BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Schmidt was called up by the Diamondbacks in May when Miguel Montero went down with a groin strain, starting a single game behind the plate before the incumbentís health returned. He was recalled when rosters expanded in September, but manager Kirk Gibson's preference to ride Montero down the stretch limited Schmidt's playing time. Schmidt has made solid contact throughout his minor-league career, but he rarely walks and has middling power. His struggles to control the running game limit his utility. Claimed by the Rangers on waivers, Schmidt will take his White Goodman mustache to the AL West in an attempt to carve out a career as a backup catcher.
2012 Konrad Schmidt is a Henry Blanco injury away from being a marginal major leaguer for life. He lacks Blanco's arm and receiving skills, but he has the body type down, and a better bat.
2011 Konrad Schmidt has derived most of his minor-league success from zany BABIP figures, but when the dust settles he could make for a decent backup catcher. He's shown a knack for being patient at the plate, comes with an adequate power supply, and has ways of making you talk, but his defense might not be up to snuff.
