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 Ross is what happens when a sure thing turns out to be unsure. His return to the Braves never seemed in doubt until the ink dried on a two-year deal with the Red Sox. There is some risk involved in giving Ross a multi-year deal. Older catchers don’t tend to age well, nor do hitters who dabble in the three true outcomes. Still, Ross has been the best reserve catcher in the league for a few years now, and deserves a chance to spread his wings.
2012 Anointing Ross as the new Practically Perfect Backup Catcher now that Gregg Zaun is busy with his new career in television seems just. Ross makes up for not switch-hitting by offering pop and walks aplenty, thus separating him from the typically feckless-with-the-bat reserve backstops. Even with the offensive chops, Ross still brings it on defense—figuring as a plus receiver and avid hunter of basestalers (a career 38 percent kill rate)—and reportedly embraces his role. Expect teams to line up around the block to make him a starter once he hits free agency at season’s end.
2011 The best backup catcher in the business, Ross is the perfect complement to McCann as he's right-handed, plays good defense, and has the kind of makeup and leadership the Braves value immensely. His statistics will always be subject to the vagaries of limited playing time, but many opposing scouts think he's worthy of an everyday job considering the overall catching shortage. Signed to a two-year extension during the 2010 season, the Braves' only regret is that they couldn't get him for longer.
2010 Ross might be the current ideal backup catcher. He doesn't hit for average, but he makes up for it with walks and very real power. Defensively, he shuts down the running game, gunning down 19 of 40 attempting base thieves in 2009, and he carries a career rate of 40 percent. Add in that he bats righty while caddying for a lefty regular. Ross is signed through 2010, and the Braves have made no secret of wanting to keep him around even longer.
2009 Released by the Reds in August, Ross was signed by the Red Sox and called up just before rosters expanded, but he was an afterthought, restricted to late-inning mop-up duty. He's is a known quantity, a hitter who struggles to maintain his batting average while popping just enough home runs to keep things interesting. He did throw in a new wrinkle in 2008, dramatically upping his walk rate despite seeing the same number of pitches per plate appearance as the year before; this should probably be regarded as a fluke. The Braves signed him to a two-year deal to be Brian McCann's caddy, hoping he can at least outhit Corky Miller and Clint Sammons' combined .114 average in 2008.
2008 Ross's 2007 was as bad as his 2006 was good. A late-season concussion kept him out for the better part of August, and he looked shaky even after returning. Ross's defensive problems keep him from being more than a timeshare backstop with the potential to have an occasional hot month at the plate.
2007 Although Ross` season might seem ridiculously out of character, he did hit .258/.336/.556 backing up Paul Lo Duca for the Dodgers in 2003. Ross also played more in 2006 than in any season since he was in Triple-A Las Vegas in 2002, and he hasn`t been an everyday player since 1999, in High-A Vero Beach. Which is all to say that Ross has had a pretty unusual career path already, and it isn`t inconceivable that, after being constantly overlooked, he could be the new Tim Laudner. He`s a good backstop and deters the running game, he`ll take a walk if played regularly, and he can bust a cookie to crumbs when a pitcher makes a mistake. Sharing the job with Valentin, he`ll give the Reds a cheap and effective catching set-up at a time when teams are throwing millions of dollars at Rod Barajas.
2005 Ouchie. There's no way to polish that season. Ross was awful; there was no part of his game that was a positive for the Dodgers. Even in Chavez Ravine, you have to hit more than .170, and striking out in over a third of your at bats isn't good, either. Ross will have to step it up to guarantee himself a roster spot that comes with major league meal money. He's got enough pop to do it, and can be useful if he can ever top .240.
2003 Lo Duca, the next generation? Ross has progressed nicely through the minors, getting better at each level. He’s driving the ball more consistently since learning to keep his weight back longer and after bulking up. His pitch selection is far from perfect, but it’s improving. He won’t embarrass himself defensively either. After declining the option on Chad Kreuter, the Dodgers could have penciled Ross in for the backup catcher’s job had they not picked up two years of Todd Hundley. Tough break for Ross, who’s a sleeper waiting for an opportunity.
2002 Ross has some skills. His defense is considered solid, he can hit for some power, and he will draw some walks. Catcher isn't exactly where this organization needs help. Ross has a shot at a pretty good major-league career, be it in L.A. or somewhere else. If he can bump up his production 10% or so, he has a shot to be Robert Fick off the bench for some team for a long time.
