BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Mike Kvasnicka was drafted 33rd overall in 2010 as a catcher, but played just five games there before a hand injury forced a position switch to third base, where he's unlikely to hit enough to live up to his draft position
2011 The Astros drafted Michael Kvasnicka in the 2010 supplemental first round because of his bat—they'll figure out his position as they go along. Kvasnicka was primarily a catcher in college but played some third base and right field in his professional debut. He would give the Astros more bang for the $936,000 bonus they paid him if he could stay behind the plate, and some scouts believe that his mobility and soft hands will allow him to do so.
