08/01/2021 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (HS) - HOTEL Michael continues to shine on the diamond with improvements in his baseball abilities. He did show on the mound for the first time at the event. At SS, defensive abilities have improved as he displays smooth / athletic actions. Feet are active as he works around balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Glove action is soft / sure and presents out front. At the plate, power potential is now well above average through an open setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, fastball shows range of 72-75 mph. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with gradual break. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
