BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Exposito spent the month of May backing up Matt Wieters behind the plate, and the biggest takeaway from that might just be that he looks like the love child of Dustin Pedroia and Jorge Velandia. To wit, Exposito is a solid defender (nothing more, nothing less), and he offers with the bat exactly what you'd expect from a backup catcher: very little. He has a tiny bit of pop, and catchers do generally lag behind their non-backstop counterparts offensively at Exposito's age, so he figures to have a job riding the bus between Triple-A and the majors for several more years.
2012 24-year-old backup catcher Luis Exposito made it to the majors for the first time, but didn't get into a game, so the poor guy doesn't have the player page to prove it.
2011 Luis Exposito lacks the bat to catch every day or the glove to be a backup, and he's so nondescript that you couldn't pick him out of a lineup of one.
2010 Despite a disappointing performance in his repeat of High-A, Exposito's an offense-first catcher, which almost automatically makes him a prospect; he zotzed up his credentials by raking in his brief Double-A debut. He should return there this year at age 23, and if he shines, the post-V-Mart future after 2010 beckons.
2009 Luis Exposito's strike zone judgment needs some serious tuning, and curveballs occasionally give him trouble, but his power is promising, and catchers who can hit are always in fashion.
