BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Former Yankees first-round pick Eric Duncan got a second chance with the Braves, and at second base, where the offensive expectations were far lower. He still didn't meet them. The ever-generous Rockies signed him to a minor-league contract.
2007 Duncan now seems likely to go down as a busted first-round pick, though, at 22, there is still time for him to sort things out. Duncan had an indifferent, injury-plagued season at Trenton in 2005, but after an MVP campaign in the Arizona Fall League, the Yankees rewarded him with a promotion to Columbus. Lower back problems and the unreality of AFL accomplishments sent him back to the Garden State, where he was somewhat better when not dealing with the back. In his short career, Duncan has gone from third base to first base and back again, and next year the Yankees may try him at short toaster, pinch-brigand, or designated grysbok. Duncan`s ultimate destination had better be third, or the bat won`t keep him in the lineup, if the bad back doesn`t keep him out anyway.
2006 The 2003 1st-round pick made Double-A at a tender age and suffered a predictable discount on his .258 average of the year before. He didn`t even get a shot at a late rally after an August beaning caused a concussion and headaches. Duncan`s defense at third is questionable, but with A-Rod rooted there, Duncan moved over to first base at mini-camp and in the AFL. He batted .362 with eight home runs in 94 Fall League at bats (albeit with lots of strikeouts) and won the league`s best player award, so he`ll be starting the season on a good note.
2005 The Yankees' first-round pick in 2003, Duncan has some real positives that don't yet scream budding star, but hint at better things to come. "Stay tuned," they gently say. He has power and shows comfort with the strike zone at a young age, but his batting averages have been a bit low, the strikeouts a bit high. His defense at third is suspect, and with Alex Rodriguez blocking him a move to first may come about, raising questions about whether he'll hit enough to play there. It probably won't matter: Duncan's still very, very young, and should develop quite a bit wherever he ends up after the Yankees trade him.
