09/04/2020 - MS All-Region Tournament
Michael is a young (2024 grad), R/R OF who worked hard on his skills during his time at the All-Region Tournament. With the bat, this righty shows an open stance with rhythm to load. He tracks pitches into the zone, takes a hack and looks to drive the ball to all parts of the field. Swinging on a more direct path while engaging his lower 1/2 more will help to increase pop off of the barrel. In the OF, he hustles to his right and left to track down fly-balls. He secures it with soft hands, has a clean transfer and works in-line toward his target. Getting on a long toss program will help to increase arm strength which will aid in his defensive development. Only a 2024 grad- Wuebben still has a ton of time to progress to get to where he wants to be.

02/17/2018 - So Cal Regional Accelerated Hitting Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Michael is a coachable OF prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the So Cal Regional Accelerated Hitting Weekend. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and takes his stride on time. He takes a level swing with decent bat speed and works to make solid contact. Michael can improve as a hitter by working a smoother load into his swing. With six more years to develop, Michael has the time and potential to further progress his skills at the plate.
