BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Paul McAnulty once again provided organizational slugging, but his real value is as a mentor to Angels prospects (Trout lived next door in Salt Lake), even going so far as to take on a semi-official role as player-coach in Arkansas midway through the season; his future as a full-time coach is imminent.
2012 Paul McAnulty slugged minor league pitchers for the second year in a row. Unfortunately for him, the Angels didn't lose their starting first baseman to a walk-off-related injury for a second year in a row, so McAnulty never got the call.
2011 Another season of strong minor-league production, another unsuccessful and all-too-brief audition in the majors. Same as it ever was for Paul McAnulty.
2009 McAnulty is a career .304/.395/.493 hitter in the minors who has made only brief and sporadic trips to the majors under difficult circumstances (the Padres always seem to have someone they like more). If he could just find enough playing time to get his wheels greased in the bigs, he could clearly provide the right team with 300 at-bats of good-ish platoon offense under the right circumstances. It's an uphill climb; he's limited to first base and the outfield corners defensively. He signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox over the winter, but their decision to re-sign Mark Kotsay probably eliminates any chance he had of breaking camp with the team.
2008 Bad-bodied Paul McAnulty has yet to show well in three cups of San Diego coffee. Despite this, he still looks like a serviceable pinch-hitter and spare outfielder who would provide good on-base skills
2007 A squat gamer, McAnulty`s another polished hitter off of Long Beach State`s factory line. After last year`s failed experiment with making him a third baseman, the Padres plan to make him the notional youngster in the fight for the club`s open outfield job in left, but he`s not really that young, and his ceiling as a prospect isn`t especially high. His power is all against right-handers (he hit 18 of his 19 Portland taters against them), so he might make a better fit in a platoon with Jose Cruz Jr. than either Sledge or Cust.
2006 As Billy Beane says, nobody`s in this business to sell jeans, but a Fred McGriff-type body is going to get more chances on average than the Cecil Fielder model, all other things being equal. The stocky McAnulty dropped some weight in 2005, and he looked quite a bit livelier in the field and on the bases as a result. Ryan Klesko`s iffy health gives him a shot at some playing time at first base, though the acquisition of Adrian Gonzalez makes the path a little tougher. And look, guys: just because Paul posed with his back to the camera in the Padres media guide doesn`t mean he`s dead.
2005 McAnulty played above the herd at Lake Elsinore, taking pitchers deep into counts, smoking fat pitches for extra bases and taking free passes when he didn't get them. Still, playing as a 23-year-old out of Long Beach State, you'd expect him to dominate in the hitter-friendly Cal League. If he can show the same on-base ability and power at Mobile, he'll be a contender for the first base or left-field job right just as Nevin and Klesko come off the books.

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Paul McAnulty hit another two home runs last night, giving him a Texas League leading 14. He's hitting .345/.438./.676 through 42 games. What is going on with this guy?
(ststirling from Little Rock)
He's a 29 year old professional hitter with big league experience ripping up Texas League pitching. That's about it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-03-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe -- thanks for the chat. Can you update us on your analysis of the Padres outfield situation. Since you wrote your piece, Headley has been sent down to work on defense, DaVanon released, Paul McAnulty given a real looooong look, and Justin Huber acquired from the Royals. Does any of this look like a solution in the making? (Also, any idea when can we expect the next updates of PFM and depth charts?)
(gerry from San Diego)
I don't have an answer on the PFM/depth charts question, but I'll see if I can get one.

As to the Padres, there's not a center fielder in that question. Or camp. Or the system, as far as I can tell. At this point, moving the fences in (hi, CS) might be the best idea. The Pads are going to allow more hits and more doubles than they have in a while. (Joe Sheehan)
