BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 Due to publishing agreements, the 2017 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2017 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2016 Some stories are great, like they were scripted by the most unabashedly optimistic (or corny) of Hollywood screenwriters. Colabello has one of those, what with his seven seasons in independent baseball, but the most impressive thing to say about him now is that in 2015, he played well enough for The Story not to be the whole story. He showed a more aggressive approach with Toronto than he had with Minnesota, raising his swing rate by five percentage points and jumping on the first pitch more often. In fact, his 1.316 OPS on the first pitch was third in the American League among those with at least 50 one-pitch at bats. Colabello also received good fortune in spades during the 2015 season. He was the beneficiary of playing time because Jose Bautista was unable to play the field for most of May, as well as the beneficiaray of a .411 BABIP. The last time someone had a higher BABIP in at least 300 plate appearances was 1924, when Rogers Hornsby posted a .422 mark.
2015 After more than a decade in the minors and independent ball, Colabello made the Twins' Opening Day roster, earned the season's first AL Player of the Week award, set a team record for RBIs in a month and posted a .346/.386/.577 line through April 23rd. Then fate, transubstantiated as a Grant Balfour fastball, intervened. Colabello was jammed on the pitch, suffered nerve damage in his thumb, stayed in the lineup and went into a tailspin that culminated in a May demotion to Triple-A. An offseason of rest may help heal his hand, and if he's right Colabello could work as a bench bat or short-term fill-in at first base or in an outfield corner, but if (as seems likely) last April was his peak, it's as much as any Worcester Tornado could have asked for.
2014 Colabello is a tremendous underdog story. He slogged his way through seven years in the Canadian-American Association while living with his parents and making ends meet as a substitute teacher before signing a minor league contract in 2012, winning the International League MVP award last summer and making his big league debut. Unfortunately, we know how this story ends. Prior to Colabello, the last seven I.L. MVPs (Mauro Gomez, Russ Canzler, Dan Johnson, Shelley Duncan, Jeff Bailey, Mike Hessman and Kevin Witt) were similarly slugging corner-men nearing their thirties, and in the years since they have produced a grand total of 1.5 WARP—almost all of it by Duncan. Dennis Quaid may someday play him in a movie, and he may make the roster as a bench bat, but Colabello is unlikely to provide much help to the retooling Twins.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2016-02-25 12:00:00 (link to chat)Any hope for Dominic Brown ? Where might he land ?
(Steve from Chicago)
I'll go out on a limb and say Toronto.

I don't think there is much hope for him at this point, but I saw a lot of Chris Colabello and didn't see that coming, so... (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2015-10-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Chris Colabello a Ken Phelp's All-Star?
(Paul from DC)
Late-blooming bat-only guy who proves legit? I… have my doubts. Strikeout-to-walk ratio is a mess. Phelps played back when batters had much better control of the strike zone leaguewide, and he was no exception. Maybe Colabello’s stat line is just what a Phelps type looks like in this day and age, with global strikeout and walk rates where they are, but I would wait to see the next 500 PA before jumping in on him with both feet. In fact, even with one foot. (Matthew Trueblood)
2014-04-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Chris Colabello for real ROS, or is it all going to come crashing down soon?
(Frank from Frank's House)
He's getting insane RBI opps with Dozier, Mauer, and Plouffe getting on base a TON in front of him. I'd sell high. He's not worthless, but nowhere near this good, IMO (Paul Sporer)
2013-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think there's such a thing as a AAAA player? Are there guys who destroy AAA but just can't play in MLB? Not directly related, but sort related, can Chris Colabello be a Morneau replacement in MIN? Does his 2013 MIN say anything about 2014?
(Cris E from St Paul, MN)
I absolutely believe in AAAA players. The major league level is the highest level for a reason, and the talent gulf between AAA and the majors can be extreme. There are countless players that have the skills to play in the upper minors but lack the high-end skill or adjustment ability to find sustainable success in the majors. (Jason Parks)
2013-07-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Callups today: Chris Colabello and Junior Lake. Fliers or bench fodder?
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
Really depends on league, but needs to be pretty deep for either. (Paul Sporer)
