Michael Rhodes is a 2007 1B/OF from Huntington Beach HS, residing in Huntington Beach, CA, with a 5'11" 190 lb. frame. Has an average, medium build with some strength, a somewhat mature build. Starts with a low hand slot and arm bar load that results in a sweeping swing path. That path creates some lift in his swing. Maintained decent balance in his swing and there is some power in there, though the ability to hit for a high average may be compromised by the angle of his swing. Defensively he showed some feel around the bag at 1B. The ball exited his hand well. Overall he was an efficient and patient defender who keeps it simple. His hands were decent. Consider Rhodes a follow prospect at the medium size college level. The potential with the bat is present.

Michael Rhodes is a 5'11" 190 pound 2007 first baseman and outfielder from Huntington Beach, California who has a strong build that is very streamlined with room for added muscle. Michael ran a 7.58 60 during the workout and a 4.78 down the line in the game showing a very good stride once he got going. He hits wide a wide base and keeps his weight on his back side. He has good bat speed and showed good strength by driving the ball to both gaps. In the field, Rhodes has good balance and a feel to get the easy hops in the infield. He has soft hands that allow him to pick balls out of the dirt. He has a very accurate arm from the outfield with a compact arm action. Michael got on the mound and threw from a 3/4 arm slot with a compact quick arm out front. His fastball topped out at 77 mph with his curveball at 61-64 mph that he has a very good feel for. He seems to have a good idea of the strike zone and a feel for both pitches. Michael is a good student as well.
