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 Alex Hassan can take a walk, but beyond that the hit tool and athleticism to play regularly simply aren't there.
2012 Plate discipline is Alex Hassan's defining trait, but this walk machine has some potential pop as well if only he'll stop relying on his arms to do all the work; when his legs get involved, the ball goes very far.
