BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Kody Kirkland is a name for a quarterback, not a baseball player, but that`s the least of his concerns: The kid can`t hit right-handed pitching. At Erie last year, Kirkland`s line against righties was .190/.253/.366, with 117 strikeouts against 12 walks. Kirkland is a big, physical player with a great arm at third base, but unless he starts channeling the platoon splits of John Lowenstein instead of Mickey Klutts, he isn`t going to make it.
2006 Originally a Pirate, Kirkland was a PTBNL when the Tigers traded Randall Simon. Yet another Tiger infielder with an excellent glove and a weak bat, Kirkland made great strides at the plate last year, especially recognizing and laying off of off-speed pitches. He`s still a dead-red hitter, but at least he wasn`t completely helpless against crooked pitches the way he had been in `04. The big test of Kirkland`s newfound selectivity will come this year in his first exposure to Double-A.
2005 After falling a step behind Scott Moore in the organization chart at third, Kirkland then had to deal with a slow start made worse by his struggles to hit anything with a little wiggle in it. His task wasn't made any easier, surely, by his awful plate discipline, which completely collapsed over the course of the year. Kirkland is a big guy with some power potential, but short of the general premise that 22 is not too young to learn how to hit, there isn't much to look at here.
