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 David Vidal is a third baseman out of Puerto Rico who has some power but whose unrefined approach at the plate was exploited in Double-A.
2012 David Vidal made progress at the hot corner while stepping up his power production in-season. Expect a Cal League breakout.
2011 Baseball America rated David Vidal the best pure hitter in Cincinnatiís 2010 draft class, and following a slow start, the eighth-rounder lived up to his billing, breaking out of his slump with a three-homer game in Arizona. The undersized righty has the arm for third, but hands best-suited for the outfield, so his defensive home of the future remains hazy.
