Michael showed good athleticism at both positions during his time in Arizona. In the OF, Michael has a good 1st step to the ball, he tracks well, and uses 2 hands to catch. He makes plays consistently and throws with an accurate arm to his cut off man. On the mound, Michael has good confidence, a FB touching 66 MPH, and he shows good direction toward home plate. He is around the zone with his pitches and goes after hitters. Offensively, Michael has a square/athletic stance, fast bat speed, and he hits from a strong base. He has good potential, is open to make adjustments, and he also shows a good eye for the strike zone.
