BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 After hitting well at every stop since he was drafted in the sixth round in 2012, Perkins finally hit a bump when he reached Triple-A. He carried a strikeout-to-walk ratio of just over 2 through Double-A, but it shot up to almost 4 at Lehigh Valley. With doubles power and a high-contact approach, Perkins doesn't profile well in the four corners, but he'll get a chance to launch a career as a bench outfielder sometime this year.
2013 Perkins differs from the super-athletic, tools-laden profiles often found in the Philly system. He's a polished college draftee with some upside to go, tied almost entirely to his bat. His aggressive approach could be exposed as a negative as the competition improves, but that's a facet of his game he can improve. The Phillies drafted Perkins as a third baseman, but last year he played three of the four corners at Williamsport.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the problem with Cameron Perkins? No one ever mentions him yet he's the only guy in the Phillies system with a rock solid track record of hitting. Has size and pop and basically seems to be able to rake. Is his defense atrocious? What's the issue?
(Free_AEC from South Jersey)
I'm not sure I'd call short-season in 2012 and 103 games in 2013 as a rock-solid track record of hitting, but I understand your larger point on Perkins. I like him well enough. He's a guy with MLB potential, but the biggest knock on him is the lack of prototypical corner-outfield power. The swing is more geared toward doubles than home runs, which I have a little trouble with given his position. If he continues to rake in Double-A this year, you'll hear him mentioned a lot more, but my best guess is he's still viewed as more of a fringe talent than potential solid regular. (Mark Anderson)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Stephen Piscotty and Cameron Perkins. Other than the spelling of their names how do they differ? Statistically they appear to be the same guy.
(Free_AEC from South Jersey)
Piscotty is a far superior player in my mind. Much better feel for the game, better overall feel for hitting, and a better defender. I'd take him 10 times out of 10 and not even think about it very long. (Mark Anderson)
