Michael is an OF in the 2023 class. In the field, he has effective feet and gets to the baseball well. Fields in a low position and redirects the baseball with an over-the-top release. Has arm strength (84 velo) and accuracy to his targets. As a hitter, he begins in an athletic set-up and uses a square stride. Has fact hands (79 exit velo) and generates hard contact to all fields. Working to keep his hands from launch to swing, will eliminate downwards movements and more balance. Overall, Michael is a solid prospect in the 2023 class who scouts feel will be on a college roster in two years.
02/16/2020 - College PREP - Cypress (Los Angeles), CA
Michael is an athletic and talented 2023 2-way prospect. On the bump, Michael gathers over the rubber, he separates on time, and he rotates toward his target. He throws his fastball for strikes, he has good depth on his curveball, and he has some feel for his changeup. At the plate, Michael starts in an athletic stance, he loads his hands back into the drive position, and he gets to a balanced position to attack the ball. He rotates his backside through contact and he looks to drive the ball to the opposite side of the field. At SS, Michael is on time with his prep step, he has good actions to the ball, and he flashes the leather to his glove side. He has a clean exchange and he makes strong/accurate throws across the diamond. Michael is highly competitive and we hope to see his progress in the future.
