BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2006 You can take a weak bat and tweener skills only so far, and now that Gabe Gross is in town, Magruder was appropriately outrighted. When you`re a thirty-ish fifth outfielder without some signature skill that might get you a geijin stint in the Japanese Leagues, it`s a hint that it`s time to ponder what your life`s work is really supposed to be.
2005 The well-traveled Magruder fits the mold of a fifth outfielder; can play center field capably though is best suited for a corner, has enough punch to play sparingly, is an above average runner, and gets along well with his coaches. Though not a huge asset, he's capable of playing a role if used properly and contributing to a team. The Brewers ran out of room for him, however, and designated him for assignment to create space on the 40-man-roster.
2003 If Magruder had hit for more power in the minors and was two years younger heíd be as interesting as Coco Crisp. He didnít, so he isnít. Heíll almost certainly be soldiering on for the Indians in the minors, hoping the major league team gets some sort of contagious, nonlethal temporarily disabling skin rash that allows him a chance to accumulate some more service time.
2002 Magruder was one of three middling prospects given to Melvin when he foisted $2 million worth of Big Cat on the Giants. His showing at Oklahoma was way out of line with anything he had done previously and demonstrates that virtually anything can happen in a monthís worth of at-bats. Show Magruder a wall and heíll run through it; however, his upside is as a fifth outfielder: a poor manís Chad Curtis, without the spiritual baggage.
1999 Chosen out of Washington in the June draft, Magruder could be the leadoff man of the future for the Giants. They haven't had a good one since Brett Butler left. Switch-hitter with speed and a good batting eye, compared to Chad Curtis, but not Butler.
