Tonis No Longer a Prospect at Catcher

When you opened the KC Star during the 2000 and 2001 season, Mike Tonis was always at the top of a list dubbed "Royals Prospects to Watch." Players like Tonis and Gobble were penciled into the 2005 starting lineup as surefire, everyday contributors.

Gobble is struggling to get back to KC after a promising start in '03. Tonis has never gotten out of the minors, and now the 26-year-old is trying to make a near impossible conversion from catcher to pitcher.

Tonis was the Royals' second-round pick in 2000, and has played in only two games with the Royals since.
