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 Cunningham, the Braves’ second-round pick in 2010, took steps forward in 2012. The Jacksonville State product is a tweener, lacking the speed to play in center field every day, the arm for right field, or the power for either corner. Cunningham’s deficiencies put a lot of pressure on his hit tool and on-base abilities. There’s some reason to think he can develop into a second-division starter, but a future as a fourth outfielder seems more likely.
2012 The other compensatory pick acquired from Mike Gonzalez’s departure turned into Todd Cunningham. A JuCo product, Cunningham’s power has not translated to wood yet despite profiling as his best tool.
