BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Coleman made his major-league debut last year in unforgettable fashion, entering the July 3rd game against the Twins as a pinch-runner. He moved to third base and looked ready to score the winning run on a Mike Moustakas sacrifice fly before inexplicably channeling his inner Jack Cust, stopping halfway down the line and getting tagged out. His team survived his epic TOOTBLAN and went on to win anyway, because Royals, and Coleman went back to the minors. Like most journeyman minor-league infielders, he's not likely to see the majors again; unlike most, he's likely to someday get a standing ovation at a Royals old-timer's game.

2015-02-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)Why do guys like Dusty Coleman and Shawn Haviland still hang around in AA?
(Larry from Laredo)
Because there are always holes to fill, and players that clubs have experience with are more likely to get those chances than not. Additionally, in some cases, there's the value to be brought by a "coach on the field," the older player who has been there before and has the respect of the younger guys, like Guilder Rodriguez. Of course, I don't know enough about Haviland or Coleman to say if they fill this role, but it can be a consideration. (Kate Morrison)
