BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Sometimes, 40-man roster spots seem so valuable. "Oh no, local sports team has to expose interesting prospect to the Rule V draft because there is no room on the 40-man," and so on. Other times, Chris Pettit spends the entire season on the roster, even though he was a 26-year-old hitting under .200 in Double-A.
2011 Fringy fourth-outfielder type Chris Pettit skipped a season he could ill afford to miss after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in March.
2010 You have to admire Pettit's resilience. A 19th-round pick out of Loyola Marymount in 2006, he's clawed his way up the ladder, winning the organization's Minor League Player of the Year honors in 2007, and overcoming a 2008 marred by a broken foot with a strong AFL showing which helped push him to Triple-A to start 2009. He set a blistering pace at Salt Lake City, hitting .367/.415/.556 through June 3, but a broken hamate bone cost him seven weeks, and he hit just .269/.354/.400 after returning, though he earned a September callup. Pettit lacks a plus tool beyond his bat, and he's got only gap power, but he also has no glaring weaknesses. Despite the Angels' crowded outfield, Pettit can handle center field in a pinch and throw well enough to play right, which could put him in the mix for a big-league roster spot at some point in 2010.
2009 After hitting .327 in his full-season debut, Chris Pettit tanked at Double-A while coming back from a broken foot, but he recaptured a bit of his previous luster in the Arizona Fall League.
2008 It was no surprise that the 22-year-old Petit raked in Low-A despite being a 19th-round pick in 2006. What was surprising was that scouts began to buy into his skills, especially when he continued to produce at High-A. Petit is a bit of a tweener-limited defensively to a corner, while lacking the raw power one expects from those positions-but scouts are convinced he'll hit, and convinced he'll get there, which is more than you can say for most players selected 582nd overall.
