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).
2012 Jabari Blash's combination of athleticism, plate discipline, size, and name will make him your favorite non-star player in 2015 or 2016. He rarely swings at a ball, which is great, but he'll need to learn to leverage those hitters counts into extra-base hits, not just bushels of walks.
2011 Jabari Blash is your typical toolshed, and we donít mean that in the slangy sense: heís the size of a small building, and houses an extensive array of skills. The eighth-rounder impressed in his post-draft debut in the Appy League, but a strikeout rate north of 40 percent revealed his rawness.
