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 Arizona's second of two consecutive first-round picks in the 2009 draft, Pollock has the talent to be a future cog in a major-league outfield, though the presence of Parra and Pollock's similar skill set clouds his future in Phoenix. Pollock's offensive potential is heavily reliant on bat control to hit 'em where they ain't, and a lack of secondary skills puts tremendous pressure on the bat to continue spraying liners from gap to gap. The Notre Dame product can play all three outfield positions, while his makeup and baseball instincts receive high grades that should allow his performance to outplay his raw tools.
2012 Look up “tweener” in the dictionary, and—well, okay, you probably won’t find a picture of Pollock peering out at you, unless the editor had a large art budget and a keen awareness of Double-A prospects. Still, “tweener” is the term most often associated with Pollock, whose defense in center is still seen as fringy and whose bat isn’t quite big enough for a corner. He proved that he wouldn’t be hampered by any lingering effects of the elbow fracture that cost him all of 2010, upping his average from its 2009 level and stealing bases at an 84 percent clip. However, unless the D-Backs think he projects to replace Chris Young in center, he might be of more value to them as trade bait.
2011 A.J. Pollock missed the entire 2010 season with a fractured elbow. Some think he has potential as a 15-homer, 15-steal hitter with a batting average in the .280-.290 range. Others consider him a tweener, a fourth outfielder with little potential. Last year, we suggested that the reader stay tuned to Pollock's development, and in the absence of any further evidence, we'll repeat that recommendation for 2011.
2010 A budget 2009 first-round pick, A.J. Pollock has drawn mixed forecasts. Some see an outfielder capable of being a .280 to .290 hitter with 15 home runs and 20 stolen bases while others feel that he's no more than a hustling tweener. Stay tuned.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you give us any possible breakout candidates for next season from a dynasty baseball league perspective?
(Jake from MI)
I hope A.J. Pollock gets healthy and gets another long look next year, he could be a 15/20 type of guy in that ballpark. Same with his teammate Chris Owings. Those two come quickly to mind. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)What happened to Chris Young (Ari) this year? Will A.J. Pollock and Adam Eaton earn some PT this year?
(Tommy from Flowmont)
Hi Tommy, thanks for the question. I don't think Young ever recovered from his early-season injury. He got off to that great start, then missed a bunch of time, and wasn't right the rest of the year. Seems like the Diamondbacks sold low there, but they know more about their player than I do. Pollock and Eaton are logical candidates to soak up some of his at-bats in 2013. Neither projects as a star but both are as ready as they'll ever be. (Geoff Young)
