11/07/2013 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition at Pirate City Michael is a freshman OF that showed well, defensively. In his latest Factory outing he showed primarily as an OF that works behind and through balls to throw. He is quick to release and has good length to his arm action. As Michael continues to develop, he should focus on maintaining body control throughout plays to add strength to throws. At the plate, he focused on his swing path and rhythm and timing. He showed a direct/level barrel, and should now focus more on increasing his bat speed. In all - Michael is a hard nosed player that works hard and plays the game the right way.
