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 Hernan Perez has an exceptional glove, so exceptional that he jumped from High-A to the majors for a brief turn. The progress of his bat will determine his future.
2012 Young Venezuelan infielder Hernan Perez parlayed a Midwest League All-Star appearance and a successful AFL stint into a surprise spot on the 40-man roster; he is a plus defender at the keystone and playable at shortstop, but his bat is an open question.

2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)What do you see Hernan Perez as? I see he's raised his BB% and the strikeouts remain fairley low. I liked him in his short stints in Detroit last year, seemed like he played above avg defence. They gave him some time at short this year until the Suarez callup. Future utility man?
(Zack from Windsor)
Utility profile for me. Don't think the bat really comes around. In fact, he may be included in a trade around the deadline, if some team thinks he can play 2B every day. I don't. (Jordan Gorosh)

(Bob from LA)
If the Tigers are serious about making another run at a World Series, I think they need to do one of two things -- assuming the number one thing is a healthy Miguel Cabrera -- and that's either find an offense upgrade at second base or left field. If they do something big in left field, then they can probably survive with Perez at second base. If they need some offense out of the position, that's not going to end well. He's not ready in that respect, and I'm not sure he's ever going to have the bat to be more than utility guy. (Mark Anderson)
