Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • SS/CPosition Projection

11/05/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Tampa, FL Michael is a SS/C who will graduate in 2023. Defensively behind the plate, he shows active feet and tracks pitches well into his mitt. He tries to center to block and fires the ball down to 2B with loose arm action. At SS, he takes efficient routes/angles to the GB. He tries to work around the ball and makes accurate throws to his target. With the bat, Michael displays an athletic/square setup. He whips his barrel on a direct path fast through the zone and consistently drives pitches on a line. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
