11/09/2017 - Baseball Factory Select Training & Competition in Arizona (Ages 12-14) Michael is a lean, wiry catcher that will graduate in 2024. Behind the plate, feet are aggressive and active as he works in line to his target, through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times 3.64 - 3.99 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and he works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft and he sticks in the zone. He utilizes his body well through the blocking process but needs to work to get down quicker. At the plate, he shows a tall setup. Hands are loose and work through an aggressive approach. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. With 7 years to further develop, Michael has potential with time and room to progress his game.
