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 Brown is a minor-league veteran whom the Rockies claimed off waivers from St. Louis in October 2011. He isn't young but he hits the occasional homer and draws enough walks to keep pitchers honest. Used primarily as a corner outfielder last year, Brown also has experience at both infield corners. His OPS at Security Service Field in Colorado Springs was 370 points higher than away from it. Brown is younger and cheaper than Michael Cuddyer, and probably not much worse.
2012 Not to be confused with the former Oakland A's right-hander of the same name, this Andrew Brown is an oldish first baseman who found himself buried behind Albert Pujols in St. Louis before being claimed on waivers by the Rockies in October. Brown also has experience at third base and both corner outfield spots, although he is not an accomplished defender anywhere. He didn't do much in a brief trial with the Cardinals, but he has hit at every stop in the minors. If he catches a break or three, Brown could be this year's Jesus Guzman.
