BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Gettis was the Royals' Minor League Player of the Year in 2003, but as we said last year, he's a tweener prospect with not enough bat to handle an outfield corner, and not enough glove to handle center. His awful major league audition and Triple-A struggles lowered his stock to the point that he was claimed by the Tigers off waivers. Fourth outfielderdom beckons.
2004 A former college football recruit who signed with the Royals as a non-drafted free agent, Gettis had his best season in his first exposure to Double-A. He projects as a classic tweener, with not quite enough glove to play center and not quite enough bat to play the corners. He's got more upside than a player with similar numbers but less athleticism, but not enough that the Royals should regard him as a future cog in their lineup instead of as a trading chit to acquire what they need if they're still in contention at the trading deadline.
