Kulbacki had a huge breakout season for James Madison last spring, and despite putting up big numbers in the Colonial Athletic Association, scouts that have seen him say that he has the tools to back up his gaudy offensive numbers. He led the entire nation in home runs (24), slugging (.943) and OPS (1.511), and was second in batting and on-base percentage. Many wanted to see Kulbacki replicate his success in the Cape Cod League to justify his standing as a potential first-round pick come June 2007. He struggled in the first half of the summer before exploding in the second half, and despite hitting 7 home runs on the Cape, scouts still walked away disappointed. His second half success adjusting to a wood bat is a positive sign, as his .420 slugging percentage on the Cape is nothing to sneeze at, and he proved he could hit with wood the summer before in the Clark-Griffith League on his way to being named the league's 3rd-best prospect by Baseball America after his freshman year in college. Kulbacki will have plenty of doubters given his size and the fact that he doesn't play in a high-powered conference, and he will be hard-pressed to coming close to matching his '06 numbers, but he definitely put his name on the scouting map. He currently plays centerfield, but could play anywhere in the outfield, and is likely to draw some Brian Giles comparisons along the way.
