Drafted by Houston in the 16th round in 2010 out of the University of Houston, Wallace split the 2011 season between Lexington and Corpus Christi and hit .271/.343/.507. He has started off a little slowly in Corpus Christi in 2012 (.222/.317/.417), but through 10 games, he already has 8 RBI. Wallace wears an unusual face mask for protection. He was hit in the face by a fastball during the College Classic at Minute Maid Park in 2009 and suffered extensive damage. He wears the mask because any further damage would likely be career ending.
