BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Until 2011, the most newsworthy thing about Wallace was getting hit by a Barret Loux 95-mph fastball in 2009 while a junior at the University of Houston. The beaning caused an injury that now necessitates Wallace to play with four metal plates in his head. He returned for his senior year in 2010 and fell to the 16th round of the draft in part because of his gargantuan strikeout total (57 strikeouts in 179 AB his senior year). Wallace took on that weakness head-on and worked to improve his two-strike approach. The results of his adjustments were an OPS that would have been fourth in the SAL if he'd qualified and a very tolerable sub-20 percent strikeout rate, though with the caveat that he was a 23-year-old in Low-A. That he was allowed to skip a level and make the difficult jump to Double-A shows the confidence the organization has in him. The strikeouts found him again there, but otherwise he held his own, ensuring that he'll be making headlines for his prospect status now, not just for a painful experience he had in college.
