2011 MLB Draft Tracker: Twins Select Carolina Infielder Levi Michael

30. Minnesota Twins: Levi Michael (SS, Univ. of North Carolina)

What sort of kid is Levi Michael? He graduated from high school a semester early, and what should have been his senior season in high school instead became his freshman season in top-flight Division I college baseball ... and he batted .290 with 13 home runs and helped lead the Tar Heels to the College World Series.

Michael's been versatile, too. He played second base as a freshman, third as a sophomore, and shortstop this spring as a junior. Michael did play shortstop in high school, but there's at least some thought that he'll wind up at second base in the majors, with doubles power and enough pop to hit some home runs, too. His makeup is highly-regarded and he is a definite "Twins type" player. The system is short on infielders, so he fits well in that way as well.

He hit 300/.446/.456 with 47/41 BB/K in 217 at-bats this year, along with 15 steals.
