BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 In his third season at Birmingham, Christian Marrero showed continued patience and improved power, but he’s a liability in the outfield, and “third season at Birmingham” speaks volumes about his bat’s suitability for first base.
2010 Marrero has put up good numbers in the minors, but to make it as a first-base prospect your numbers have to be better than good, and Marrero's attempts to cut it in the outfield came up short. To the positive, he's young, and he made a clean jump to Double-A, but he needs to do more to avoid winding up as a Brandon Allen-style bargaining chip.
2009 Christian Marrero’s full-season debut exposed his impressive 2007 showing as little more than a 20-year-old repeating Rookie ball.
2008 The older brother of Nationals prospect Christopher, Christian Marrero is a 2006 draft-and-follow with plus power. His future anywhere but first base is hopeless, so he'll have to slug his way up the ladder.

2008-06-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)KG, glad to see you don't let these sheep get away with making the super obvious Sex and the City digs. It really isn't a bad show. Thoughts on Christian Marrero's slow start? Still love Brignac?
(James282 from NJ)
That's right, sheep. I'm still high on Brignac, but some scouting reports are coming in on Marrero that are NOT good. I'm gotten some bad reports on the body, and it sounds like he's really flying open on his swing and pressing hard. (Kevin Goldstein)
