02/10/2013 - College PREP - Sacramento, CA Michelle is a talented young C from the 2016 class. Defensively, she displays soft hands, fluid footwork and a quick release that produces accurate results with carry. She receives with a firm wrist, uses a good drop step to throw and keeps her hips low when blocking. To further develop, she will want to work at staying low to throw and keeping her toes out and her shoulders square when blocking. At the plate, Michelle uses a square set up with a back load, no stride, centered balance and has a short path to the ball. She generates quick bat speed through the zone, producing solid contact to all fields and will benefit from keeping her lower half under control in her load with rhythm and balance throughout swing. Overall, Michelle is an exciting C with an advanced feel for the game on both sides of the ball and should continue to seek quality opponents and instruction to properly develop.
