BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 A solid defender in his own right, Pina is destined for backup status behind the more accomplished Perez. Like his counterpart, he suffered a torn meniscus in spring training. After undergoing surgery, he finished the season healthy in Double-A. The last two years, he has made strides in pitch recognition, which has pushed his OBP to above-average levels in the minors, but he's still a work in progress at the plate. If hes to offer value as a backup, hell need to remain patient once he gets his shot at big-league pitching.
2012 Pina is an excellent defensive catcher, but his bat will ultimately impede his opportunity to ply his trade at the major league level. Last summer was the first time in his minor league career he posted a respectable OBP, thanks to improved plate discipline. However, the improvement is relative. He still has a difficult time controlling the strike zone. When the Royals decide Brayan Pena is too expensive for their tastes, Pina will stick with the team as a backup to Salvador Perez.
2011 An excellent defender behind the plate, backstop Manny Pina has yet to show much with the bat.
2010 Good-field/no-hit catcher Manny Pina should eventually figure into the team's reserve backstop plans.
