BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 A wrist injury stunted Hoodís development in 2012. He remains an ultra-talented prospect the team loves and holds in high esteem. His bat should play well in either left or right field, though he will need to deliver some value through speed and defense to make up for his power not matching that of a prototypical corner outfielder. There's still plenty of development to be done here. It remains to be seen whether the rough 2012 will derail his ETA of 2014.
2012 Toolsy Destin Hood made strides converting his assets into performance, becoming a much more patient hitter, but he'll need to keep adding power to beat a tweener rap.
2011 Athletic Destin Hood showed good plate coverage in his full-season debut, but is sushi-raw in every other way; he'll be on the slow boat to The Show for a while yet.
2010 More of an athlete than a baseball player when the Nationals signed him away from a Crimson Tide football scholarship after the 2008 draft, Hood remains much more projection than production. He lacks the instincts and blazing speed to play center field, and heís yet to flash much in the way of power, patience, or hitting ability; on the other hand, heís yet to play 100 professional baseball games, so itís way too early to start writing him off. Hood is a seed that may take a lot of time to germinate.
