BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 A minor league infielder without upside, Mateo distinguished himself from the other guys who got some playing time and failed by hitting a modest .273. Better than nothing. He tore the labrum in his throwing shoulder, but is expected to be healthy for spring training. Still, if you forget about him entirely, the Nationals may have already beaten you to it.
2003 If someone makes a giant mistake and lets Mateo make the team next year, heíd be best used in the Herb Washington roleópinch runner only. Mateoís fast, and thatís about it. He lacks on-base skills, has no power, and canít field shortstop well enough to be a competent utility infielder. When a player makes you pine for the return of Tomas de la Rosa, thatís when you know youíre screwed.
2002 Although they get the adrenaline pumping, triples and stolen bases have only a weak correlation to run scoring. Mateo led the International League in triples and stolen bases, making some prospect lists thanks to his legs. Like the leaves changing colors, heíll be no more than a September event in Quebec until he learns how to walk to first base and adds another infield position to his resume.
2001 Henry Mateo was named the fastest player in the Eastern League in Baseball Americaís tools poll. Mateo is about as likely to move Jose Vidro as Scott Baio is, but a switch-hitting second baseman with alley power and speed ought to have value somewhere. Like Vidro, Mateo has a strong arm for second base, although he isnít a great glove at the position.
