2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: After a strong high school career in Menomonie (WI), Vavra was ready to go play hockey. Instead, he joined brother Tanner at Madison Area Technical College. After two years there, he went to Eastern Illinois and hit .318/.406/.568 (.974). He decided to transfer to Florida Southern for his senior season to play for former big leaguer Lance Niekro. He hit .330/.395/.495 (.890). The Twins made him their 33rd round pick. He signed and went to Elizabethton where he hit .319/.392/.454 (.846) with 20 doubles. At 6-2 and 190 pounds, Vavra has a fluid swing and is very strong. He uses the whole field and has home run power. He has about average speed. He can play around the diamond but is best at first base or left field. Another hard worker, he is very smart on and off the field.
