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 A fringy big leaguer, Nick Green tore up the Pacific Coast League, but he contributed nothing in limited major-league duty and was non-tendered in October.
2011 Not even playing in the high-octane offensive environment of the Pacific Coast League could make Nick Green look like an asset; pray the day never comes when your team has to rely on him.
2010 Early-season injuries to Jed Lowrie and Julio Lugo made Green Bostonís shortstop by default. A solid start to the season (he hit .292/.347/.453 through June 23) plus some dreadful fielding by Lugo after his return (seven errors in 32 games) kept Green in the lineup until Gonzalezís arrival, creating a hole in the otherwise formidable Boston attack, as Green stopped hitting entirely after that June 23 cutoff (.134/.225/.237 until Gonzalez replaced him). Green acquitted himself well in the field, but his defense in his other major-league stints has received poor marks, leaving little to recommend him other than a strong chin.
2007 Nick Green was as miserable as always against righties last year, but didn`t fatten up against lefties as he had in the past.
2005 Last season's plate work is about what you'd expect based on his minor league numbers. There are worse back-of-the-bench types to have hanging on. Green can play a few positions and provide some vaguely adequate ABs against lefties.
