Player Profile: Michael Almanzar

I have one card of Michael Almanzar, from 2009 Bowman Prospects.

Playing career: Third baseman Michael Almanzar began his career in the Red Sox organization as a 17-year old in 2008. Traded to the Orioles in 2014, in eight minor league seasons he has hit .246 with 59 HR and 383 RBI.

Where he is now: Still only 24, at AAA Norfolk he hit .225 with 4 HR and 50 RBI.

Interesting facts: Son of former major leaguer Carlos Almanzar.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Michael Alm, between Michael Almereyda, a screenwriter, and Michael Almonacy, who plays basketball at Stony Brook. There do not appear to be any other prominent Michael Almanzars.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Abraham Almonte.
