10/28/2012 - College PREP - Atlanta, GA Michael is a solid, athletic OF that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.30 60 time. He utilizes his quick / athletic feet well as he takes an aggressive approach in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through well with momentum to his target. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy / carry on his throws. At the plate, Rookard shows a balanced approach with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He shows a feel for the barrel with the baseball jumping off his bat when centered, 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. With 2 years to further develop, Michael has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
