Drafted in the 11th round (333rd overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2009
Third baseman Mike Spina broke Kevin Youkilis' Cincinnati single-season home run record with 21 in 2008, then upped the mark to 23 this spring. Spina has a lot in common with Youkilis: a similar build (6 feet, 209 pounds), a quality righthanded bat, the ability to work counts and entry into pro ball as a senior sign. Spina has more raw power than Youkilis did at the same stage of his career, though he's not as athletic or gifted defensively. He has enough arm strength and decent enough hands to be an adequate third baseman in pro ball. Undrafted in two years at Florida CC, Spina was selected in the 45th round by the Twins last June.
