BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Taylor Harbin enjoyed a PCL-fueled breakout, delighting Triple-A fantasy players with a power-speed combo that's rare in the middle of the diamond and a versatility that even included the occasional trip to the mound.
2010 Harbin performs well in several different areas but is by no means special or noteworthy in any of them. He makes decent contact but lacks the secondary skills needed to truly make an impact. Unfortunately, these skills are unlikely to be developed, and his glove does not play well enough to make up the difference. This would seem to doom him to utility infielder status, with perhaps a Geoff Blum-like upside at best.
