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 Score (another) one for Jeff Luhnow, picking up a very good catching prospect on the sly. Perez is not high on prospect lists yet, due to repeating Single-A after a disappointing 2011. But he profiles as an average defensive catcher, and won his team's MVP award three straight years in short-season ball. While his High-A stats were inflated by an unsustainable BABIP, he makes solid contact, which should make for solid average. With more than 10 percent of his at-bats resulting in extra-base hits last year, he is developing the average power scouts expect. Though catchers develop more slowly than prospects at other positions, Perez appears on track to league-average hitterhood, i.e. well above average for a catcher. Not all the talent grabs Luhnow has made will turn out, but plenty will, and he's getting guys with lots of potential in exchange for scraps.
2012 This year was a big step backward for Carlos Perez, who saw his offensive numbers drop across the board.
2011 Proving that there’s no such thing as too many catching prospects even in a system swarming with them, Perez is young and plenty projectable. Playing in the New York-Penn League, Perez continued to show excellent contact skills, but what stuck out most was his much improved plate discipline. He’ll fill in as he develops as a catcher, so there’s reason to think that power will manfiest down the road. With Arencibia and d’Arnaud ahead of him, the Blue Jays will have little reason to rush him.
2010 Venezuelan catcher Carlos Perez showed some facility with the bat in his stateside debut last year, making his upcoming full-season debut worth watching—the Jays may have an actual prospect!
