12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18)
Micheal was very coachable and a great teammate during his time at Pirate City. In the OF, he displays fluid/athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes/angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Micheal needs to continue to read balls off the bat to get a better jump. Throws are accurate but he will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a tall, narrow setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He needs to continue to stay inside the ball. He utilizes all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Micheal.
10/28/2018 - College PREP - Peachtree City (Atlanta), GA
Micheal is a tall, lanky OF who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.09. At the plate, is where he shows best, displaying solid hitting abilities through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a short/direct swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields, flashing gap-to-gap pop. In the OF, he continues to shine as he displays smooth/fluid actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes/angles in tracking down balls. He works behind balls but will benefit by playing through balls more with momentum to the target. Range is a plus as he reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. With 4 years to further develop, Micheal has potential with time and room to progress his game.
