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 Amarista was acquired in May as part of a trade that sent Ernesto Frieri to the Angels. The diminutive Venezuelan played six different positions, spending most of his time at second base. Amarista is an impatient hitter who makes contact and occasionally hits a ball farther than you think he should, although the power comes in streaks—four of his five homers came in the span of 12 plate appearances. He is a decent defender, has some usable speed, and profiles as a utility player.
2012 The latest in the Angels' pursuit to field the shortest possible infield, Amarista may serve as the "You Must Be This Tall To Start In This Infield" sign for future Angels. The feeblest bat that the Angels sent to the plate in the majors this year, he is probably too nonthreatening to keep big league pitchers honest. He's a very good second baseman with enough arm to fill in on the left side, the cost of shipping him from city to city is remarkably low, and he's game for anything. He even started in left field for Mike Scioscia, despite his most recent outfield experience coming back in Arizona Summer League in 2008. In his first game out there, he made a twisting, leaping catch. If he blossoms, he'll be a wonderful replacement utility guy when Maicer Izturis's contract runs out.
2011 Amarista backed up his 2009 Midwest League batting title by rocketing through the Angels’ system last season, finishing just one level away from escaping the minor leagues’ gravitational pull. The diminutive second sacker could have used more development time at Double-A, where his power production cratered. Instead, the Angels aggressively promoted him to Salt Lake, where he quieted fears that he wasn’t ready by tearing up the league in a small sample. Amarista’s successful season wasn’t without its negative indicators, as the Venezuelan’s strikeout-to-walk ratio rose from 1.2 to 1.9. Given at least one more full season in the minors to consolidate his offensive approach and further refine his already impressive glove work, Amarista could be ready to complete his accession to Anaheim. Labeling him the heir to Maicer Izturis might be selling him short.
2010 This pint-sized Venezuelan put up impressive numbers in his first taste of full-season ball, winning the Midwest League batting title, placing in the top five in OBP, doubles, and triples, and being voted the circuit's top defensive second baseman by managers. Amarista has a nice blend of gap power, plate discipline, contact skills, and speed, but he doesn't get much love from scouts or prospect hounds because of his size (which is closer to 5-foot-6) and lack of physical projection. Still, if he continues to hit, he'll play his way onto prospect lists and into the Angels' plans.

(dianagram from NYC)
My crystal ball shows Gyorko splitting time between second and third at Tucson, with Headley remaining at the hot corner in San Diego. Gyorko probably could come up and contribute right now, but Headley is a better third baseman and the Padres won't move him unless they are overwhelmed by an offer. Meanwhile, they need to continue evaluating Alexi Amarista and Logan Forsythe at second. It's a bit of a logjam, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. (Geoff Young)
