamond. At the plate, he shows an active load working through his lower half. He has improved his power (84 mph exit velo) while producing consistent contact, favoring his pull side. He has a good eye for the zone, drawing 2 walks at the event. On the mound, Michael showed exceptional control of the fastball (78-80 mph) pounding the bottom of the zone. He displays confidence with sound mechanics while working from the stretch. Developing an off-speed pitch will help make him that much more effective on the mound. Improving since his last event, Michael shows he has the work ethic and desire to play at the next level.
