BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 The change in organizations did little to solve Hartís biggest problem: inability to hit off-speed stuff. In his repeat year at Triple-A after coming over from Oakland in the Carlos Pena deal, Hartís batting average stayed low, his strikeouts stayed high, and he looked totally overmatched against breaking pitches. A batting eye and an ability to tee off on fastballs will take you a long way in pro baseball, but not quite all the way. Hartís future as a major league regular is looking less and less likely.
2002 Hart is a big kid, once called "Little Mac" in Southern Oregon because of his ability to hit prodigious drives. He had lots of trouble with off-speed pitches in Sacramento, and as soon as scouts noticed this trend, he saw the same pattern at the plate as Pedro Cerrano did. He'll have to improve his plate discipline a tad, swing at better pitches, and hit about .290 to get a shot at the first-base job in Oakland.
2001 Jason Hart gets a lot of prospect billing because heís a big slugger in an organization known for bigness and sluggerness--and also because he's won three RBI titles in three pro seasons. Compare Hartís 2000 with Adam Piattís 1999 at Midland. He still gets himself out too often and doesnít always kill pitches on which he commits. Since he shortened his swing and stopped striding into the pitch, heís done a better job identifying pitches. Hart tied with Hee Seop Choi for the AFL home-run title. He needs to improve, but heís young and plays for an organization that can help him do it.
2000 Hart is a big kid out of Southwest Missouri State who led both the Missouri Valley Conference and the Northwest League in home runs in 1998. He hits with power to all fields already, and the A's expect him to hit for even more power and improve as a hitter as he finishes filling out. Be patient: heís a good year and a half away from being close to ready.
1997 Although heís a relatively unknown reliever with some talent, Hart is an extreme flyball pitcher, so Wrigley probably isnít the place where heíll have a future.
