    Kreuter is the youngest son of former major league catcher Chad Kreuter and the grandson of UC Irvine coach Mike Gillespie. Kreuter led the Anteaters with 15 doubles and finished second with seven home runs this spring, but that came with an enormous amount of swings and misses and more than a strikeout per game. Kreuter has a balanced swing and real pull-side power, but his swing and miss issues hamper his hitting ability. He is serviceable defensively at second base and catches what is hit to him.
