BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 There are worse utility players in the major leagues than Yurendell de Caster, who can hit for some average and power while playing all over the field, but he is still waiting for an extended major-league shot. He'll try anew in Nationals camp as a non-roster invitee.[/]
2007 DeCaster`s second full season at Indianapolis was remarkably similar to his first, though he seemed to regress slightly in every phase of the game. It`s as if someone made a second-generation cassette tape copy of his 2005 season and simply played it back last year. His PECOTA comparables suggest that there could be some corner-position utility work in his future, but he`ll have to catch a few breaks to get even that far, such as finding someone who will let him use their CD burner.
2006 Indianapolis manager Trent Jewett loves De Caster`s defense and his approach at the plate, which was apparently enough for the Pirates to add him to the 40-man roster over the winter. That approach involves attacking pitches without much discretion. As George C. Scott said in the film `They Might Be Giants,` `[Don Quixote] thought that every windmill was a giant. That`s insane. But, thinking that they might be, well... All the best minds used to think the world was flat. But what if it isn`t? It might be round. And bread mold might be medicine. If we never looked at things and thought of what might be, why we`d all still be out there in the tall grass with the apes.` Conversely, questioning the obvious sometimes leads to great revelations, but it can just as often be a tremendous waste of time. That`s why the De Caster version of this picture, `They Might Be Hittable Pitches,` won`t be showing at your local theatre. It`s doubtful he`ll ever be a regular or much more than an end-of-the-bench guy.
