Mike Tonis

C | RoyalsKC
Name: Michael Timothy Tonis
Born: Feb 9, 1979 in Sacramento, Calif. USA
College: UC-Davis
Ht.: 6'3" / Wt.: 220 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 2nd round (44th overall) by the Kansas City Royals in 2000 (signed for $800,000)
With Xavier Nady as a teammate and the two best catchers in the country also from California, Tonis got lost in the shuffle a bit this spring. His stock has risen lately and he projects, at worst, as a solid second-rounder. He's a tough, intense player who swings the bat well and is a solid defender. He has a plus arm, good quickness behind the plate and can stop a running game. He was charged with only one passed ball all year.
