11/02/2013 - 2013 Under Armour Futures Series Texas Michael is a big, strong young player with a sweet left-handed swing. He finds the barrel with ease and has natural actions as a hitter. His power shows mostly to RF and RCF at present, though he has the ability to drive balls to the opposite field gap as well. He is excellent through contact and gets good extension. As a catcher, Michael throws well (as low as 1.96 to 2B) with on-line carry. As he quickens his release, he will be even more effective at shutting down the running game. Michael is also an advanced receiver behind the plate with sure hands and the ability to handle plus stuff. Overall, this is a middle-of-the-order LH bat who plays a premium position in the middle of the field.
