02/17/2013 - College PREP - Middletown (Hartford), CT Michael is a young 1st baseman who hits from the left side. Defensively, Michael has sure hands, playable feet, and he plays low to the ground. He keeps the ball in front, his exchange is clean, and he throws with accuracy from a long arm action. Quicker actions, fielding further out front, and added arm strength will improve defense. Offensively, Michael has a square set-up, he tracks the ball well, and he swings aggressively. He has a level swing and puts the bat on the ball. More square feet, not flying open, and finishing his swing properly will raise hitting numbers.
