Kyle Kubitza, 3B - 3rd Round
This is one of those "Braves picks," that will probably baffle some people as to why they selected him this high. He was ranked as the 28th-best prospect in Texas, and unranked nationally. He is a patient hitter with power, but with inconsistent swing mechanics. For a college hitter he will likely take some time to develop as a hitter, and even more time to refine his defense, though he has the arm strength and athleticism to stay at third base.
Projected as more of a seventh round selection, the Braves must have just loved this kid to have taken him so high. Of course a high selection like this may have been necessary to lure him away from his senior season at Texas State. He seems to have the room to add muscle as well
