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 Anthony Garcia displayed an impressive power bat and a decent approach in his first full professional season; the offensive bar for corner outfielders is high, but if he can put up the same numbers in the high minors, he’ll be one to watch.
