BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2010 Canadian backstop Chris Robinson threw out just 19 percent of SB attempts, but he hit a career-high .326 with a few doubles at Iowa; unless he develops more power or more patience his updated batting profile will read mostly harmless.
