BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Free talent, provided you can accept the associated baggage. He can hit for some power and some average, and a better defender than he gets credit for, but he’s got a reputation as an annoying, obnoxious guy, and that matters. If a club has an abject hole at a corner, they could put Alcantara there, pray he didn’t start channeling Carl Douglas tunes, and get some reasonable production from him. Sadly, at a point last year, Alcantara was probably the Brewers’ best outfield option. Shudder.
2002 He may have blown his shot. Although his antagonist was fired in late August, Alcantara hadn’t hit at all since The Kick, and observers said his head was clearly not right after the brouhaha that surrounded the incident. He’s the new Felix “Sucker Punch” Martinez, although unlike Martinez, Izzy can contribute something to a baseball team—his bat. Given the chance, Alcantara should produce, but chances will be scarce now.
2001 Israel Alcantara will forever be remembered for one game in Chicago on July 1 when he committed two errors, loafed on a ball that permitted the opposing catcher to score from first base, and failed to run out a grounder. Alcantara has some value: he has great power against left-handers and a pretty good arm. He might not be expensive enough to make this team, though.
2000 Alcantara beat up Double-A pitching for most of the year, getting himself named to the Eastern League All-Star team. He got a brief trial at Pawtucket and continued to hit well, with more than half of his hits going for extra bases. Previously a poor defensive infielder, he moved to the outfield last year and did not embarrass himself. He's old for his level and has been considered a head case, which has held him back. He deserves a chance to be fourth outfielder in the majors.
1998 He delivered on the power potential, hitting 27 homers in the Eastern League. But it was his third season with Harrisburg, his glove is nothing special, he’s 25 years old and he walks about once a week. Has a history of injuries.
1997 The Expos love his power potential, but there are cockroaches out there with more selectivity than Alcantara. Injuries hurt his progress last year, and at 24 he’s going to have to develop in a hurry if he hopes to win a job someday.
1996  The Expos like his power potential, but his lack of plate discipline is positively scary. If he's to find any kind of major league success, he's going to have show more selectivity than your typical hyena.
