BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Rincon is a line-drive machine with doubles power that could develop into home-run power as he matures. He doesn't draw walks or run well, and is an awful third baseman (career .844 fielding percentage in more than 300 minor-league games). The Padres tried sticking him in left field last year, but his best position is DH. If the power comes, Rincon could have a future in the American League.
2012 Edinson Rincon is a right-handed hitter with power potential who is a complete disaster at third base and who missed two months in 2011 due to a left wrist injury before returning in September.
2011 Edinson Rincon followed up a strong campaign in the Northwest League with a poor showing at Single-A, where his slash line dropped precipitously across the board. He is very young—he turned 20 in mid-August—so there is time for his raw skills at the plate to translate into something that might make up for his glove. At present, Rincon looks like a DH playing third base.
2010 Dominican Edinson Rincon is the newest member of the Padres' third-base cadre, but he might turn out to be the best them for his plus power and discerning eye.
