Michael is a young slim pitcher / first baseman that shows a ton of desire. He plays hard and hustles at all times. He is small and needs to gain some core strength and gain some foot speed, but he shows athleticism. From the field he shows good hands and feet with smooth overall actions. His arm strength will get better with physical strength gain. At the plate he hits from a high handed style with a solid approach to contact. He squares off to the ball well and make solid contact for a small player. From the mound his fastball is 62-63mph with some late life. Change is 50mph. He throws from a 3/4 arm slot. He needs to get stronger and bigger, but he is only a sophomore. He has a great feel for the game and it shows. Never count out these type kids. We have seen amazing improvements over the years on many young players just like this..
