Suchy was more of a football player in high school, and his brother is a tight end at Tulane, and Michael's 6-foot-4, 230-pound frame illustrates his gridiron background. He has a powerful build and muscular definition throughout his extra-large frame, and he is a well-rounded athlete who fits a right-field profile. Suchy is at least a solid-average runner, with average to better arm strength. But he's a righthanded-hitting corner outfielder, which puts pressure on his bat. Suchy has at least average raw power and is a .290/.370/.443 career hitter. His athleticism gives him upside, but scouts have questions about his bat. His swing is more based on strength than pure bat speed and his hitting approach needs work. He struck out in 20 percent of his career plate appearances, struggling with offspeed stuff down and away.
