YearComment
2002 Could Veras really be done? It seems unlikely; he posted a .278 EqA in 2000, and his loss of speed in 2001 could just be a result of a longer-than-usual recovery time from the torn ACL he suffered in July of 2000. Veras is, at best, Luis Castillo—a second baseman with some walks and little power, but whose value largely depends on how many plink hits fall in for singles. He’s certainly worth a chance.
2001 Through July 14, the day Quilvio Veras blew out his right ACL, the Braves scored 5.08 runs per game and were 54-36. After losing Veras, they scored 4.88 runs per game and went 41-31.

If Veras doesn't get hurt, the Braves could have an easier road in September. Does that change the Division Series? Probably not, but you have to wonder just how big an impact losing the team's first real leadoff hitter since Otis Nixon had.

Veras has been a fragile player for six years, but he's also been one of the best leadoff hitters in the game when healthy. He'll be a good signing for some team as long as that team accepts that he's going to miss 30 or so games.
2000 “Q” was not done recovering from offseason shoulder surgery when he put up woeful numbers in April (.192/.291/.274), but he hit well after that and ended up with another good season. Look for him to steal more bags next year; he stole 18 after the break as his health returned. Now a Brave, he fits their desperate need for a leadoff hitter who can get on base, and should have his best season since 1995.
1999 A fine leadoff hitter, Veras had a nice year in 1998. For some reason, he has a rap with the local media of not being patient enough at the plate, though he's always drawn lots of walks. This year was no exception, and he hit for some pop besides. He's got an ugly, ugly swing, and looks like he's dislocating his shoulders while he's swinging through, so maybe it isn't a coincidence that he's having offseason surgery on both his shoulders.
1998 A fleet switch-hitting second baseman who looked like he’d be a fixture in Florida following his successful 1995 rookie season, Veras has been dogged by injuries ever since. He’s got great patience and is a prototypical leadoff hitter when he’s healthy, which he wasn’t completely in San Diego last year. He’ll be one of the better second baseman in the National League through the millennium. He won’t hit 30 doubles; some years, he doesn’t hit that many balls in the air.
1997 A bizarre fall from grace for Veras, who’s still a very good player. He was hitting about as well as in his much-heralded rookie season, but his base stealing, which was never all that good, went to pot. The Marlins’ offense was scuffling and they needed a scapegoat, and they inexplicably chose Veras. Then again, it’s hard to criticize the Marlins for replacing Veras with Castillo, who projects to be a much better player. He’ll make the All-Star team a couple of times before he’s through. Traded to San Diego, where he should be the starting second baseman.
1996  The irony with Veras is that the mediots consider him a good leadoff hitter because he steals tons of bases, when in fact he gets caught stealing so often that he doesn't help the Marlins much with his running game. What makes him so good is the fact that he walks an incredible amount, and has throughout his career. His 1994 season was ruined by injury, but for the rest of his career he's consistently put up .370-.380 OBPs, and that should only get better. One of the six best second basemen in the game today.
