Though Mike Kvasnicka's catching potential got him drafted 33rd overall by the Astros, it's actually Kyle Knudson who was Minnesota's regular backstop for most of the season. After recovering from offseason surgery to repair the labrums in both of his hips, Knudson had easily the best season of his four-year college career, batting .342 with six homers and throwing out 40 percent of basestealers. The 2010 Big Ten Conference tournament MVP, Knudson is more advanced defensively than offensively. He has a strong, accurate arm and good leadership skills, and even calls his own pitches behind the plate. The 6-foot-3, 205-pounder has will have to make more consistent contact to make the most of his righthanded power potential.
