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 Kent Matthes, the Rockies' fourth-round pick in 2009 out of the University of Alabama, is an old-for-his-level corner outfielder whose power declined and plate discipline remained atrocious on advancing to Double-A before a strained oblique ended his season in July.
