Kevin Kaczmarski

LHB, CF, 23, University of Evansville

No college player had a better offensive season than Kaczmarski, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound outfielder whose father played three years in the Padres farm system in the early 1980s. The younger Kaczmarski, already 23, is a fifth-year senior who missed a season with a broken right foot in 2011. He hasn’t been drafted previously but is a lefthanded-hitting center fielder who has performed. He led Division I in batting and triples (9) heading into regionals, while ranking second in on-base percentage and slugging in a .465/.543/.746 season. He’s an average runner with a line-drive, gap-to-gap approach.

Astro Reaction

Not sure if he'll stick in CF, but sounds like a nice player to pick up in the ninth round.
