BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Bellhorn has had a nifty little career; he has a ring and had two great years, 2002 as the Cubs` primary third baseman and 2004 as Boston`s second sacker. Having survived the worst that Art Howe and Dusty Baker could do, though, Bellhorn appears to be done. His defense was never great, and a utility man who can`t get the ball in play off the bench or pinch-run would have to find a manager who`s pretty walks-obsessed to get a job. And nobody--not even us--is that obsessed with walks.
2006 Fans in Fenway proved fickle: Bellhorn opened `05 in a slump, and forgetting his postseason heroics from `04, boo-birds descended upon him in flocks. His shot at salvaging his Boston career was lost when he went on the DL with a sprained thumb, after which Team Lucchino replaced him with Tony Graffanino. The Yankees signed him when Cano was in a prolonged slump, but Cano immediately came out of it, making Bellhorn a spectator for the remainder of the season. He`ll get another chance in San Diego, competing with Bobby Hill and Josh Barfield, but he`s at an age where he won`t get too many more.
2005 Bellhorn once again took pity on opposing defenders by neglecting to put the ball in play in 45% of his plate appearances. Maybe he was hoping they'd do the same and spare him the embarrassment of playing defense. Bellhorn is one of the league's more deceptively productive players, drawing constant scrutiny from the media for those strikeouts and that defense, but quieting his critics every time he hits a home run or ropes one of his copious doubles; his huge walk totals may look less impressive, but they add up to a whole lot of runs. Just keep focusing on that OBP and things will be just fine.
2003 Now that was fun! Skip the Tony Phillips comparisons, he is Tony Phillips, back from an exotic Swedish race change operation. Nobody envisioned that kind of power spike, but weíve been hoping Bellhorn would get 500 at-bats for a while, and he didnít disappoint. The shame of it is that the Cubs seem determined to stick Bellhorn in the role Billy Beane originally envisioned for him, using him as a multi-positional rover, instead of letting him fix their third base problem. If they had a third baseman, it would be understandable, but they donít. They donít even have somebody as good as Steve Buechele or Keith Moreland as an alternative. Theyíve got Kevin Orie, Mark Grudzielanek, and Ramon Martinez. If Bellhorn loses a start to any of those people, itís a mistake.
2002 The Mickey Tettleton of middle infielders, Bellhorn can play pretty much any position, draw a bunch of walks, hit a surprising number of bombs, and strike out every third at-bat. He's been on the periphery of the A's plans for several years but never seemed to be fully in favor. He'll probably end up somewhere fighting for a 25th-man spot, and if he gets one, he could definitely win a full-time job given the right circumstances.
2001 After losing most of í98 and í99 to injury, Mark Bellhorn had dropped off of our radar. Shame on us, because heís still a player with patience, power, and a lot of middle-infield experience. He was a shortstop at Auburn, and heís played a lot of short and second base in his pro career. He was going to play some outfield over the winter, but an emergency appendectomy ended the experiment. He has a shot at the second-base job, but if he loses to Jose Ortiz, he could still help the team as a utility man, starting at four or five positions several times a week.
2000 He spent most of the year recuperating from nagging wrist and hand injuries after missing a good chunk of 1998 to injury. The A's admit they rushed him, so he may yet resurface somewhere with a team that needs a second baseman or third baseman with some pop and the ability to get on base. There canít be more than 15 or 20 of those.
1998 Another in a long line of Aís prospects with great strike zone judgment and moderate power. Bellhorn doesnít get the press that a lot of guys do, but heís a very good hitter with Bobby Grich like skills. Art Howe seems to be committed to completing the swap of Spiezio and Bellhorn between second and third. Bellhornís the East Bayís version of Bill Mueller, but with more power.
1997 Part of the ripple effect of the emergence of Miguel Tejada seems to be the shift of the shortstops ahead of him over to second base. Like Batista, Bellhorn was moved to second during the last season. He isnít considered a great prospect, but switch-hitting middle infielders who do a bit of everything usually get shots at a job. Bellhorn was the Aís second round pick out of Auburn in í95, and has been pushed quickly up the ladder. He has yet to disappoint, but í97 may have to be his year to show enough to stick around before Tejada arrives.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-02-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite player that is not a marquee name or highly regarded ? For me its Taylor Pastornicky, I like his approach and flare he plays with
(Derek from Georgia)
I used to really like Mark Bellhorn for the same reasons. He seemed like a guy who was squeezing the most out of his meager (compared to other major leaguers) skills. Now? I'm a big Hit It Over The Wall guy so I'm really looking forward to seeing Mike Napoli in Fenway. Power and patience are my favorite skills and that's Napoli summed up. (Matthew Kory)
2009-11-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)What minor league free agent most made you say Holy crap HE is still around? I remember watching a Mariner game in July at Yankee stadium and being floored when Mike Sweeney came to bat
(brian from brooklyn)
Mark Bellhorn got like 150 ABs in the Colorado system this year. That surprised me. Hell, Strickland, who I wrote about. I had no idea he was still around, and he's pretty good. (Joe Sheehan)
