11/03/2013 - College PREP - Shreveport, LA Michael is a tall, solid 3B that will graduate in 2016. At the plate is where Minamyer shows best through a squared / upright setup. Hands are loose and aggressive working through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. At 3B, foot speed is slightly above average as indicated by his 7.47 60 time. He displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active / aggressive as he works to square up balls and displays clean hands. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to work around and plays through the ball well with his body while presenting hands more out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. With 3 years to further develop, Michael has abilities with time and room to continue to improve.
