09/25/2016 - Interactive Video Program - New Orleans, LA Michael is a solid 2-way player as an OF/LHP. In the OF, he takes aggressive routes as he tracks down fly balls. He gets around on GB's and plays through the ball towards his target. On the mound, this lefty delivers a 3 pitch mix. He commands his FB that runs in on hitters and throws a deceptive CB that has depth. At the plate, Michael displays an athletic load.
