BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 Miguel Perez's impressive stat line was little more than a 23-year-old returning to High-A after a year in the Southern League. The touted catch-and-throw guy is a minor league free agent searching for an organization that's less well-stocked behind the plate.
2007 Miguel Perez can`t hit and won`t, but the game always has space for its catch-and-throw types.
2005 Considered the best catching prospect in the system by scouts, you'd like to see the numbers start to match up. The observational crowd point to his strong 6'3", 190-pound frame and his projectable swing and see a future power hitter; we see two homers in his four-year pro career. Of course there are mitigating factors in play, or he wouldn't be in this book: Perez doesn't turn 22 until September, catchers tend to master hitting later, and the Reds rave about his catch-and-throw ability. That would be a lot handier if teams actually tried to steal bases anymore. But this is the same team still getting over taking Chris Gruler #3 overall in '02, ahead of Zach Greinke, Prince Fielder, Khalil Greene, Scott Kazmir and many others—maybe they're due for those rose-colored glasses to start paying dividends.
