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 Hamstring spasms forced the 23-year-old Almonte to miss April, but after making it to Trenton in May, the switch-hitter stayed healthy and showed good power with poor plate discipline, striking out four times for every walk. That offensive profile probably wont play in an outfield corner in the majors, so Almonte will have to find room on a roster as a switch-hitting reserve. That means hes another Melky Mesa, more or less, but at least hes a year and a half younger.

2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Zoilo Almonte vs Alfredo Marte, who has the higher ceiling, who has the better chance of being useful in 2014 ? This is more of a sim league question, I realize that neither is likely to be that interesting in most roto leagues.

You're right, that isn't that interesting in Roto leagues.

I'd go with Marte by default. With all the outfielders the Yankees have, it is going to be quite the logjam. Marte is slightly more likely for that reason alone to make an impact. Almonte might be the better player, but he's trapped in the wrong org to ever do anything there. (Mike Gianella)
2011-09-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do either Corban Joseph or Zoilo Almonte have a chance of starting for the Yankees?
(Robert from New York)
Highly doubtful. (Kevin Goldstein)
