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 From Kenley Jansen to Sean Doolittle, converting middling position prospects into flame-throwing relievers is all the rage these days, and Hatcher—a former arm-first catcher—is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his fellow converts. The righty made quick work of Double-A and Triple-A, but has sputtered in two cups of coffee at the major-league level as his inadequate secondary-pitch command enabled hitters to sit dead red. With more experience and better feel for his slider or changeup, Hatcher has the heat to become a Jason-Motte-like, late-inning force. He already has the facial-hair down pat.
2012 After making his major league debut in 2010 as a strong-armed, no-hit catcher, Hatcher returned to the big leagues last year as a relief pitcher, his prospects for a career much brighter because of the change. He was surprisingly effective in Double-A, striking out more than a batter per inning and minimizing hard contact. Hatcher's fastball/slider repertoire is similar to what Michael Dunn offers from the left side, and like Dunn, his command is a work in progress.
2011 Rare flashes of power from a switch-hitting stroke plus an excellent arm might get Chris Hatcher a shot at Koyie Hill's career.
