08/27/2023 - National Showcase - Kansas City, KS Michael is a lean 5 ft 9/170 catcher in the 2024 class. Behind the plate, he shows active feet and flexible hip actions. Gains a low stance and presents a solid target. His catch to throw is clean and displays a loose high 3 qtr. Slot. Arm plays with 84 velo and a 2.08 on the bag. At the plate, he has an athletic set-up and is on-time with the baseball. Balance stays inside his feet and uses a direct path for a line drive approach. Working to control his hands in his load phase will allow him to gain pitch recognition. Overall solid 2024 prospect.
