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 Hernandez has handled some aggressive assignments with aplomb, though he wasn’t quite ready for Triple-A last year. He looked good in Double-A, though, smacking the ball all over the place and cleaning up his approach from High-A in 2011, resulting in a 3 percent improvement in his strikeout rate. His speed was evident when he used his gap power for 26 doubles and 11 triples, but the horrid 16-for-28 stolen-base rate shows that his baserunning instincts need work. Hernandez's defense is fine. He just needs to continue honing his offense and he could find himself succeeding Utley.
2011 Cesar Hernandez showed very good contact skills in the New York-Penn League, but his secondary skills are unlikely to develop much further.
