BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 Look at what Jon Knott, Jay Gibbons, and Aubrey Huff have done over the past three years and try to discern any significant differences among them. In terms of total production, the difference is slight; the others don't strike out as much and have prettier batting averages, but Knott draws more walks and hits more homers. Gibbons and Huff have guaranteed multi-million-dollar contracts; Knott earns a Triple-A salary. We're not saying he's as good as them; we're saying the difference isn't worth the money.
2007 Knott came into the game as an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi State, and his four straight seasons with 25 or more homers certainly suggest that teams can benefit from finding the guys that those who grab only the low-hanging fruit miss out on. Still, Knott`s prospectdom is summed up by his name; signed to a minor-league deal by Baltimore, Orioles fans might be forgiven if they see Marcus Thames` amongst Knott`s comparables and let their hearts go pitter-pat. With Jay Payton and Aubrey Huff already joining Kevin Millar, the odds of Knott being anything more than Norfolk`s cleanup hitter seem pretty remote.
2005 The Pads are a team with as little wiggle room on the corners as any in baseball, between no-trade cases Nevin and Klesko, star player Giles, and young guns in Burroughs and Nady. As a result, the Padres find themselves with an interesting dilemma. Between Tagg Bozied, Jake Gautreau, Greg Sain, and Knott, the Pads have a group of decent power hitters in the high minors without obvious defensive positions. If two or three of these guys net one legit center field prospect ora good, young arm in trade, mazel tov. Tip o' the cap to the Padres just for getting this far with Knott; signed out of an open tryout camp, he defied the odds for years, smoked Triple-A pitching in '04, and made the show for good measure. An AL team looking to save money on a productive part-time bat could do a lot worse.

2008-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of non-prospects -- when Burrell walks, can Phils phans hope for 50% of Ryan Ludwick from Jon Knott? Isn't it time Knott got his chance somewhere?
(Steve D. from PA)
What's our evidence that Knott deserves that chance? His OPS in Triple-A over the last two years are around .800. So no, no chance he's the next Ludwick, and the Phillies should look elsewhere. (Kevin Goldstein)
