Bryan (BA) Vollmuth is a big, solid hitting prospect toiling in the lower levels of the Oakland A's minor league system. Drafted out of high school by the Astros, he opted for a stay at Southern Miss instead, where he excelled as an offense-first shortstop. Redrafted by the A's in 2011, he sure looks more like a third baseman to us, or maybe even a first baseman if he doesn't stop growing, and soon.
He signed late, and only dabbled in Rookie and low-A ball last year (a combined 11-for-41 in a dozen games), so it'll be mid-2012 before we have any kind of meaningful sample of his professional ability. Until then, we can only note that scouts seem to like his near-plus power and improving contact ability. Without saying too much before we see more of him in the field, we're pretty confident that DH-friendly Oakland will find a position and role that suits his skill set.
