Knoedler was a catcher in college until a broken left hand sidelined him in 2001. The Giants liked his arm and moved him to the mound after he signed. As a pitcher for the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes in 2001, Knoedler had a 1.26 ERA in 28 2/3 innings of work. A shortage of catchers caused them to put him back behind the plate in 2002.
