BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Youch. The extreme contact speedster had a nasty regression year, hitting .264 with no walks and little power in Triple-A. The shine is completely gone off Nivar as a prospect, and he'll have to completely light it up this season in order to even draw attention for playing time going forward. Don't bet on it.
