University of Michigan Baseball Players Who Made it to the Major Leagues

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every University of Michigan alumni who played baseball at the University of Michigan AND made it to the Major League level.

"He (J.J. Putz) looks a lot more confident and a lot more aggressive. That stems from the fact that he's throwing with better stuff and better location. It's a nice combination." - Mariners pitching Coach Bryan Price (March 18, 2003)
