Deleon was developed in Boca Chica with well-known trainer Valentin Moreno. Monero has had much success developing young international prospects, last year signing DPL Alum and Cubs selection in Frandy Delarosa among others, he also developed Marlins MLB outfielder Marcell Osuna.
Deleon is wiry with a well-proportioned body; he has flashy actions, arm strength and range to stick at the position. Some of his tools are max effort but he is a solid short stop with room to project. Michael is a line drive switch hitter who makes frequent contact in games from both sides of the plate. His athletic ability and baseball instinct should help him develop into a solid short stop.
The Texas Rangers and Michael Deleon reached an agreement for $550,000.00
