The White Sox signed Michalczewski to an above slot bonus in the seventh round. $500,000 was enough to keep him from his Oklahoma commitment. At Jenks High School, he played shortstop, second base and third base, but scouts believed he would slide in best at third base due to his bigger frame and strong arm. He was a third round type talent and the signing bonus matched that. With good bat speed and a good approach at the plate, he has the ability to move somewhat faster than most high school picks. As with most young hitters, his power is mostly a projection.
Major League Outlook: Prototypical third baseman
