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 The club was thrilled with the 21-year-old Suarez's breakout season at West Michigan. He doesn’t have the tools that prospect hounds fawn over, but he is putting up the results to make them take notice. He has the glove to stick at short, too, which only adds to his prospect status. His presence in the top 10 for the organization is no doubt related to the dearth of big-ticket talent in the system, but he is a legitimate prospect. Like a lot of the second-tier talent in the organization, he is a long way out, adding uncertainty to his long-term projection.
2012 Unlike many teenage shortstop prospects, Eugenio Suarez looks like he intends to do some damage at the plate; combine that with terrific hands and a strong arm and he is someone to keep an eye on.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)What can you tell me about Andrew Velasquez of South Bend? Does he have anything that you can get excited about?
(Chris from Phoenix)
Sure. He's annoying as hell. I mean that in a good way. Another guy who I gave that distinction to is Eugenio Suarez. Pesky, aggravating, whatever. Velasquez works hard at the plate to get himself into good counts to hit the ball hard. He has a plan of attack, and doesn't give in. His physical gifts limit him to be sure, but I could see him developing into a nice utility player at the big league level. He's small, but quick and decent in the field. Tries to get the good hop. Arm is average. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the very deapest of dynasty leagues, would you consider Kevin Kiermaier, Jesus Montero, Brock Holt, Brandon Barnes, Bobby Abreu, Eugenio Suarez, Rene Rivera, Steve Pearce, and Juan Lagares. In what order would you rank them of those you would consider?
(Donald from Orlando)
I'd look at Kiermaier, and Holt most among that group. Kiermaier has some nice PT with Myers down and Holt seems to be ready to play anywhere to stay in the lineup. There isn't a lot of disparity in the group, but for this year only, I'd still give Abreu a look, too. Beyond that, Suarez and Montero would be my next two. (Paul Sporer)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)ETA for Eugenio Suarez and Steven Moya 19XBH in a month and only 1 BB in AA..what do you make of that
(BaseballDaddy from your old room)
I think Suarez is pretty close. He's a pretty underrated talent. With the position of SS so down in the majors (it's awesome in the minors of course), a .250/.330/.370 type guy with average defense at a premium position is not a common commodity. Romine, short of the last few games, and Worth have been absolutely abysmal at the plate, and not that great in the field. I think they're going to want to see how he does for ~100 or so AB before deciding if they need to make a move. This all hinges on Iglesias' health, of course.

In terms of Moya, I'm probably the low man on him. He has no barrel control, a long swing, and not much approach. The power is definitely real, but I don't know if it ever plays to utility. I'd keep him in AA for as long as I could. He seems like the type of guy who may figure it out at some point, but I'd wager it's closer to his age 28 season than his age 24. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-17 20:00:00 (link to chat)Where would pop-up guys Eugenio Suarez and Danny Santana fit in your list of recent draftees for Scoresheet value?
(JRMayne from West Coast 'Sheeter)
An insightful question from a man everyone knows, I'm sure! If you're a contending team, we'd have Suarez and Santana ahead of the pack in AL formats, behind only the top tier of Rodon, Aiken and Gordon. Less assuredly contending teams should probably look at the next batch of draftees before taking them. Both Suarez and Santana are over their heads, but we'd prefer Suarez in the long run.
