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 Roger Kieschnick's season was cut short due to injury, but in his time on the field he was able to show off his power at the dish. He was able to make up for some of his lost time by playing in the Dominican Winter League.
2011 A toolsy right fielder out of Texas Tech, Roger Kieschnick was disappointing in his Double-A debut before a back injury ended his season at the beginning of July.
2010 Toolsy but equipped with a capacity to disappoint (which dropped him into the third round in the '08 draft), the Giants let the former Texas A&M slugger make his regular-season debut at High-A after letting him get wet behind the ears in the Hawaiian Winter League before the '09 season. Predictably for a product of an advanced college program, he hit well in a hitter's league, but the power and the gifts in right field won't add up to a career if he doesn't master the strike zone. Without adjustments, Double-A is going to be hard on him, but the hope is that he's young enough to make them.
