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).
2013 Peguero has some tools, but he struggles with consistency. One day he'll look great and show off all of his skills, and the next he'll be a mess. He's currently an average defender in right field, but there is potential for him to become above average there. At the plate, he struggles with breaking balls, and as his walk rate would suggest, he's an aggressive hitter. If everything clicks he can be an everyday regular. If it doesn't, he may still have a major-league career as an extra outfielder.
2012 Peguero's speed has driven his gaudy minor league batting averages, which have propped up an otherwise empty offensive game. Preseason knee surgery slowed him, though, and there were ripples throughout his game. The Giants moved him off center field to a corner in 2011, and his stolen bases dipped from 40 to 12. More troubling for one of the most extreme groundball hitters in the minors, his BABIP dropped by 50 points. By the end of the year, he was once again a plus runner, so there's no short-term worry. But he's fairly heavy for a gazelle, and if his speed goes, the Giants have a preview of the player he'll be.
2011 Peguero is fast, a good center fielder, and adept at hitting Ďem where they ainít, but he doesnít walk (three of his 18 free passes last year were intentional, giving him an unintentional walk rate of one every 35 2/3 plate appearances), was successful in just 65 percent of his stolen-base attempts last year, and will have to prove that the power surge he showed with San Jose last year was more than just another California League mirage.
2010 Dominican prospect Francisco Peguero has passed every challenge thrown at him so far, but he's a free-swinging tools guy who will need to stick in center or add power to become more than that.

2013-05-29 18:30:00 (link to chat)In an NL-only deep Ultra dynasty league, I was recently offered Cliff Lee for Michael Wacha, Luis Valbuena, Daniel Hudson, Jameson Taillon and Chris Heisey. I thought I was being asked tp give up too much, and asked for more in return. Lee's owner then turned around and traded Lee for Randall Delgado, Dave Sappelt, Tyler Cloyd, Francisco Peguero and Khris Davis. This deal struck me as either ludicrous or retaliatory: He gave up up top starter (Lee has had four excellent starts since then) for three fifth outfielders and two fifth starters. Am I wrong to think these two offers are not on the same planet?
(gerrybraun from san diego)
Hi Gerry.

Without knowing the salaries/contracts of the players involved, I'd agree that the two offers don't compare. Taillon and Wacha are both potentially #2 starters for your future team and Hudson is a good bounce back candidate assuming health. Even if I'm being generous, I don't see how Delgado and Cloyd are going to be better than Taillon and Wacha, and the hitters really seem like bench guys who maybe start at some point if they get really, really lucky. My guess is that the deal was ludicrous rather than retaliatory, but you have every right to be annoyed at your league mate. (Mike Gianella)
2012-09-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you envision Xavier Nady making an impact for the gyros (knock on wood) we make the playoffs? Or is he just a filler
(Cain you suck my posey from SF)
I don't see Nady making a big impact, but he's better now than Francisco Peguero is, which is what the Giants need. I'd still rather see Gregor Blanco out there for his glove, but anyone who won't hack at sliders darting for their back foot is an upgrade at the moment. (Daniel Rathman)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Welcome to BP! Would really love to hear more about how you got into Scout School and some tales of how it went. Could you possibly write an article on this?
(SaberTJ from Cleveland, OH)
Thanks! Iím very excited to be here. Unfortunately, if I recall correctly, they didnít want me to write too much about the inner workings of the program, so an article would probably be out of the question. I can tell you that I remember Billy Hamilton (Reds), Francisco Peguero (Giants), and Chris Withrow (Dodgers) being some of the more impressive guys I saw and thinking all three could be legit big-leaguers. I was kind of unimpressed with the small sample I saw of Randal Grichuk. Also, on the last day, there were some Arizona Fall Leaguers taking BP on the field across from where we were, and I remember watching Jason Heyward and thinking that he had awesome bat speed. At this point I donít need to tell you that Heyward is good, but given his slow (potentially injury-compromised) start to 2011 and now his DL stint, he might be a good guy to inquire on in fantasy leagues. (Derek Carty)
2011-02-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Francisco Peguero makes this list next year or does he flame out in AA-Or somewhere in between?
(Josh G from Stockton)
The fact that's a question is why he's not on the Top 101. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-11-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)I believe it was you who really defended the Giants taking Gary Brown-Is he their CF of the future or do you prefer the toolsy Francisco Peguero?
(Josh G from Stockton)
I'd take Brown over Peguero for sure. (Kevin Goldstein)
