BP Annual Player Comments

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 Aggression, thy name is Gregorius. Actually, his name is Mariekson but he goes by Didi and is a flashy defensive shortstop who sometimes gets too excited at the plate, on the bases, and in the field. He hasn't shown much with the bat yet but impressed in the Arizona Fall League, with one veteran observer calling him the circuit's best athlete. If Gregorius can play under more control and avoid silly mistakes, he could have a career as a shortstop who bats toward the bottom of a lineup. Think Alfredo Griffin.
2012 A kidney infection kept this product of the Netherlands from getting in action until it was almost June. That put the Reds in an awkward spot—they were already going to have to decide whether he'd be added to the 40-man after the year, because they'd signed him as a teen in 2007. With his injury-compressed season, they challenged him with a spin at Double-A, where he made a creditable showing. As with many European players, Gregorius simply needs more reps and more game experience. He has the arm and the fluidity to be a good shortstop, but he's still inconsistent afield. At the plate, he's turning into a good contact hitter with flashes of power against right-handers, but he's been utterly hopeless against lefties.
2010 A Dutch-born shortstop who just turned 20 in February, Mariekson Gregorius is a solid contact hitter who is likely to hit for average, but power, walks, and the ability to remain at shortstop remain to be seen, though he should remain in the infield.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)It's likely that Didi Gregorius' hitting is due for some regression to the mean. What is that mean?
(Mario66 from Toronto)
It's possible, but to me at least, he's better than a lot of people (including myself) thought he would be. You have to tip your cap to the Dbacks pro scouting department. Damn good job there. They went out and got their guy, and the still-somewhat-early returns are fantastic. (Jason Cole)
2013-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)I've got five shortstops born over the course of six months, September 1989-March 1990. Take contract status out, but considering all else, how do you rank them for the short and the long term? Andrelton Simmons, Ruben Tejada, Didi Gregorius, Jean Segura, Starlin Castro.
(Matt Trueblood from Fridley, MN)
Short: Castro, Segura, Gregorius, Simmons, Tejada
Long: Castro, Segura, Simmons, Gregorius, Tejada (Sam Miller)
2013-05-30 13:30:00 (link to chat)If you had to pick the career of either Didi Gregorius or Raul Mondesi going forward, which shortstop's future would you envision as brighter?
(Jonathan from New York)
The easy answer is Gregorius because he is already achieving Major League success and Mondesi is quite a ways away. However, Mondesi is a pretty impressive talent that has a higher pure ceiling than Gregorius. I'm a sucker for raw ceiling, particularly raw ceiling paired with an exceptional feel for the game, so though it's a risky by I would be inclined to take Mondesi. (Mark Anderson)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Can you rank these guys please. Thanks! Marcus Stroman, Didi Gregorius, Jorge Alfaro, Austin Hedges, Daniel Norris, Lance McCullers, Bryce Brentz, Daniel Corcino, Clayton Blackburn, Delino DeShields.
(Brandon from Pittsburgh)
DeShields, Blackburn, McCullers, Alfaro, Brentz, Stroman, Hedges, Norris, Corcino, Gregorius. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Expectations for Tony Cingrani and Didi Gregorius?
(Brandon from Smackdown Hotel)
Expectations for Cingrani have gotten way out of control due to his crazy minor league numbers, including his first few starts this year. I don't think he'll be a big strikeout guy at the major league level, he's getting them based on deception/angle, not on overwhelming stuff. Gregorius is an afterthought for fantasy, but is a good enough defender to be an above-average regular for a number of years. (Bret Sayre)
2013-02-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Battle of 2nd Division shortstop prospects with really cool, but slightly effeminate names. Who has the better career, Didi Gregorius or Adeiny Hechavarria ?
(Paul from DC)
No idea, but I can tell you that Gregorius anagrams to Rigid Rod Guise and Adeiny Hechavarria is too long for the internet anagram server to handle. (Matthew Kory)
