Extractions: Leo Posada, 1961 Topps Wurth knew Jorge would probably not make it to the majors as a shortstop, and questioned whether he had the skills to play second base. The teenager had the brains, but not the quickness. Before one game, Wurth talked Jorge into trying his hand at catching. The 19-year-old made plenty of mistakes, but never backed down from the challenge. Wurth was certain he had uncovered a gem. ON THE RISE At ease with his position switch, Jorge relaxed at the plate and began to pound the baseball. In 1992 with Greensboro of the South Atlantic League, he batted .277, racked up 38 extra-base hits and drove in 58 runs. The following season, bumped up to Prince William in the Carolina League, Jorge increased his power numbers (27 doubles, 17 HRs and 61 RBIs), and earned a late-season promotion to Albany of the Double-A Eastern League.

Extractions: Jorge Posada established himself as the Yankees' first-string catcher in 1998. He hit for power, showed a strong arm and handled the pitching staff well. A former second baseman who moved behind the plate six years ago in the minors, he looked like a natural catcher for the first time in his career. Posada has power from both sides of the plate but makes far better contact as a righthander, which is why he hit 129 points higher from that side. He still gives away too many lefthanded at-bats because he doesn't recognize breaking balls and gets out ahead of changeups. He's a dangerous home-run threat but tends to swing for the fences too often. Posada loves to hit fastballs and can get around on all but the best.

Consider, in contrast, that Posada's good friend Derek Jeter became the Yankees' starting shortstop at age 21. Posada started to get it all together as a catcher at an age when many of his fellow catchers have already begun their downward slide.
