Drafted in the 16th round (477th overall) by the Seattle MarinersĀ in 2013
Kauppila is one of the best defensive shortstops in the draft, with great hands, great instincts and a strong arm. Scouts believe he can plays shortstop in the big leagues, but have doubts he'll ever hit enough to get there. In three years at Stanford he has batted .285/.348/.354 with one home run. He doesn't have a quick bat and will have to do a better job of using the whole field. He missed time last year with a knee injury and is a below-average runner. Kauppila's defense will buy his bat some time in the minor leagues.
