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).
2011 Toolsy Logan Watkins has the athleticism to man second or center, and they've tried him at short, but he needs to deliver more than the odd walk to become a really interesting prospect.
2010 His glove is definitely a work in progress, but Logan Watkins makes contact, hits line drives, and uses his plus speed to great advantage, producing a high batting average, solid OBP, and absolutely no power.
