10/18/2020 - Official Player Development Membership - Birmingham, AL Michael is an athletic C/1B 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 through the blocking process but needs to get down sooner. Pop times showed in 2.32 range with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (80 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach, flashing gap-to-gap pop. With 5 years to further develop, Michael has the makings of a special type player with time and room to progress his game.
