Several of Texas' opponents fear outfielder Carson Kainer more than Drew Stubbs at the plate. While Kainer is a better pure hitter than Stubbs and has outstanding makeup, the rest of his game is fringy. He's strictly a left fielder because he has a below-average arm and defensive skills, and he doesn't quite have the power teams want at that position. Some clubs also have concerns that he has just one functional kidney, though he's able to manage the condition with medication. Kainer's uncle Don pitched for the Longhorns' 1975 national championship team and briefly in the majors with the Rangers.
