BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Blessed with basestealing prowess and raw speed that can bend the fabric of space-time, Gore made a few strides at the plate last season hoping to become more than just a perennial playoff pinch-runner. He increased his walk rate and posted a credible on-base percentage in the Texas League, lending a little credence to the thought that he might be able to carry his weight all season on a big-league bench. However, Gore's swing generates less power than a 10-year-old D cell and a weak arm limits him to left field, meaning he's still about 20 points of OBP below where he can realistically be considered for a fourth-outfielder job.
2015 A human-cheetah hybrid, Gore has speed that makes even the Royals' collection of rocket cars look like they're in second gear. He can run down outfield flies with the best of them, but unfortunately he slots in midway between Jarrod Dyson and Herb Washington at the plate. "Punchless" doesn't go nearly far enough to describe a player with a career .271 slugging percentage and .034 isolated power, earned mostly in the low minors: Juan Pierre's career MLB isolated power was .066. Gore will likely never develop enough on-base panache to be a viable fourth outfielder, but it's still a gas to watch him run, something a smart contender should let us do every September.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-10-20 16:00:00 (link to chat)If teams can carry 13 pitchers in the regular season, why can't someone carry 12 plus Terrance Gore?
(HW from MO)
They could, but I think it's perceived that having the additional pitcher is a better use of the roster spot. Whether that is correct or not is perhaps an interesting question for future study. (Rob Arthur)
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jason, Are there any elite speed prospects who hit well enough that you are confident they will be full time starters in the majors?
(Cal Guy from Cal)
Buxton is an elite speed prospect, so yes. Other than Buxton? Its thin. Terrance Gore is one of the fastest humans I've ever seen, and doubt he hits enough to be a full-time starter. Hamilton has the best chance of the speed-first types. (Jason Parks)
2013-07-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Welcome Back. Is Terrance Gore a lock to be on KC's 2014 Top 10? Guy to watch? How close is the speed to Hamilton's?
(Jonah from Brooklyn)
He's an 8 runner; no doubt. Not sure if he's a top ten guy, as that system is still really, really good. Definitely a fun player to watch; future bench OF with catalytic speed. (Jason Parks)
