12/27/2021 - Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic Michael continued to shine in his baseball abilities at the Recruiting classic showcase. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. He moves well laterally with range improving as he increases foot quickness. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Lower half works well as he transfers weight into a firm front side. At the event, he was 4 for 8 with a 2B. On the mound, arm strength has improved as he threw his top velocity to date at 76 mph. Fastball shows a range of 74-76 mph with tailing action. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Off speed stuff show as quality pitches that will get outs. Control is solid as he attacks hitters and throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and great team player.
