06/18/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Kansas City, MO Mike is a 1B/RHP who will graduate in 2022. Defensively at 1B, he hustles hard as he tries to work into a square fielding position on GB's. He fields the ball, sets his feet and fires throws with loose arm action. On the mound, this RHP keeps his eyes locked in on the mitt. He separates on time, delivers from a hi 3/4 arm slot and stays directional towards his target. With the bat, Mike shows a solid setup. He strides short/square to each pitch and stays balanced through contact. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
