BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Minor-league masher Steven Hill is only notionally a catcher, but having been plucked by Oakland in the minor-league Rule 5 draft last fall, he may finally be able to hit his way into the DH league.
2011 Hill has some juice in his bat, but calling him a catcher is a little speculative, at least in a Cardinals organization that looks down its nose at even mediocre backstops. Heís better behind the plate than, say, Jake Fox or Matt LeCroy, and his power may convince some organization to try him out as an offense-first backup, but itís not likely to be this oneóthe Cards outrighted Hill in November.
2010 Steve Hill got a long look behind the plate in '09 after drifting between the other four corners as the Cardinals try to find a position for his bat and strong arm; a passed ball every fifth game says there's work to be done.
