    His brother Austin was a seventh-round pick by the Pirates last year, and Kyle Kubitza should go in the same range this June. (Austin decided to attend Rice, where he has been the Owls' best pitcher as a freshman, and projects a possible first-rounder in 2013.) As a 6-foot-4, 190-pound lefthanded hitter with strength and athleticism, Kyle profiles well at third base. He offers power and patience at the plate, but scouts would like to see him maintain a consistent set-up rather than tinkering with his hitting mechanics. Likewise, they'd like to see more reliable defense at third base, where he made 22 errors in 55 regular-season games. He has the hands, arm and agility to play the hot corner if he can maintain his concentration.
