BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 A second-round pick nearly ten years ago, Pridie was once seen as a decent outfield prospect with the Rays, but he entered the 2011 season with a grand total of six major league plate appearances. The injury bug in the outfield led to a full-time job for him early in the season, until the Mets realized why he'd been stuck in Triple-A so long. A left-handed hitter who runs well and can play all three outfield positions, Pridie's bat just never developed at the upper levels, and if anything, it has regressed of late. He's becoming a bounce around guy, and his next stop is Oakland, which signed him to a minor league deal.
2011 Jason Pridie can field at any of the three outfield positions, but he projects to be an offensive zero in the majors, limiting him to a role as a defensive replacement. Given that the Mets have several bad knees in the same outfield, Pridie could have value if employed judiciously.
2010 Jason Pridie has speed and the ability to play all three outfield positions, but his bat has stalled at Triple-A and he's not getting any younger, so with the fourth outfielder's role open it's now or perhaps never.
2009 A second-round pick of the Rays back in 2002, Pridie became part of the Twins organization for the second time when he was included in the Delmon Young deal, a spin via the 2005 Rule 5 draft not having taken. As a prospect, Pridie has been up and down the charts faster than Rick Astley; he has great tools, but would he be able to overcome his poor strike-zone judgment and problems making contact? Until 2007, the answer appeared to be no. The test for 2008 was to see if his breakthrough of the previous season was for real; he failed. Pridie's speed and defensive abilities are such that he may yet have a career as a reserve, but anything more than that is doubtful, the high upside looking something like Corey Patterson 2.0.
2008 Consistently inconsistent, Pridie's minor league career has been marked by good seasons, bad seasons, and the occasional injury. Last year was his best yet, however, and included a very impressive second half showing in Triple-A. He has speed, some hitting skills, and gap power, and having been sent to the Twins in the Young deal, will now be one of many candidates trying to fill the crater-size hole left by the departure of Torii Hunter.
2005 What looks like a nice improvement between last year and the one before is really just a dramatic month: Pridie hit .355 and slugged .605 after Aug. 1 to salvage what had been a lousy season. In the end, he had improved by an average amount for a player going from 19 to 20. If he keeps improving at just an average rate for his age, he's not going to reach the majors as anything more than fifth outfielder.

DateQuestionAnswer
2009-12-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)At this point, Jason Pridie is the Twins' extra outfielder. If they sign someone, who would be a good fit? I'm hoping it's not Darin Erstad, who has Gardenhire written all over him.
(russadams from Baffin Bay)
I'd be more afraid of Podsednik (on a self-avenging deal aimed at his former employers, a la Joe Crede), or Reed Johnson as a right-handed bat they could use all three outfield positions, and an overly imaginative reputation for speed and value in center. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-02-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)"I'd like to hear what their excuse for not making a run at signing Adam Dunn is" We have Carlos Gomez, who even though he runs around like a chicken with its head cut off, plays defense! We have Denard Span, who despite having his best year ever last year after years of crap in the minors, we are sure will get better! We have Mike Cuddyer, who does magic tricks in the clubhouse and throws hard! We have Jason Kubel, who showed grit by coming back from an injury! We have Jason Pridie and Luis Matos in AAA, and they both can run fast! We already have the worthless Delmon Young, who I'll trade for a bowling ball! Why add another guy that won't play the Twins way?
(Ron Gardenhire from Metrodome)
I don't know that I can add anything to that except, "Also, he costs money."

...Jim in PA, email me with your bona fides. (Steven Goldman)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Minnesota signs a veteran like Kenny Loften to platoon in CF and play lead off? Will Gomez start the year in AAA or will he beat out Jason Pridie and Denard Span?
(Mike from Minnesota)
No, and they shouldn't bother. If you're going to be an also-ran, why sign Lofton (who can't really play center any more)? And to some extent, they already have one such guy, in that Darnell McDonald is on the 40-man, and he's actually pretty handy. I suspect this will be the big opportunity for guys like Pridie and Span to show something now, while Gomez polishes his game in Triple-A--which he definitely needs to do. (Christina Kahrl)
