Infielder Michalczewski goes to White Sox

Trey Michalczewski played shortstop and second base at Jenks (Okla.) High School, but will almost certainly move to third base in the White Sox organization after he was drafted in the seventh round on Day 2 of the First-Year Player Draft on Friday.

Michalczewski has always had power. He hit eight home runs as a sophomore and four as a junior but produced career-best numbers as a senior, when he hit nine home runs and drove in 46 runs while boasting a .449 batting average. He's helped lead Jenks to two regional titles in the past two years.


He has a good approach at the plate and his bat speed allows him to let the ball get deep in the strike zone before starting to swing. Listed at 6-foot-3, 195 pounds, Michalczewski already has good size and projects to have good power, which profiles better at the hot corner. He is a solid defender at short with a strong arm and should easily make the transition to third.

Michalczewski is committed to Oklahoma, but he has previously said he's always dreamed of playing professional baseball.
