BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 West Virginia hosted many of the Pirates’ most intriguing positional prospects last year, including Bell, Gregory Polanco, and Alen Hanson. Fans and evaluators flocking to see those talents also got exposure to Garcia. Another raw international signing, he looks like a right-fielder starter kit. His arm is strong and he has the potential to add more power as he fills out and redefines his plate approach. Plenty needs to happen for him to reach his upside, but he’s young enough to hold out hope.

(Sall Manella from Georgia)
I don't particularly love either profile. But, Moya is closer and has had success in high minors, so I'll say him, and not feel great about it. (Jordan Gorosh)
