BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 The Service Time Quest continues. Pellow does what he does. Got a corner spot you need filled for a reasonable price by someone with some right-handed pop? Kit's available, and can be there quickly. If someone gives him 500 AB, well, he would certainly take them. Still has a shot at a career as a pinch-hitter/bench guy; has absolutely demonstrated perseverance.
2003 After seven seasons of mixing occasional home runs between strikeouts, Pellow was finally called up to KC because he increased the frequency of the former while decreasing the latter. He follows Phil Hiatt and Craig Paquette in the Royals’ long-standing tradition of having all-or-nothing minor league sluggers at third base. He was waived and signed by the Rockies, where right-handed strikeout-prone sluggers thrive even more than the usual hitter. Makes a great reserve pick in a roto league for just that reason.
2001 Kit Pellow moved from third base to first base for the 2000 season, officially killing his prospect status. Previously famous only for his Phil Hiatt impersonation, Pellow made news for a different reason last year, getting suspended for the final month of the season after an alleged run-in with his manager. The incident occurred just days after Pellow was quoted in Sports Illustrated as saying that he had witnessed former teammates using steroids. Regardless of the real reason for Pellow's suspension, if the Royals continue to use 1960s tactics to discipline ballplayers in the 2000s, they’re going to get burnt.
2000 The answer to that killer SAT question: “Who comes next in the following sequence: Phil Hiatt, Craig Paquette, ???”. Pellow’s light-tower power occasionally obscures the fact that his swing has more holes than Jeff Bower’s socks. The Royals wisely excluded him from their September call-ups, but Royals fans are kept awake at night by the knowledge that he’s an injury away from the starting job.
1999 ... who isn’t ready for the job, and may never be. Pellow is the third in a chain of Royals =93prospects=94 beginning with Phil Hiatt and continuing with Craig Paquette, who play a passable third base and amaze everyone with their power in BP, but are so helpless against a major league curveball they can’t even watch ESPN2. Pellow has better power than the other two and has considerable athletic ability, learning to field reasonably well at third base after converting from the outfield just 2 years ago. He also turns 26 in August. He’s an overrated prospect by virtue of his age, defense, and good hitter’s parks: why isn’t this guy a Brewer?
1998 A third baseman who struggles to hit for average or play defense but has genuine back-of-the-bleachers power. I can’t really add more about him that I haven’t already wrote for the two players above. Grade C prospect; he’s more Paquette than Palmer, but he’s young enough to surprise us.
