10/03/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Seattle, WA Michael is an athletic catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He uses his body during the blocking process, but needs to work to get body down sooner. Pop times showed in the 2.26 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the ball quicker. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying solid hitting abilities with well above average power potential through a squared setup. He is aggressive as he attacks balls through a level swing path. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and he stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Michael has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
