08/12/2018 - College PREP - Wilmington, DE Michael is a strong, athletic 2019 prospect with positional versatility. He can really run which fits his profiles as a contact hitter and outfielder. He can go get it in the field with active footwork and quick reads off the bat. He fields low and with soft hands, playing through to his target. He can make all the plays at short with smooth actions and rhythm through the ball. At the dish, he is a line drive hitter who delivers the barrel to the ball with simple mechanics.

Feet are active as he works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with momentum to his target. He shows good game awareness and does a nice job of backing up bases. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program and work to get rid of the baseball quicker. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.

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.
