12/27/2011 - Pirate City Christmas Camp and Tournament - Session 2 Michael is a stocky, strong catcher that will graduate in 2012. His feet are active as he works in line to his target. His throws are accurate with pop times showing a range of 2.30-2.35. He needs to quicken his transfer / exchange, speeding up his release to continue to lower his pop times. Receiving / blocking skills are playable tools that will play well at the next level as he continues to improve. At the plate, Young continues to show solid abilities through a balanced approach. He loads well, allowing his quick hands to work directly to the baseball. Barrel accuracy is a plus with the baseball jumping off his bat when centered. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, plays hard, and shows a great desire to be the best he can be.
