BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Small and not much of an athlete, the one thing second baseman Jim Negrych can do is hit, and the Pirates hope he can get there as he's a semi-hometown hero who set many records during his college days at Pitt.
2010 After winning the Carolina League batting title and being named the Pirates' minor-league player of the year in 2008, Negrych had a disappointing first full season at Double-A. He had a hard time adjusting to the higher caliber of pitching, and just when his bat began to heat up in July, he suffered a season-ending punctured lung when he collided with shortstop Brian Friday while trying to field a ground ball. As is, Negrych's value lies in his batting average and on-base percentage, as he has little power and is a below-average defender, so his opportunities are going to be limited.
2009 Negrych is a one-tool player, but that tool, pure hitting ability, is rarer than you might think. He won the Carolina League batting title at Lynchburg, and kept hitting after a late-season promotion to Double-A. The problem is finding Negrych a position, as he hasn't played well at second or third base. However, he will keep getting chances because of his pesky, grinder's batsmanship, spraying line drives in all directions, a talent that made him the first baseball All-American in the history of the University of Pittsburgh.
