BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Gomez used up 14 minutes of fame with a four-homer game at Toledo in August, and another 57 seconds with a four-RBI day in Game Two of the ALCS. The Tigers were not endeared enough to tender him a contract. Gomez`s power has come around just a little bit, but his plate discipline hasn`t, and his utility as a bench guy is limited because he`s struggled whenever he`s tried to play center field.
2003 Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Royals are enamored with a young, fleet-footed outfielder who is still more athlete than baseball player. Gomez gives reason to believe he’ll eventually make the transition. Despite his obvious lack of refinement (he led the high minors with 24 caught stealings), his strikeout-to-walk ratio improved dramatically, and his 14 homers exceeded his previous career total. He needs a full year at Triple-A before we know what he can become. At 22, that could be almost anything.
2002 God, the Royals love guys like this. Gomez is a fast, slap-hitting center fielder, young enough to be interesting. Probably the worst thing that could happen would be for him to have a good 2002 and make them think Carlos Beltran is expendable. A player like Gomez illustrates the importance of an organization-wide approach to player development. If you're able to spot athletic baseball players—not athletes, but athletic baseball players—and get them into your system, then instill in them at ages 17, 18, 19 the importance of controlling the strike zone and the value of outs, you can rule the world. Gomez and Berroa have tremendous tools, and you can see them beginning the process of translating them to baseball. Teaching such players plate discipline is like giving them the key to the vault.
2001 A raw, wiry 19-year-old, Alexis Gomez was one of the youngest regulars in the Carolina League last year. He's not even in the top five on the organizational center-field depth chart, so he makes for an interesting high-risk/high-reward opportunity for any GM looking to cash in on some excess pitching.
