08/05/2013 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 Michael is a young SS/RHP that will graduate in 2015. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 7.31 60 time. Defensive abilities are outstanding as he utilizes his feet well in his lateral movement, displaying range. He works to square balls up and plays through well with his body, presenting clean / soft hands well out front. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact with power numbers improving as he learns to use his lower half more. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 69-74 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Control is a solid as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as more arm strength is gained through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is a hard worker, very coachable, and a leader on the field. With 2 years to further develop, Michael has abilities with time and room to improve.
