Body Type: 6-foot-4 175-pound prospect with an athletic, wiry build.
Mechanical/Delivery Notes:  Showed long levers and threw from a ¾ arm slot. Initiates his momentum down the mound by pushing his hips down the slope.
Fastball: 84-87 mph fastball was mostly true through the zone but did seem to jump out the hand.
Curveball: 70-72 mph curveball showed slurvey shape with tight spin.
Slider: 76-79 mph slider showed minimal action but good spin and arm speed.
Changeup: 77-78 mph changeup was somewhat flat did show some arm side run. Did show some depth at times.
Pitchability: Pretty good feel for his four pitch mix. Would benefit from increasing arm speed on his secondary offerings.


7/17/18

By far his most impressive outing to date. 6-foot-3, long limbed prospect with a ton of room to add. Tossed both fastball and breaking ball in the zone consistently. Breaking ball was sharper than we have seen at 76-78 mph and he showed a velocity jump to 83-86 mph with the heater. Continues to build on a strong summer and raise his stock. Dominate outing.

6/13/18

Mike keeps getting better each time we see him. Not only is he almost identical to his twin brother Jack looks wise but their deliveries show a ton of similarities as well. Mike entered the summer full healthy and his stuff has shown. Fastball climbed up to 84 mph on this day while showing two different breaking balls, both grading out as above average offerings.

6-foot-3, 170-pound, a projectable right-handed pitcher Sokol shows some rhythm in the delivery, a drop and drive type. Uses a big leg lift and creates some shoulder tilt working down the mound. Fastball works out of a ¾ slot with regular run to the arm side at 79-83 MPH. Offered two quality secondary pitches. The changeup is thrown with good arm speed and matches the arm side run of the fastball. The breaking ball shape was inconsistent, at times he flashed a tight 10/4 slider that could develop into a swing and miss pitch at 72-73 MPH.

5/30/18

Mike stock is on the rise as he showed a noticeable velocity increase from the winter, running the fastball up to 83 mph. Also showed the ability to toss two secondary offerings in the zone. To go along with stuff he has the same projectable frame and low effort delivery as his twin brother.

6-foot-3, 170 pound outfielder with a taller, slender build showed a longer, loose arm in the outfield recording a 82 mph throwing velocity to home plate. Did a nice job defensively by fielding it well and can improve on attacking ball with more intent. Does a nice job taking momentum into throws thus showing some power in the arm as well as accuracy. At the plate the right-hander swinger that has some upside in the box. Flows through his double tap load smoothly as hands stay quiet prior to launch. Path is slightly uphill, showing more present strength than speed to hands. Generates enough juice to find the gaps presently with more to come as he add strength to frame. Starts squared on rubber. Small rocker step into easy leg lift. Throws with short arm action. Efficient use of his lower half. Fastball is mostly straight at 78-79 mph. Comes easy out of the hand. Breaking ball shows gradual 11/5 break at 66-68 mph. Good command of the pitch. Changeup is thrown with good arm speed at 71-72 mph. Shows fade to the arm side.

60-yard dash: 7.78
Outfield Velocity: 82
Exit Velocity: 75

Ran a 7.57 60-yard dash. A right-handed hitter that starts in a tall setup. Goes with a toe turn to get his lower half going while taking hands slightly back to launch. A smooth swinger with a level stroke. Line drive type with much more to come as he fills out his very projectable frame. Looked comfortable in the box with feel for finding the barrel. Topped out at 75 mph off the tee. In the outfield he plays with a slower tempo prior to fielding. Fields the ball nicely, on his glove foot side prior to transitioning into his crow hop. Throws showed carry and accuracy. Profiles as a corner guy at the next level with 81 mph arm strength to home plate. - On the mound, the right-hander has a very projectable 6-foot-3 170-pound frame. Uses a compact delivery that has rhythm at a slower tempo. Arm action is short working through a high-¾ slot with little effort. Shows feel for three pitches. The fastball works downhill with run at 75-78 MPH. Maintained arm speed on the changeup, the pitch has regular fade at 70-71 MPH. Breaking ball worked on a 11/5 tilt with good spin and some depth.
