Rays 11th Round Pick - 360th Overall: Cameron Seitzer

The son of Royals' hitting coach Kevin Setizer. Tall college 1B from the University of Oklahoma.

BaseballAmerica (rated #14 in Oklahoma):
As a gifted line-drive hitter with gap power, Cameron Seitzer is reminiscent of his father Kevin, a two-time all-star who's now the Royals' batting coach. He has an advantage over his dad in that he bats lefthanded, but he's limited to first base, where his father played third. The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder dropped from 16 homers in 2010 to four entering the NCAA playoffs this spring, and his power makes it hard to profile him as a regular at first. Seitzer has enough arm strength for the hot corner, but he doesn't move well enough to play there every day.
