BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Trent Oeltjen lacks10 pop, but he's learned to take a walk, and isn't a liability afield; his future in this organization may hinge on his ability to pinch-hit, a role in which he's 5-for-31 with five walks.
2011 A 10-year minor-league vet, Australian-born Trent Oeltjen wound up in the Dodger outfield in September after another year of pounding PCL pitching, then played for the Sydney Blue Sox in the new Australian Baseball League in the winter. No word on his platoon splits versus dingos and kangaroos.
2010 Trent Oeltjen finally broke through to the majors after nine years in the bushes and made the most of it, but Reno's park produced the power, and fifth outfielderdom is a tough career path in the age of seven-man pens.
2009 Trent Oeltjen hit .238 in Rochester two years ago, but raised that average 79 points last year in Tucson, so we're guessing he likes the weather.
2007 Oeltjen is an Australian outfielder with big league bench potential. He runs well, makes good contact, and he can play all three outfield positions, but he lacks the power or patience for everyday play. As career prospects go, it might not beat alligator wrestling, but no worries.
