09/26/2018 - Arizona Freshman Fall Classic Michael continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.33 runner. In the OF, he displays smooth / athletic actions. He reads balls well off the bat and utilizes his athletic feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes / angles. Range is a plus as he covers a lot of ground. He works behind the baseball and plays through with momentum to his target and gets rid of the baseball quickly. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate he shows a tall setup and good plate discipline. Hands are quick (82 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best he can be.

07/09/2018 - College PREP - Portland, ME Michael is an athletic/projectable OF who can make things happen. With the bat, this righty stands in with an athletic setup and centered balance. He takes a hack at pitches in the zone, squares the ball up and hits line-drives. More lower 1/2 drive will help to tap into more power potential. In the OF, he is aggressive and takes a quick first step. He works gathers well, has a clean transfer rand works in-line toward his target, firing accurate throws. Working to stay on top of his throws more will help the ball from having a tendency to run. Kelly (2022 grad) has tools with a ton of upside.

08/08/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Trenton, NJ Michael is a talented OF who can swing it. At the plate, this RHH displays smooth rhythm to load with good hand separation. He takes an aggressive hack, engages his lower 1/2, swings on a short path through the zone and creates consistent contact with each pitch. Defensively in the OF, he hustles laterally as he tracks down fly balls hit to his right and left. He comes up with a clean exchange and makes accurate throws to his target. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.

Defense
1. Quick footwork 
2. Arm strength (long toss)
3. Play through 
Offense
1. Improve bat speed
2. Shorter/more direct swing path
3. Get extension

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.
