BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Brett Eibner has always flashed plus power, a strong arm and solid defensive chops but last summer he finally stopped chasing sliders out of the zone and reduced his disastrous whiff rate, earning fourth-outfielder consideration.
2014 A hitter in the “grip it and rip it” tradition, Brett Eibner further refined his power stroke but his 70 percent contact rate was the fifth lowest in the Texas League.
2013 Brett Eibner was drafted as a two-way player out of Arkansas in 2010 and pushed to pursue the power potential he flashed in 2011, only to sputter in 2012.
2012 Drafted out of Arkansas where he split time between the outfield and the mound, Brett Eibner gave the Royals a taste of his power potential by slamming a home run once every 22 at bats in Single-A, his first season as strictly a position player. Still a bit raw with the bat, he should open the 2012 campaign in Double-A.
2011 Though 2010 second-round pick Brett Eibner has pro potential on the mound, the Royals paid $1.25 million for one of the most impressive, though unproven, power/speed combinations in the draft.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see any chance Brett Eibner turns into an adequate major league hitter?
(Bill from Bozeman)
I don't think so, sorry. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jeff, do you believe Brett Eibner's hit tool so far is real improvement or a sample size mirage? Does he profile as a CF going forward?
(BL from Bozeman)
Yeah, he's a center fielder, but he'll always have contact issues. They've gotten better thus far this year, but the small sample size helps. Hit tools don't really improve that much at age 25. It's rare. (Jeff Moore)
