Michael Pugliese is a 2006 catcher/first baseman from Chino Hills, CA with a medium build at 5-11, 185 lbs. He ran the 60 in 7.63 and threw 75 mph during drills with a best pop time of 1.97. Pugliese is a hustling, scrappy defensive catcher who uses his quickness to block the ball well and keeps everyone in the game. His throws were very accurate. Offensively, Pugliese has a quick, line drive swing and does a good job of staying back on the ball using his hands to hit the ball to all fields. He doesn't project much power with his present approach but he has strong hands and a good feel for what he's doing and is going to make consistent contact and hit for a high average. Pugliese' tools are solid, especially defensively, and he's a smart player who is going to maximize his physical potential. He is a very good student.
