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 When the Angels called Calhoun up in July, the flight from Reno to Newark required three transfers; Calhoun landed but his equipment bag didnít. Calhounís trip from eighth-round pick to big leaguer went considerably more smoothly, as the Angels twice skipped him past a level, and he made his major-league debut not even two years after he was drafted. Salt Lake has produced some outlandish batting lines in the past, but offense was down there (and in the PCL generally) and Calhounís numbers were the best on his team. Once considered a corner outfielder at best, he played center field 52 times for the Bees. That extra merit badge should get him plenty of flights back and forth as the sixth outfielder that the Angels stash in Triple-A. He got four such trips in 2012.
2012 Everybody hits at Orem, but only most people hit at Inland Empire, so after 2011 Kole Calhoun is in slightly rarer company. The eighth-round pick hit lefties almost as well as righties, stole 20 bases, and played 20 games at center field, quelling concerns that he won't be more than an immobile platoon player.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should i try to talk myself out of keeping Kole Calhoun?
(John from Chicago)
In a standard mixed, sure. Everywhere else I think you keep him. (Mike Gianella)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who are few guys you'd be buying/selling right now?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
I guess I don't necessarily keep a list like this lying around, but off the top of my head...

I'm selling: Jesse Chavez, Chase Whitley, Lonnie Chisenhall, Gordon Beckham

I'm buying: Kole Calhoun, Ian Kennedy, Joey Votto, Michael Brantley, Will Smith (J.P. Breen)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hi guys, I love Team Tracker and I rely on BP's Forecasts early in the season to set up my initial lineups vs RHP and LHP. Any chance you could fold in the SS-supplied platoon numbers so I could easily (assume I am an Excel idiot) get projections vs both RHP and LHP? I need something that automatically tells me that Kole Calhoun (and everyone else on my teams and others) is projected to have an OPS of .788 vs RHP and .694 vs LHP, without me making a bunch of goofy notes to myself. This feature would also help one make decisions on his/her pitchers' "prefer to face" teams.
(gjhardy from beautiful Meriden, NH)
The Team Tracker and Draft Aid projections have this built in with the TAv' (that's un-park-adjusted TAv) available in both vs LHP and vs RHP formats, and those are based exclusively on the Scoresheet splits that they prescribe. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Kole Calhoun and Avisail Garcia both got some preseason helium. Which one do you like more for 2014?
(Henry S. from Westish)
Garcia and it's not close. This isn't to say he'll have more value at season's end but he's got way more ceiling than Calhoun and that's something I'm willing to gamble on. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)LOTS of Kole Calhoun hype the past few weeks; how high has he risen up your OF rank/tier, if at all? Thanks.
(Dan from Toronto)
I'm not buying it. I've seen him touted as a 20/20 guy and that seems awfully rich. I think he'll be a solid deeper league outfielder, but he's more of a last resort in shallower formats. (Bret Sayre)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you tell me who you expect to be better in the short-term and long-term: Khris Davis or Kole Calhoun?
(Jimbo from STL)
I don't expect a huge return from either over the long term, but I believe a tiny bit more in Davis' bat. (Mark Anderson)
2013-11-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)With Bourjos getting traded to SL. Does this give Kole Calhoun a full time role and is he an average player?
(Chris from Arizona)
Ah, good point with Calhoun. They could easily plug him into RF. I was impressed with his ability to jump a level from A+ to AAA without missing a beat, and he could provide some solid offense. (Doug Thorburn)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Can Peter Bourjos repeat his 2011 season, or will he end up on the bench, with Trout moving back to center and Kole Calhoun or (ugh) Vernon Wells in left?
(Mark68 from A Mile High)
I don't expect to see those kind of numbers out of Bourjos again. Even without that, I think he can still play everyday for a Major League team. Ultimately, I think he'll get pushed aside by Trout in center field, assuming they have reasonable options on the corners. (Mark Anderson)
