A thickly-built, wide-framed power bat from Texas who moves pretty well for his size, Mike Choice is a player destined for an outfield corner rather than the centerfield he played at UT. He draws comparisons to Pedro Alvarez for his body type and the attack angle of his quick right-handed swing. As an advanced bat with an excellent work ethic and (by all reports) a solid character, he's pretty much ready for MLB now, though the rawness of his tools will show for another year or three. Brought home to Texas in the 2013 trade of speedy Craig Gentry and right-hander Josh Lindblom, Choice should, if nothing else, feel a little more comfortable.
