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 Moore needed just 29 games in Triple-A before the Nats deemed him worthy of the call, though as with Harper, their options were limited by mounting injuries. The power-heavy college product rewarded the teamís trust with a quality debut that included a team-high .513 slugging percentage, though in only 171 plate appearances. His emergence has made re-signing LaRoche less of a priority: The addition of Denard Span pushes Michael Morse back into the infield, making LaRoche expendable and leaving Moore to back up Morse.
2012 Moore's ridden the age train in the minors. He lit up the scoreboard in the second half of 2010, but with a pretty lackluster control of the strike zone and a batting average that paid the price for it. He had a similar year in Double-A in 2011, again popping 31 home runs, but also bearing a BB:K ratio that doesn't bode well for future development. He did tighten his swing up somewhat, but that effort doesn't seem to have borne fruit in the batter's box just yet. For a bomber, walking 30 times in Double-A (including intentionals) while fanning 139 times means there's still a lot of work to do, and the trend is going the other way. Moore's future will depend very heavily on his next 300 PA. Right now, he looks like a .220 hitter with few walks and a few bombs in the majors.
2011 A 2008 16th-rounder out of Mississippi State, Moore was just marking time as an organizational player until he exploded in the second half last season, clubbing the Carolina League at a .348/.404/.716 clip. Because of his lack of strike-zone command, power is really his lone plus tool, but he's a good target at first base capable of scooping errant throws capably enough. Because he's already heading into his age-24 season while making his Double-A debut, he can't afford the slightest slip-up, but if he shows that his second half of last season was no fluke, he'll put himself in the Nats' post-All-Star-break picture if they haven't secured a solid first-sacker in the meantime. Yes, it's possible Tyler Moore is gonna make it after all.

2012-05-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Name a handful of current bench players you see carving out a role and producing fantasy worthy numbers?
(Ridin'thepine from Splintersville)
Obviously things would have to break right for each of these guys, but here goes: Jeff Keppinger, Kosuke Fukudome, Brent Lillibridge, Tyler Flowers, Johnny Giavotella, Dave Ross, Juan Francisco, Tyler Moore, Adrian Cardenas, Chris Snyder, Allen Craig, Wilin Rosario, Nate Schierholtz (Derek Carty)
2012-04-23 14:00:00 (link to chat)I love the Daily Hit List, at least now that the Nats are near the top. If they don't start hitting, though, I don't see that as sustainable. It appears that the Nats are trying to get Tyler Moore to play LF so he can provide some of the needed pop. Assuming that some of that translates as it has every time he has moved up, would it make sense to have him learn LF in the bigs so that we no longer have to see Xavier Nady or even Roger Bernadina?
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
Thanks! The Hit List is fun to write, so I'm glad you're enjoying it. I understand we are endeavoring to add comments soon so that should make it even more interactive.

I agree the Nats will need some more offense if they want to make the next level, proverbially speaking. My guess though is that any additional offensive boost will come in trade. Unless you think Bryce Harper can play in the majors now. I'm dubious of that, but I'd bow to Kevin Goldstein if he has a different answer. (Matthew Kory)
2012-03-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi. What are your thoughts on Tyler Moore? What's his ceiling and where does he play when he reaches Washington? Thanks
(Internet Bullies from Binghamton (2nd most obese City in U.S.))
His ceiling is a second division starter, so I don't think there are any guarantees there for him in Washington. (Kevin Goldstein)
