SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- So far, the greatest challenge in Patrick Kivlehan's baseball career has been finding a position. Kivlehan, the No. 6 prospect in Seattle's organization according to MLBPipeline.com, has hit at every stop of the Minor Leagues and has made up for lost time spent playing football.
Kivlehan has primarily played third base during his Minor League apprenticeship, but he moved into a utility role last year that saw him play first base and the outfield. The 24-year-old said Friday that third base is no longer his best position, but he also said he's willing to play anywhere on the field.
