BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Berger emerged from obscurity with a 40-home run season in the Texas League in 2001, and did his best last year to prove that his power surge wasnít a fluke, although difficulty making contact cost him at the major league level. His ability to mash lefties (career .508 SLG against southpaws) makes him a useful fifth outfielder. His upside is Shane Spencer.
2002 Bergerís 2001 spike was random. Berger, who had taken the better part of three years to get out of the Carolina League and tanked in his previous trip to Wichita, went nuts last year, blasting 40 bombs. He even had a tasty cup of coffee with the Royals, slugging .875 in 16 at-bats. He's not a prospect, just a guy who found his power stroke once and got himself a line in The Baseball Encycl...er, Total Baseb...um, a big book of baseball stats.
