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 D'Arnaud missed the second half of the year with a left knee sprain, but he did enough in the first two months of the season to solidify his status as the game’s best catching prospect. It would be easy to attribute d’Arnaud’s power spike to the thin air of the Pacific Coast League, but 2012 marked the second consecutive year that his slugging percentage and home-run rates had increased. The only thing d’Arnaud has left to prove in the minor leagues is that he can stay healthy—he’s averaged just 95 games per season since 2009. He has a shot at an Opening Day start, though a first half call-up is more likely.
2012 It looked like d’Arnaud was having the healthy, productive season that would catapult him to the top of prospect lists. He demonstrated that his is the complete package: he is athletic, moves well behind the plate, hits for both average and power, and has a fine throwing arm. But his season ended after he tore up the ligaments in his thumb while playing for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic. It’s the second season that has ended with surgery for d’Arnaud, and health is the only remaining knock on his prospect profile. Give d’Arnaud one more good year (look out, Pacific Coast League!), and J.P. Arencibia won’t be much of an obstacle.
2011 One of the prospects who arrived in Toronto via the Halladay trade, d’Arnaud’s season was hampered by a back injury. The trouble with back injuries is that they can linger—especially in the case of a catcher. On the other hand, that d’Arnaud struggled with injury means there’s reason to believe that the periodic excellence he showed this year, not the middling batting line, are to be believed. If healthy, d’Arnaud has the defensive talent and all-around package to unseat Arencibia for the major-league job. If not, he’ll be another cautionary tale for the occupational hazards of the catching profession.
2010 The Blue Jays were thrilled to get D'Arnaud in the Roy Halladay trade, as they were prepared to select him in the 2007 draft but were thwarted when the Phillies grabbed him one pick ahead of them (Toronto settled for Brett Cecil). While his overall numbers don't provoke Wieters-level excitement (either flavor, orgasmic or pragmatic optimism), he did have a big second half, batting .302/.366/.473 after the break, and scouts love his athleticism. He got tested a lot in his full-season debut, allowing 132 steals against 40 baserunner kills, a 23 percent rate that will have to improve, but is expected to. This is a high-ceiling catcher in a world where most teams are just happy to have a prospect at the position who knows how to tie his shoes and projects to play every day.
2009 Some see catcher Travis D'Arnaud as the best catching prospect in the system due to his power and superior defense.
2008 Many thought Travis D'Arnaud was the best high school catcher in the 2007 draft. A talented defender, he's expected to develop above-average power, but he's still very raw.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Travis d'Arnaud has hit like many expected him to when he was being scouted.. Do you think he can learn to walk more and become more of a "complete" offensive player? And what about his defense? It's been awful
(MetsFaithful5 from Syracuse)
He is what he is, for the most part. If he has some kind of power surge maybe pitchers will be more careful, but as a catcher he's not a weak bat overall. Defensively he has some room to grow, the one positive so far is his framing. So he's got some room to grow there, practice can improve blocking skills, foot work on throws etc. (Harry Pavlidis)
2014-07-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Travis d'Arnaud has come up and been pretty good of late, after tearing up Las Vegas. Do you think he has finally turned it around and will become the quality catcher we all thought he would?
(Frank from NY)
He's a quality receiver, so while he looked bad at the plate early on, it's hard for me to believe he won't hit enough to be a playable starter, if not the star some expected. (Ben Lindbergh)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)A few mets questions here, and good ones at that. Travis d'Arnaud: still on track to be an all star catcher? Is it possible Matt Harvey can come back throwing HARDER than before? And how soon do we see Dominic Smith in the top 100? Thanks!
(MetsFaithful5 from Syracuse )
The ceiling still remains at that level for d'Arnaud, but at some point you have to wonder if injuries aren't going to keep him from achieving that level. He's going to be a very good player, but the All-Star projection may not materialize because of the lack of durability.

I've always been a firm believer that TJ surgery survivors throwing harder after surgery is a myth.

With Smith, it all depends on the bat. He could force his way into that discussion next winter by posting impressive numbers with the scouting reports to back it up in 2014. (Mark Anderson)
2013-04-25 12:30:00 (link to chat)Before his (inevitable?) injury, Mets' catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud drew 12 walks in only 49 plate appearances. This is a guy who walked only 19 times in 303 PAs in 2012 and 33 times in 466 PAs in 2011. Is something like this most likely small sample size anomaly or pitchers simply not throwing a player strikes or a hitter suddenly "getting" the strike zone, or a little bit of all three?
