He might not really be a third baseman, but his good eye and plus contact mean he should play at almost any position, and his versatility means that the M's will find a place for him when necessary. The M's Minor League Player of the Year on the strength of a .349, 25 homer season in 2011, Catricala vaulted into a leadership role immediately upon joining the system. It's starting to look like Seattle realy stole him in 2009's 10th round. The Mariners don't really have many offensive threats on the farm, but Catricala is a good one.
