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 The list of players who were first productive in the major leagues at age 32 and were still productive at 38 is not a long one, and the list of middle infielders about whom you can say that may have only one name on it. For Jamey Carroll, it's been a really interesting second half of a career that never had a first half. It has to stop sometime, but there's no real reason to think that'll happen in 2013. He is signed cheaply and the team holds a similarly cheap 2014 option. As such, if your favorite contender finds itself in need of a second baseman, it could do a lot worse than a late-season deal for Carroll.
2012 The stakes were small—$3.85 million over two years—but the Dodgers got a fine return on this pint-sized utilityman, who for the second year in a row found himself more of an everyday player thanks to extensive DL-time for Rafael Furcal, Casey Blake, and Juan Uribe. Carroll's value rests in his ability to get on base, to run the bases well (+4.7 runs over the past two years) and to field multiple positions competently, but his lack of power is a bit of a drag on an offense. Thanks to his slaptastic nature and willingness to work a walk, he posted the lowest OBI% (6.5) of any batting title qualifier since Luis Castillo in 2000 (6.2). Still, he is much handier to have around than Ryan Theriot or Aaron Freakin' Miles. The Twins signed him to a two-year, $6.5 million deal with a vesting option for 2014, intending to make him their starting shortstop; while he has handled the position reasonably well, not many shortstops succeed at 38, though at least he'll have utility both to the Twins and the contender to whom he's eventually traded.
2011 Dodgers fans had every reason to be concerned when the marquee free agent acquired to boost their offense turned out to be Carroll, who arrived in LA via a two-year, $3.85 million deal, but to his credit, the diminutive utilityman had a nice little season. Penciled in to draw the lion's share of starts at second base against lefties, Carroll actually played more shortstop due to Rafael Furcal's injuries, and he was surprisingly above average there according to FRAA and other defensive systems; he also filled in at third base and (another "yeesh") left field. Meanwhile, his keen batting eye helped him post a career-best True Average despite the league's second-lowest isolated power among hitters with at least 400 plate appearances. Only Ryan Theriot finished lower; luckily, the Dodgers won't enter 2011 with that tandem at the keystone.
2010 After missing the first month of the season with a broken hand that he sustained in the final exhibition game of spring training, Carroll essentially repeated his triple-slash stats from 2008. In another case of the middle class getting squeezed, slightly above replacement-level production at $2.5 million per year seems like money that could be spent somewhere else, especially if newly-acquired Jason Donald is ready to take on the Indians' utility infield role.
2009 Signed for infield insurance, Carroll ended up getting 66 starts at second base due to Cabrera's first-half flop, and 18 more at third to spell an overwhelmed Andy Marte. He proved that his horrendous 2007 season was not a harbinger of career doom, getting on base at a little better than his career rate. The Indians expressed their gratitude for the patchwork performance by exercising Carroll's $2.5 million option. If he picks up another 400 plate appearances, it will mean something has again gone very wrong.
2008 Carroll's listed at 5-foot-10, which would be a stretch even in a Match.com profile. He's about ten percent worse than you'd like your utility infielder to be, lacking as he does some bat, some speed, some left-handedness, and the ability to play an acceptable shortstop. The Indians traded for him anyway.
2007 Parlayed a fast April start (.351/.455/.378), a Luis Gonzalez injury, and an enormous home/road split (.371/.440/.485 at Coors, .219/.302/.320 on the road) into a starting gig that lasted almost the entire year, then regressed to his normal levels in the second half. Although not the top-of-the-order hitter Hurdle used him as, Carroll will take a walk. With that and his ability to play all three infield positions, he can be a productive utility man for the next few years.
2006 Carroll didn`t exactly graduate to Babe Laufenberg status for being the guy that Washington fans keep waiting and wondering about. Because he had the advantage of not being Cristian Guzman, he did actually get to play quite a bit, and did about as well as could be expected. He got on base adequately, played a solid second, and basically reminded people that he makes a nice reserve that needs to remain a reserve.
2005 As an injury-replacement guy off the bench who can play around the infield, Carroll's okay He's not a good glove anywhere, there's no power, and he can't steal a base. But his single-and-walk-based .378 OBP was the highest on-base percentage by any Expo with more than three plate appearances. Sadly, that says more about that Expos team than Jamey Carroll. He'll regress back to career norms this year.
2003 As part of Omar Minaya’s deadline shuffling, the Expos bid farewell to Mike Mordecai, one of the longest-lasting Expos of the last decade with four and a half years of loyal service. Of course, you only trade Mike Mordecai when you have Mike Mordecai Jr. waiting in the wings. Like Mordecai, Carroll has no pop, little patience or speed, and enough sound glovework, moxie, and golly-gee-whiz-does-that-little-guy-hustle in him to last for half a decade or more in Expoland. Carroll and Willie Bloomquist could have waged a great small sample size death match last September. You’d have to favor Bloomquist, but Carroll may have been scrappy enough to knock him out with a steel chair, or at least a corked Youppi! doll.
2000 Carroll and Andy Tracy were the two holdover regulars from the Harrisburg team that won in 1998, and they won again this year. It’s safe to say that anyone wearing two “Eastern League Champs” belt buckles isn’t a prospect, but he is good on the deuce.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of production do you see from Brian Dozier now that he's the starter and do you see him holding onto the job?
(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
From what I know about Dozier, he'll be a solid, if unspectacular player. I'm skeptical about his defense at shortstop--he's been described as someone without the arm or range for the position--and frankly, I think Jamey Carroll is better than what he's shown. Still, why not give Dozier a shot if you're Minnesota? (R.J. Anderson)
2010-01-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)What player without facial hair do you think would be most served by some growth?
(Andy from Florida)
Chan Ho Park proved it can work for anybody. I've always thought Jamey Carroll would be better with a beard. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-08-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Can you concoct an explanation of why it makes sense to use a combination of an injured Trevor Crowe, a talent-limited Chris Gimenez, and adorable-but-miniscule Jamey Carroll in corner outfield slots while Matt LaPorta (and others) wander around in the wilds of Columbus? My best shots involve YouTube threats and heavy metal ingestion.
(buffum from Austin TX)
If this were the NFL, I'd say "improving your draft position". LaPorta didn't say that Shapiro "dresses like a pimp" or anything like that, did he? Otherwise, I can't explain it. LaPorta's continued presence in AAA ranks with casting Michael Caine in "Blame It On Rio" on the misallocation of resources scale. (Ken Funck)
2008-08-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)People in Cleveland are clamoring for Jhonny Peralta to move to 3B. Isn't he one of the best SS? Wouldn't the Tribe be better off signing a one year stop gap or giving Wes Hodges the gig in 2009?
(warclub from Strongsville, OH )
Asdrubal Cabrera is the best shortstop the Indians have, and should be playing there. Whether that means Peralta at second base, shortstop or another team is irrelevant.
Eric Wedge pinch-hit Jamey Carroll for Andy Marte the other day in a high-leverage situation. Why? What good is the rest of your season if not to find out if Andy Marte can be a major leaguer? (Joe Sheehan)
