Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Michael Raymond Leake (born November 12, 1987), is a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds. He bats and throws right-handed. Leake is the first player since Xavier Nady of the San Diego Padres in 2000 to go directly from the draft to the major leagues, and is the first starting pitcher to accomplish the feat since left-hander Jim Abbott of the California Angels in 1989. He was also the first Cincinnati Red to do so since the abolition of the Bonus Rule after the 1965 season (shortstop Bobby Henrich, pitcher Jay Hook, and catcher Don Pavletich, who did so in 1957, were all "Bonus Babies").show more
