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 His name is one of the more blatant cases of false advertising in baseball history, but that doesn't mean Tony the Younger lacks uses. During his seven-year career, Gwynn has hit an unplayable .238/.306/.310 as a starter or non-pinch-hitting substitute but .305/.372/.405 in 147 PA as pinch-hitter. Whether it's the mindset or having a manager pick his spots, Gwynn has legitimate value in that role. Between that and above-average defense, he was much more deserving of a roster spot than Abreu or Juan Uribe down the stretch, yet he was outrighted off the roster in early August and wasn't even called up in September. Via yet another of Colletti's backloaded two-year deals, Gwynn is signed for $1.15 million, but the Dodgers may be paying for someone else to roster him.
2012 As half of a center field platoon, this Phony Gwynn is playable so long as you don't have postseason aspirations; he was the definition of a Replacement-Level Killer in San Diego in 2010, so unproductive that he helped suck away a playoff berth. As the Dodgers' most frequent left fielder, he was hardly better. By any other name, he'd have settled somewhere along the fifth outfielder/Quad-A spectrum. He signed a two-year, $2 million deal to avoid arbitration.
2011 After a glance at the stats above, you may wonder how anyone could have justified giving Thin Gwynn a starting gig in the majors. Gwynn isn't as poor at the plate as his 2010 line indicated, but watch him out in center field, and your question will be answered as soon as a sinking liner heads for his airspace. The most suggestive hint of how highly the team regarded his defensive talents came late in a game on September 29, when Will Venable—who had made two homer-saving catches in center earlier that night—was bumped to a corner in favor of Gwynn. His injured hamate bone and subsequent DL stint helped to doom the Padres' playoff run by cutting into their late-inning defensive depth. The Padres non-tendered him after acquiring another gifted defensive center fielder with a more imposing bat in Cameron Maybin. After leaving his father Tony's team, Gwynn quickly moved to his uncle Chris's, signing with the Dodgers to complement their regular outfield options.
2010 If you can imagine how Edgar Gonzalez felt the last two seasons serving as a utility infielder on the team that utility younger brother Adrian was the star of, multiply that by 10, because that's about how Tony Gwynn Jr. must have felt after being swapped for Jody Gerut to the same franchise his father became a Hall of Famer with. (Come to think of it, that must have been how Uncle Chris must have felt, too.) Little Tony is a solid defensive outfielder; he runs well and has good range. His bat's good enough for a second-division starter as long as he lashes enough singles and walks in 9-10 percent of his PAs, but he'd make a fine fourth outfielder on a good team.
2009 Kid Gwynn was the team’s Opening Day center fielder thanks to Cameron’s suspension, but after straining his hamstring during the season’s first week, his fleeting opportunity in Milwaukee dissolved into another summer in Nashville. Given his lack of power and minimal patience, his combination of speed and defense is too slim to merit a starting role anywhere. He’s fifth outfielder material, which at least means lots of late-inning work as a pinch-hitter (.273/.355/.345 career) or defensive replacement, but let’s face it, if his name were Tony Jones he’d hardly be worth a second look.
2008 On a team whose best player is the son of another former All-Star, Gwynn's pedigree garners him more attention than his talent merits. While he's got speed to burn, his minimal on-base skills and total lack of pop don't add up to a major league regular; he's more suited to working in the exciting fields of defensive replacement and pinch-hitting. His .310/.370/.405 line in 46 career plate appearances in the latter role-not to mention the career-defining RBI triple that started the spectacular crash of his father's former team last September-suggests he's more likely to be the next Orlando Palmeiro than the next Tony Gwynn Sr.
2007 Gywnn is technically in the mix for the center field job, but his inauspicious major league debut and limited offensive skills will keep him pretty far down on the list of options. He did start hitting to the opposite field more, but his strike zone judgment got worse and his isolated power was below .100 yet again; without some power to frighten opposing pitchers, he`ll need his singles to fall in at a pretty high rate to be of much use. He might make a good backup/pinch runner, but Milwaukee has a lot of outfield candidates and not enough surplus offense to start worrying about getting fancy with their roster construction.
2005 Ozzie Canseco. Craig Griffey. Mike Glavine. Matt Boone. Jim Campanis. Pete Rose Jr. In that vein, Anthony Gwynn continues the lineage of players who were given a shot because they were related to someone who was pretty good. While Gwynn Sr. made an All-Star career out of slapping singles, Junior doesn't have the same knack. There isn't enough life in his bat to carry him to the Show, but he'll continue to get chances because of the letters on the back of his jersey.
