</th></tr>
Michael Almanzar
Baltimore Orioles
Third baseman
Born: (1990-12-02) December 2, 1990 (age 29)
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Michael Gabriel Almanzar Campo (born December 2, 1990) is a Dominican professional baseball infielder in the Baltimore Orioles.

Almanzar signed as an amateur free agent with the Boston organization at the age of 16, receiving a $1.5 million signing bonus, the largest the Red Sox had given to an amateur international free agent at the time.[1]

Almanzar struggled in his early years in the system but showed improvement with the Salem and Portland clubs in 2012 and 2013. He was selected by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2013 Rule 5 Draft and was in spring training with the Orioles, where he was considered a contender to begin the 2014 season at third base replacing the injured Manny Machado. He then was diagnosed with tendinitis in his knee and placed on the 60-day disabled list at the end of March, beginning a rehabilitation stint on June 20 while appearing in nine games across three levels. Because Baltimore was unable to keep Almanzar on its 25-man roster, it was required to offer him back to Boston.[2] The Orioles acquired Almanzar and Kelly Johnson from the Red Sox for Jemile Weeks and Iván DeJesús, Jr. on August 30.[3]

His father, Carlos Almanzar, pitched in the majors for five different teams in parts of eight seasons spanning 1997–2005.[4]

He signed rather than enroll at Oregon, receiving a $125,000 signing bonus.[6]

In 2013, Berry pitched for the Frederick Keys of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League, where he had a 11-7 win–loss record and a 3.85 earned run average in 27 games started. The Orioles assigned Berry to the Arizona Fall League after the 2013 season.[7] He appeared in the AFL Rising Stars Game.[6] The Orioles added Berry to their 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft on November 20, 2013.[8][9] In 2014, he pitched for the Bowie Baysox of the Class AA Eastern League, and appeared in the league's All-Star Game.[6][10] The Orioles promoted Berry to the major leagues on June 6,[11] but demoted him the next day.[12]
