Mike Gerber
Name: Michael Jeffrey Gerber
Born: Jul 8, 1992 in Naperville, Ill. USA
High School: Neuqua Valley HS, Naperville, Ill.
College: Creighton
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 190 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 15th round (460th overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2014
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Gerber missed a month of his junior season with an appendectomy last year and wound up returning for his senior season. Despite his modest stature, Gerber has plus raw power with strength in his wrists and forearms. He hit 11 home runs in 2014, leading the Big East Conference. He's a strong college defender in center field with an above-average arm, though he fits better on a corner in pro ball. Aggressive to a fault at the plate, he sacrifices contact for power and hit just .278 in his college career. His younger brother David pitches for the Bluejays.
