BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Lancastrian (we're assuming that's what natives of Lancaster, PA call themselves) backstop Cam Gallagher is a rock behind the dish and treats potential basestealers like Yorkist usurpers, but his projected power has yet to develop; he's only 22, so the Royals can afford to let him bake a little longer.
2014 In his first exposure to A-ball, Cameron Gallagher struggled both at and behind the plate. The Royals' second-round pick in the 2011 draft hit just .193/.254/.228 against left-handed pitching.
2013 Injuries have gotten in the way of Cameron Gallagher's development, but his ability to make contact and his defensive skills behind the plate have gotten notice.
2012 The Royals second-round pick in the 2011 draft, Cam Gallagher is supposed to have plus power but he mustered only two extra base hits (both home runs) in 119 plate appearances. He struggled in every facet of his offensive game but had a particularly difficult time solving right-handed pitching.
