BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Former catcher Angel Salome suffered through his wife's difficult pregnancy and his own anxiety issues before asking to play the outfield; everyone should be allowed to follow their own bliss, but it's fair to say that Salome's prospect status was based on his ability to hit as a catcher, not just his ability to hit.
2010 Nobody expected “Pocket Pudge” to hit .360 again, but Salome’s struggles in Nashville were enough to give the organization pause. A series of nagging injuries seemed to bother him and he struggled all year to make hard contact, resulting in a greatly increased strikeout rate, reduced walks, and less power. None of this can be explained away by luck, as his BABIP remained reasonably high. Salome sports a strong arm but the rest of his backstop skills remain works in progress, and while the Brewers believe he’ll rise to the challenge and expect his bat to bounce back, Jonathan Lucroy has moved ahead of him for the time being.
2009 Salome began the year by serving the tail end of a 50-game suspension for a positive test for performance-enhancing drugs and ended it by confirming his spot among the game’s top catching prospects. The squat fireplug—a Bronx-raised Dominican drafted in the fourth round in 2005 and nicknamed “Pocket Pudge”—won the Southern League batting title while reassuring scouts that a catcher of his unique build could survive and thrive behind the plate. Defensively, Salome gets high marks for his mobility as well as his arm strength, but his footwork, blocking skills and game-calling all need improvement. He’ll start the year in Triple-A and may well get a chance to demonstrate whether he’s ready to succeed Kendall as the starter.
2008 This Bronx-raised Dominican rates as the Brewers' top catching prospect. Solid at the plate, he draws raves for his work ethic and arm strength. The rest of his defensive game is a work in progress, however, so much so that it raises questions about where else a 5-foot-7, 200-pound fireplug can play. Progress was in limited supply last year, as Salome missed the first month of the season recuperating from a broken ankle, then drew a 50-game suspension after the results of his performance-enhancing drug test came back positive in late July. Once he gets back into the swing of things, he's likely to find himself in Double-A.
2007 Born in the Dominican Republic but a resident of New York City from age 12 on, Salome is a squat and bubbly catcher. He`s still learning the position, but has a great arm from behind the plate, and, in his first full season, he showed excellent power for his age, so he`s no Spanky Lavalliere in the making. A dislocated ankle ended his season in mid-August, but he should be fine in camp.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why are the Brewers still playing the corpse that is Jason Kendall rather than bringing up Angel Salome? Is it Kendall's contract and preventing Salome from starting his ML clock?
(31cornucopia from Skillman)
Salome hasn't exactly torn up Triple-A. Why promote him to the majors when he hasn't earned it? (Joe Sheehan)
2009-02-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite president: Calvin Coolidge. A federalist, avoided scandal, not meddlesome. Favorite prospect: Angel Salome. I'm biased toward 5'7 catchers. What are the chances Adrian Cardenas remains at SS?
(Ryan from Utica, NY)
I like 5-7 catchers even more when they are 200 pounds and basically the same shape as a bowling ball. I just can't see Cardenas sticking at short, but he could be solid at second. (Kevin Goldstein)
