Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • RHP/1BPosition Projection

02/17/2019 - College PREP - Lake Zurich (Chicago), IL Michael is a tall RHP/1B prospect who will gradaute in 2021. On the mound, Michael gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and extends through his release, staying inline towards the plate. Michael shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 73mph with arm side run. Breaking ball sits from 60-61mph with 11-5 break. Changeup sits from 62-65mph as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Taking a longer stride can help Michael improve as a pitcher. In the field, Michael shows a good prep step and makes the routine plays. He makes a clean exchange and keeps his throws consistent to his target. Michael can improve defensively by getting into a more athletic fielding position. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a tall stance and takes a short stride. He leads well with his lower half and produces loud contact. Working a smoother load into his swing can help Michael improve as a hitter. With two more years to develop, Michael has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
