YearComment
2008 Perhaps frustrated by being stuck at Triple-A, Nick Gorneault stalled out last year. Claimed off of waivers by the Rangers after the season, he was subsequently non-tendered.
2007 Gorneault is one of a type the Angels seem to collect--decent enough athletes with very little up-side. Like a lot of them, Gorneault was the beneficiary last year of a ballpark that made him look a little more special than he is, as he slugged a hundred points better in Utah than elsewhere. Corner outfielders who slug less than .450 in the PCL don`t have great futures, and Gorneault`s not young. If more platoon jobs existed, he could fill one against lefties.
2006 It was something of a rebound year for Gorneault, although you will note that his numbers are heavily discounted for his Salt Lake environment. Gorneault has always had some power, but the Art of the Strike Zone has eluded him. Still, an outfielder who can swat the occasional extra-base hit is not completely without value. Given Gorneault`s age and skill set, his mostly likely future is as a Rockies` starter or anyone else`s reserve.
2005 Gorneault's middling status as a prospect took a blow in his return to Arkansas. He has some power, and his plate discipline improved slightly. But few hitters consistently hit .320 at any level, and regression in that area hurt Gorneault's overall production. He has a role to play, but given his age, weaknesses, and the players in front of him, he could have the opportunity to get some reading done. Gorneault could probably absorb some lessons in selectivity from Ted Williams' My Turn At Bat while sitting on the bench waiting for his.
