    Kirksey is a power-hitting senior with surprising athletic ability for his size. The 6-foot, 214-pounder has the advantage of hitting left-handed, but his defense is lacking. He was Ole Miss' DH much of the season and would be limited to left field as a pro. Kirksey's bat got exposed in Southeastern Conference play, and he batted just .189 in 74 SEC at-bats and struck out more than one-third of the time (23 K's).
