BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Cornfield notoriety after playing parts of the last seven seasons for Iowa got Micah Hoffpauir a one-year contract with the Nippon Ham Fighters.
2010 After winning the 2008 Willie Keeler award with a major-league leading .489 BABIP, Hoffpauir’s rate stats cratered when his batted balls reversed polarity and became attracted to, rather than repulsed by, fielders’ gloves. But you, gentle reader, expected that, knowing that such a rate was unsustainable, just as you know last year’s .258 will likely improve. Hoffpauir’s profile as a bench power source, backup first baseman, and emergency outfielder is unchanged, and should keep him playing the game for money into his early thirties.
2009 Hoffpauir's breakout should be enough to get him Daryle Ward's job as the primary power source off the bench, but he could come in handy as a regularly employed spot starter for Derrek Lee if the big first baseman's slump extends into 2009. Beyond that, he's an outfielder only in the sense that he'll play there if asked, so his opportunities are directly related to Lee's fortunes.
