BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 It seemed like a great idea to bring the beloved Pena back to Tampa Bay on a one-year deal worth $7.25 million (which made him the team's highest-paid position player). Instead, he had the worst season of his career, undershooting his projected TAv by 30 points. Pena's slowing bat finally lost him his starting job for a while late in the year, but the damage was done: Pena was a prime culprit in the theft of the Rays' playoff dreams. He'll cost the Astros less than $2 million for the first four months, at which point the team will almost certainly trade him if he's doing well, or consider releasing him (and likely avoiding some performance bonuses) if not.
2012 Pena was exactly what the Cubs expected, though he took a while to get warmed up. He ended up posting rate stats just below his career marks, playing his standard good defense, and, well, disappearing at the plate against left-handed hurlers. The big swing gives him some of the best power in the game, though it comes at the price of maddeningly long slumps chock full of strikeouts. Pena provided a great clubhouse presence. Whether he'll again be able to find eight digits on his tax return remains to be seen, but he could get multi-year security from a team that doesn't want to pay the market rate for Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder.
2011 When archaeologists dig through the remnants of western civilization a thousand years from now, the ups and downs of Peña's career will have them scratching their heads as much as those of any player of the past decade. The slugger's value has dropped in each of the past two seasons due to falling BABIPs; last year, his was the majors' second-lowest BABIP among batting-title qualifiers. Much of the decline stemmed from the defensive shift employed against him, the impact of which has increased as his ground-ball rate has shot from 30 percent of all balls in play to 45 percent; among Rays hitters, only speedsters Carl Crawford and Jason Bartlett directed batted balls earthward with greater frequency. Injuries may have played a part; Peña underwent surgery to repair broken fingers inflicted by a 2009-season-ending hit by pitch, and he missed time in August due to plantar fasciitis. Concerns about payroll led the Rays to let him depart as a free agent and sign a one-year, $10-million deal with the Cubs, reuniting him with hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo, who instructed him as a minor leaguer with the Rangers, and giving him a chance at securing a longer deal with a bounce-back season in the Friendly Confines.
2010 For a guy who tied Mark Teixeira for the league lead in home runs, Peña had one rough season. Contact woes resulted in the highest full-season strikeout rate of his career, and at the same time, his BABIP collapsed from .298 in 2008 to .250, the second-lowest in the majors. That's a product not only of the frequent defensive shifts employed against him, but also the fact that Peña put the ball in the air more often than any hitter. (On the bright side, he did lead the league with a Three True Outcome percentage of 50.7.) Meanwhile his defense, which was above-average if not Gold Glove-worthy in 2008, took a turn for the worse, too. Just when Peña emerged from a dreadful July slump (.146/.297/.317) by bashing 14 homers in a 33-game span, he broke two fingers while being hit on the hand during a check swing on September 7, ending his season. He heads into the final year of his three-year deal as the highest-paid Ray ($10.125 million), and as much as the team has enjoyed his renaissance, he clearly has to produce to justify his further presence.
2009 We had witnessed endless years of Pena hitting right around .250 before his career year in '07, so it should not be a shock that he regressed to the mean in 2008. Still, plus-plus power and 100 walks per year more than make up for that sort of batting-average issue, and Pena puts a cherry on top by adding outstanding defense to the equation. While many saw it as a down season, $18.25 million for two more years of this is more than a sound investment.
2008 Scouts always loved Pe?a, and his numbers in the minors always warmed the hearts of analysts as well. Last year, in his seventh big-league season, it all came together. In the American League, only Alex Rodriguez hit more home runs than Pe?a, who started the year as a non-roster invitee and ended it in possession of several single-season franchise records. Whether Pe?a can repeat that monster season at age 30 is anyone's guess; even PECOTA is confused, listing among his top four comps two perennial MVP candidates and two one-dimensional sluggers who had just one big year each, though his actual projection is certainly encouraging. As Agent Rogersz says in Repo Man, "It happens sometimes. People just explode."
2007 Despite Peña`s .286/.345/.662 showing over the final six weeks of 2005, he failed to win over new Tiger skipper Jim Leyland in spring training, resulting in his release. A stint with the Yankees` Columbus affiliate didn`t win him a roster spot, so he exercised a contractual out clause in mid-August and caught on with his hometown team. Recalled at month`s end, he hit a walk-off homer at Fenway against the White Sox on September 4, but saw only sporadic action the rest of the way. He`ll never live up to that first-round pedigree, but he should still catch on somewhere.
2005 Pena found himself benched and conjuring up unpleasant memories of Travis Lee before going on a tear in the season's final two months, including a 1004 OPS in August. Second-half numbers correlate better with the following season's success than first-half numbers do, and Pena is relatively young at 27, so he's a good bet to provide league-average offense at first base. Still, a lot of us were expecting more. Pena's added bulk hasn't assisted his batting averages, which aren't likely to get much better with that high strikeout rate. His defense has also been disappointing.
2003 After a hot start in April (seven home runs and AL Rookie of the Month), Pena swooned in May and was sent down in the middle of a horrible slump as part of the Athletics’ big shakeup when they were 10 games behind Seattle. Traded to Detroit on July 6, he got a second chance and did well. He is exactly what the Tigers need to generate some offense and excitement while they rebuild: a young, smooth-fielding, power-hitting first baseman. Scouts compare him defensively to Keith Hernandez and Willie Montanez; he’s also a decent baserunner, a smart ballplayer, and a good competitor. Comparisons to older ballplayers are frequently overdrawn, but invoking the name “Norm Cash” when talking about Pena isn’t unreasonable at this point in his career. Confident to the point of being cocky, Pena is in the perfect situation to become a big star. Like most lefty power hitters, he gets his best hacks at pitches middle-in and low; pitchers can get him with cutters and sliders in and with sinkers and changeups away.
2002 He’s ready. If nothing else positive can be said about signing Andres Galarraga, at least it enabled Carlos Pena to get a full season of Triple-A under his belt. Pena battled a sore rib cage and started slowly at Oklahoma, then scorched the PCL at a .324/.437/.629 clip over the final three months. Last year was the first season in which his fielding numbers matched his lofty defensive reputation. The Rangers had Pena play the outfield in winter ball in hopes of averting a job-sharing arrangement similar to that used by the local gridsters in 1971, when Roger Staubach and Craig Morton alternated starts at quarterback. Now that he's in Oakland, he's in the right place to blossom into a star.
2001 Carlos Pena or Kevin Mench will probably take over for Palmeiro. Reid Nichols is very high on Pena, with some justification. Pena hit very well at Double-A, demonstrating phenomenal plate discipline to accompany 66 extra-base hits. He will definitely hit, and his defense is supposedly improving each year. He looks to me like a Fred McGriff-type hitter who should have a very reasonable major-league career.
2000 Last year he was considered a disappointment as the Rangers' top pick in 1998, but there was actually a lot to like. His batting average was lower than anyone would have hoped, but he showed good isolated power and a much higher walk rate than he had shown previously. Pena is a good bet to reestablish himself as a top prospect this year.
1999 The consensus best first baseman taken in the 1998 amateur draft did not disappoint during his first professional half-season at low-A. Don't be surprised to see him at first for the Rangers on opening day 2000.
