BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Nevin Ashley lost almost three months to a broken hand last year but returned to Triple-A in late July and posted the first 800-plus OPS of his career, reviving his pulse as a legit catching prospect.
2012 One of four catchers on the 40-man roster, Nevin Ashley is known more for his defense than his bat and is already 27 years old without a single plate appearance in the majors.
