BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 If the Tigers need an outfielder in a pinch this year, they may turn to 25-year-old Ben Guez, who is more org guy than prospect at this point, but could hold his own for a spell, thanks to a solid eye.
2012 Corner outfielder Ben Guez has modest tools but raked at Erie and didn't sink in his first taste of Triple-A; in a system bereft of hitting prospects who can actually hit, he stands out among the tallest midgets.