(Paul from DC)
That is a pretty drastic change, albeit in a tiny sample. If I were writing about it, I'd try to ask him, or one of his coaches, or at least someone who's seen him, to find out whether there's a conscious change in approach. In the absence of any other information, though, I guess I'd say mostly small sample with a pinch of "player repeating the level." (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Other than Profar, Taveras, Myers and Bundy whom I anticipate ranking in the top 5 of most top prospect lists, who are the remaining top 3-5 offensive and SP prospects in the minors?
(Brian from Worcester MA)
On the pitching side you're looking at guys like Gerrit Cole, Zack Wheeler, Jose Fernandez and Jameson Taillon fitting in that top group. Of the position players, Byron Buxton, Travis d'Arnaud, Xander Bogaerts, and Francisco Lindor fit the bill. (Mark Anderson)
2012-12-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Holiday greetings. Who would you rather have, in both fantasy and for real in MLB - Jesus Montero or Travis D'Arnaud? Thanks
(tony from minnesota)
I would rather have Montero in fantasy as long as he carries a "C" next to his name, especially if said league uses batting average instead of OBP. But give me D'Arnaud in real life - offense is less than half the battle when looking at backstops, so I will defer to the guy with the defensive chops. (Doug Thorburn)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Your advice regarding gut insticts applies also to business and probably life on a larger scale. So who has a brighter fantasy future Jesus Montero, Travis D'Arnaud or Gary Sanchez?
(john from ct)
The smart money is likely on D'Arnaud right now. Sanchez is still far enough away where you can't pick him over the other two, and D'Arnaud's park and lineup in Toronto figure to be superior to Montero's in Seattle unless something miraculous happens over there, even if Montero might project as the slightly better context-neutral hitter. It's just a matter of time until D'Arnaud gets his shot. You could add him to my rest-of-2012 prospect list from earlier too. (Derek Carty)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)I'm looking to stash a player in the minors that isn't expected to produce at the MLB level until late 2012/early 2013. Who are the guys you would consider?
(patvijay from Chicago)
Definitely start with the list I gave in question 3. You could add Travis D'Arnaud, Shelby Miller, Gary Brown, Nolan Arenado. It sounds like you might be in a shallower league, though, so if most of these guys are available and you're just grabbing one, I'd probably have to go with Wil Myers. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why are you so high on Travis D'Arnaud? His caught stealing rate is average and he doesn't do a good job of controlling the strike zone.
(Sally from Seattle)
Great. Now tell me all the things he does well. (Kevin Goldstein)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Derek - two very random Deep Dynasty AL-only league questions for you. 1) Is Cespedes worth a #1 waiver claim spot? 2) Would you rather have Toronto C Travis D'Arnaud or Cespedes?
(jtanker33 from Dayton)
1) It all depends on who else is available with that claim. It seems like he would be, though, unless there are some top prospects available or some good, established MLBers. 2) It's somewhat close, but I'll take D'Arnaud in a dynasty league. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you like better for fantasy purposes (long term): Willin Rosario, or Travis D'Arnaud?
(Rodney from San Fran)
No question, D'Arnaud. Great bat, will play in a great park. Hands down. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hope you can help me! In an AL-only dynasty league, which of these prospects would you NOT trade for JJ Hardy to fill a dire need at SS - Leonys Martin, Travis D'Arnaud, Dellin Betances, Matt Moore, Neil Ramirez, Anthony Gose
(jtanker33 from Dayton)
If you're all in for this season, then Moore is the only one I'd say is untouchable. That said, you shouldn't need to deal some of these other guys for Hardy either. D'Arnaud and Betances should be taken off the table if at all possible. I'd try to deal Ramirez first. (Derek Carty)
2011-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Travis D'Arnaud, Career All-Star Appearances, 1.5, Over or Under?
(Bobby from LA)
Over. Way over. (Jason Parks)
2011-09-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any explanations for Travis D'Arnaud's power spike this year? Good hitter's environment, or just a talented guy figuring things out?
(Nik from Hamilton)
Definitely B. Power potential was always there, and this is all a guy figuring things out. Nothing fluky there, it's all real. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Travis D'Arnaud career MLB all-star appearances, 0.5. Over or Under?
(Susan from New York)
I'm a huge fan, so I'll take the over. (Kevin Goldstein)
