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).
2012 If Jamie Moyer is the comp-of-death for soft-tossing minor league lefties, Mark Grace is the hysterically optimistic comp for slick-fielding, powerless first basemen. Mike Scisocia evoked Grace when Navarro started hot in the Cactus League, and as far as his defense—he won the PCL's Gold Glove at the position—and contact skills, sure, one can sort of see it after a few beers. But few with that skill set ever hit enough to carry the position, and even Navarro's breakout season in Salt Lake was unimpressive in a league where entire teams were slugging .490. He's buried behind Kendrys Morales and Mark Trumbo on the depth chart, but a September call-up joined him with Buster Posey, David Murphy, and Anthony Chavez—0.93 ERA in 10 career innings—as the Angels' only 50th-round picks to qualify for a big-league pension.
