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 Collierís season was shortened by a 50-game amphetamine suspension, though he followed it up with a nice 78-game stint in High-A that showed incremental improvements on his 2011. He then had an even nicer 19-game run in the Arizona Fall League, where he was among the league leaders in batting average and OPS. Collier fits an organizational philosophy that strongly favors ultra-talented, athletic outfielders who carry significant upside should they reach the potential of their raw tools. The Phillies figure that if one of their gaggle of such players breaks through, it'll all be worth it. Collier may not be the most likely to succeed, but there's plenty to like about him.
2010 Zach Collier is one of a number of young, toolsy outfielders in the system, but his rawness went beyond sushi-grade during his full-season debut.
2009 Selected ten picks after Anthony Hewitt, Zach Collier has only slightly less tools but far more polish.
