BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 An absolutely ginormous catcher with an equally ginormous swing, catcher Colt Morton just doesn't make enough contact to be anything more than an insurance policy.
2008 Shoulder surgery made 2007 a lost year for Morton, who was lapped by Hundley while he rehabbed. The two are similar players, but Morton has a bit more power. His appearance in the majors-he spent September on the roster and got one at-bat-was more about him being on the 40-man roster than earning the call-up. The Padres like the way he catches, and his power seemed to come back after the surgery, so he adds to the deep stable of Pads backstops.
2007 Morton`s a monster-sized backstop who`s surprisingly decent behind the plate and can throw. If you remember the debate over whether or not Jayson Werth would stick as a catcher because he was so much larger than most--as it turned out, he didn`t--Morton is even larger than Werth. There`s something to be said for the theory that a large human being is ill-suited for the squatting that catching requires; it`s like asking an especially beefy Scotsman to toss the caber 160 times in three hours--then bat and run the bases. Appropriately for someone so Bunyanesque, what he hits goes really far when he connects, but his approach is Kingman-esque; he swings at everything and hopes for the best. He`s not a prospect, but if you like your players improbable and unique, you should root for him.
