WSC Birth Years: Miguel Gonzalez
Born: December 3, 1990
Miguel made his MLB debut with the Chicago White Sox on September 10, 2013, in the seventh inning of a lopsided loss to the Detroit Tigers. Not primarily known for his bat, Gonzalez hit a ball to short center field for his first MLB hit, against the Cleveland Indians on September 12th. Miguel would collect only one more hit for the season, in his final game of 2013.
Gonzalez is still young enough to figure into the club's long term plans, figuring to be a great defensive backup catcher. If he can figure out how to maintain a higher average, Miguel could find a permanent role in the big leagues.The potential is still there and his five game sampling could make him hungry for more.
