BP Annual Player Comments

2012 And back to third base he goes! Roger's kid Koby Clemens isn't much of a prospect, but he has some power, and the Astros' other options at third base are not so hot. Moving to catcher, left field, and first base in the minors has prepared him for his future as a utility player.
2011 Bbest known for being the oldest of the four sons of 300-game winner Roger Clemens, Koby has shown the ability to hit the ball out of the park in the minor leagues. However, his aggressiveness at the plate was exploited by more experienced pitchers last season, which resulted in a 31.6 percent whiff rate. Clemens has also switched positions three times in his six-year career, bouncing from third base to catcher to left field to first base. The next position on the defensive spectrum is designated hitter, which doesn't bode well for any prospect.
2010 Clemens spent most of his year raking at High-A Lancaster, but a number of caveats attend that performance. His offensive numbers were backed by a ridiculously high .425 BABIP, which isn't sustainable in this or any other universe, and he was doing it in one of the best hitter's parks in perhaps the best hitter's league in the country. On the positive side, his strikeout rate remained manageable, and he continued to walk at a pretty good clip. He'll have to prove the power was real, and his defense at catcher still needs a lot of work. Double-A should be a good test for him, but if he passes it, he could end up giving Castro a run for his money.
2009 To pull off a position switch, to catcher of all things, is a difficult job. To do it while moving up a level, and while your Dad is in the headlines every day (in a bad way) is almost unimaginable. Clemens' arm was his best asset at third, and it plays well behind the plate. Hitting, he showed improved patience and moderate power; we do worry that the jump in batting average is an unsustainable, fluky spike. With the switch, he's solidly on a prospect's courseóno nepotism required.
2007 Roger`s kid, Koby Clemens, wasn`t purely a nepotism pick, but he`s struggled as a pro. He has a little power and a strong arm (no surprise), but his hitting skills, approach, and athleticism are all a little behind the curve.
2006 For a guy written off as an irrelevant pick, Clemens played pretty well in the Appalachian League. He impressed a few scouts, drew a few walks, and showed some raw talent on defense. He`s unlikely to play with his dad in the bigs unless it`s part of some sort of publicity stunt, but he`s certainly earned the chance to play professionally.
