YearComment
2011 Slugger Brendan Katin posted a monster Triple-A season, but has long since been consigned to Quadruple-A purgatory due to his status as an unathletic blob and a strikeout machine who doesn't adjust ever, even with two strikes. That said, he bleeping destroys left-handed pitching and could be the second coming of Shelley Duncan, for whatever that's worth.
2010 Mighty Brendan Katin's feats of strength involved consistent production at Nashville the last two years, but better health in 2009; being Ryan Braun's college teammate isn't getting him any extra breaks, but as a latter-day Mark Brouhard, it shouldn't.
2009 Three True Outcomes hitters have their uses, but Two True Outcomes hitters? Not so much. A former college teammate of Braun's, Katin has plenty of raw power, but as for the strike zone, he apparently saw it in a movie once and decided it wasn’t for him. If he could learn to handle breaking balls, he might have a future; until then he’s little more than a curio.
2008 A college teammate of Ryan Braun's at Miami, Brendan Katin is a lumberjack-big and powerful, but with a long swing that makes him prone to strikeouts. Too prone, probably, as whiffing in 32 percent of his plate appearances will likely keep him from the Show.
2007 A teammate of Ryan Braun`s at the University of Miami, muscular Brendan Katin had a nice year beating up on less polished players in the Florida State League.
