  Credit: Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE Outfielder Roger Kieschnick was the San Francisco Giants‘ third-round draft pick in 2008 out of Texas Tech. In ’09, Kieschnick was a Cal League All-Star and shined in San Jose hitting .296 with 23 home runs and 110 RBI. Since then however, Kieschnick has struggled with some nagging back injuries which limited him to only 60 games in 2010 and 55 games in 2012.

With good speed, a good glove, and a strong arm Kieschnick is a potential 4 or 5-tool player but his time is running out.

Below is an interview that I did with Kieschnick. Stamati: When did you first realize you could play baseball professionally? Roger Kieschnick: As a kid I played all sports...
