10/13/2018 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Hitting Weekend (Ages 14-18)
Miguel is an athletic prospect that worked hard and made several adjustments during the Mid Atlantic Hitting Camp. At the plate, Miguel starts in an open stance, has a loose grip, and keeps a quiet head. He loads his hands back into the drive position, stays flat to the ball, and hits off a firm front side. Continuing to create backside rotation in his lower half and attacking the inside part of the ball will allow him to drive the ball to all fields. Keeping his head down at contact will prevent his front shoulder from opening up early and will give him good direction to the ball. Miguel will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
08/02/2018 - Baseball Factory Pro Select Training & Tournament at Historic Dodgertown (Ages 14-18)
Miguel is lean, athletic SS/RHP who will graduate in 2021. At SS, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. On the mound, fastball shows a range of 60-62 mph. Breaking ball displays 3/9 shape with across break. He slows arm speed on his changeup tipping off pitch to hitters. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable. With 3 years to further develop, Miguel has potential with time and room to progress his game.
