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 Wilfredo Tovar's glove at short will give him every opportunity to prove he can hit enough to stick around the majors, and if (if) he can replicate his High-A line over most of a year at Double-A as a 21-year-old, he'll be well on his way.
