Kivlehan may be one of the better stories in the draft this year, as he hasn't played baseball since high school and came to the diamond this season after spending four years playing football for Rutgers. All he did in his first--and maybe only--college season was win the triple crown in the Big East's regular season by hitting .399/.484/.710 with 14 home runs and 50 RBIs. He's a good athlete and runs well. He has average to above-average power to the pull side, but did make adjustments to offspeed pitches late in the season and went the other way. He plays third base for the Scarlet Knights, but will likely move to the outfield as a pro.
