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 True shortstops who can do some damage at the plate are few and far between, but Milwaukee may have something in Rivera. Heís a defensive whiz with good instincts, a rifle arm, and excellent range, projecting as a premium defender in the big leagues. At the plate heís hardly distinguishable from every other young middle infielder, with piles of strikeouts, few walks, and an insatiable appetite for off-speed stuff he canít reach. What sets him apart is his size and swing, which portend the possibility of untapped raw power. Rivera will have a future if he improves his pitch recognition and begins to unleash more of his batting-practice power during games, something the Brewers will give him ample opportunity to do.
