Drafted in the 9th round (275th overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2010 (signed for $75,000)
Kirby-Jones has hit 46 homers the last two seasons and has some of the nation's gaudiest numbers in 2010. He understands the strike zone (58 walks) and has a short, powerful swing with plus raw power. He has thickened up over his college career, and his 6-foot, 230-pound frame holds him back defensively. He's a well-below-average runner who is limited to first base despite arm strength that allowed him to pitch 100 innings over the last three seasons.
