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 Better known as Ricky, Oropesa had a ho-hum pro debut. Drafted for his bat, the former USC Trojan failed to take advantage of the hitter-friendly California League. Oropesa is a poor athlete who is limited to first base. He has a fringy hit tool and his in-game power is closer to average than plus. He'll need to tap into more of his fence-clearing power if he hopes to reach the majors.
