BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Harman is one of those on-again, off-again prospects who alternates good seasons with bad ones, but in 2008 he had the best and worst of both worlds. He hit a career hit 17 home runs and got his first taste of the majors, but he also struggled to keep his average above the Mendoza line while striking out once every 3.2 at-bats. With his pop and ability to play any position in the infield he has some utility possibilities, but few think he'll ever hit enough to be more than that.
2008 Aussie Harman is no defensive kangaroo, but if he can continue to hit with power he should have a major league future as a second baseman. The catch is that Harman repeated the Florida State League last year and needs to show that he can continue to produce after making the jump to Double-A this year. The Phillies are seemingly set forever in the middle infield with Rollins and Utley, but with like Harman and Donald coming along, they might someday have better infield alternates than Abraham Nu?ez and his immediate forebear, Tomas Perez.
2007 Brad Harman, Australia`s WBC shortstop, was awful after a breakthrough 2005; his father`s illness may have taken his mind off of baseball.
2006 Philadelphia`s Great White Australian Hope, Harman is considered the best Aussie prospect the organization has signed. Baseball America says that no Aussies have been given bonuses of more than $50K, `a welcome change from the Latin American market the organization believes has become overpriced.` How convenient: having missed the bus, the cab, the jitney, and even the pedicab as smart organizations rushed to sign Latin talent in the past two decades, Philadelphia now has an excuse to look elsewhere.
