BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2002 Once considered a prize prospect, McDonald has developed into a speedy extra outfielder. He's basically Brian Hunter with more youth, a little bit of upside, some power, and slightly less defense. He can fill a backup role if the Yankees need that, and he probably has more value in that role than Bellinger does.
2000 McDonald hasnít hit for any power since suffering a broken hand in 1997. Analyst Daniel Levine posits that young players may struggle more than older ones when trying to recover from their first injury, with Travis Lee being a significant recent example. Some, like McDonald, never seem to recover completely. His speed and range give him a chance to be a fifth outfielder.
1999 Double-A is the great wall for prospects; some make it over easily, some run into it and others need a little extra time to climb. McDonald looks like he'll one of the strugglers. He didn't get beaten by the Eastern League, but he did scuffle, and will be back at Norwich in 1999. I expect him to conquer the EL this year and advance to Columbus by August. ETA: late 2000.
1998 Tools outfielder with a chance. He was widely thought a lock to be taken in the expansion draft, but the Devil Rays and Diamondbacks went with an A-ball reliever from the Yankees instead. McDonald is extremely fast and showed excellent plate discipline at high A. 1998 is a crucial year for him if heís going to have a career.
