BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 A toolsy, teenage Dominican third baseman, Michael Almanzar hasnít hit above Rookie ball and isnít being helped by the Soxís aggressive promotions.
2009 Another in what has turned into a long line of raw, teenage players up the middle in the organization, Michael Almanzar is an elite talent signed out of the Dominican Baseball Academy in 2007. He tore up the GCL for the short time he was there, but was humbled by the Sally League. Rushed, he remains a prospect with a very high ceiling.

2009-04-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you had a chance to see Michael Almanzar? Does his plate discipline take a step forward this year? The start is promising...
(myshkin from Sunnyvale, CA)
I haven't seen him play yet. Soon I may be in a situation where I can get to more minor league games more often, or when I feel like. (Marc Normandin)
