BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Ben Revere is fast. How fast? He’s so fast, he got into Cool Papa Bell’s bed before Bell could turn out the light. He’s so fast that he covers the two-thirds of the Earth Garry Maddox can’t be bothered to take care of. He's so fast, he got traded before this book was published and we had to re-write this comment. Revere broke out in a big way in 2012, thanks in no small part to his terrific baserunning and defense. He also legged out 43 infield hits, more than anyone else in baseball. Playing mostly right field, in spite of his terrible throwing arm, Revere proved valuable thanks to his phenomenal range, which will only play up in Philadelphia as the new Phillies center fielder.
2012 Revere entered 2011 ranked number 62 on our Top 101 prospects list, but he appeared slated for another season in the minors to shore up holes in his game. Injuries accelerated his timetable and he debuted in early May, when both Delmon Young and Jason Repko were sidelined, and was up for good after Denard Span was concussed in early June. Revere didn't exactly tear up the league; aside from a .311/.342/.368 September, he was sub-replacement level. He finished with the majors' second-lowest isolated power among hitters with at least 400 PA, while his walk rate was in the bottom sixth of that group. Despite plenty of speed—he ranked fourth in EqBRR—and contact ability, the limitations of his slappy approach mean that he has to improve both his BABIP and his walk rate significantly in order to approximate the offensive contributions of a healthy Span. His arm is bad enough that it may not play in center either. He enters 2012 with serious question marks.
2011 The Twins raised quite a few eyebrows when they selected Revere in the first round of the 2007 draft, but the pint-sized outfielder made it to the major leagues three years later as a 22-year-old. Revere has a chance to be a dynamic leadoff hitter, as he consistently puts the bat on the ball and has enough power to reach the gaps. However, he could use more time in the minor leagues to improve his walk rate and stolen-base percentage. He should get that opportunity to begin this season, as the Twins are deep in outfielders at the major-league level. Revere doesn't have the home-run power associated with a corner outfielder, so he faces a serious obstacle in the person of Denard Span, who is signed to play center through 2014.
2010 Revere's 2009 season was similar to his full-season debut the year before: he sliced balls all over the field, almost never struck out, and ran like crazy. Not everything remained the same, for better and for worse; the good news is that he showed an improved approach at the plate, the bad news is that much of his game is still messy, as his routes in center field need work and he has yet to figure out how to fully utilize his speed on the basepaths. There are some scouts who think he's going to fall into double-digit power down the road, but if that doesn't happen, he might just be Juan Pierre... you know, the good version of Juan Pierre.
2009 Listen my children and you shall hear/Of the midnight ride of Ben Revere. And ride this Revere does, having stolen 65 bases in his first 133 pro games and legged out 20 triples. The downside is that "legging out" is not just a colorful turn of phrase—in 531 minor league at-bats, he's hit just 23 doubles and one home run, making Revere a one-base pony. Fortunately for Revere, when you lead the minors in batting average (as he did in 2008), win the Midwest League MVP award, and have the speed to play center, no one complains about that. He makes such good contact that he hasn't yet learned to let the bad pitches go by for walks, something the 2007 first-round pick will need to do to become a top-flight leadoff man.
2008 Revere was widely considered a reach for the Twins when they selected him with the 28th pick in the 2007 draft. The small, slightly-built speedster from Kentucky was projected as a second-rounder or sandwich pick, and was derided as a signability selection by a penurious organization. It has worked out thus far, as Revere has played well in short-season ball in his pro debut. With his profile, however, he'll have to work hard to keep from having the bat knocked out of his hands at higher levels. His speed and defense both play and project well.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Torii Hunter, Denard Span, Ben Revere, Aaron Hicks, Byron Buxton, do the Twins have a fetish for this type of player or what?
(Ace from PA)
Athletic CFs? Who wouldn't? Though, the only real common link between these three is position, ethnicity, and a tie to Minnesota. Otherwise, they're vastly different skill-sets. (Paul Sporer)
2014-05-28 14:15:00 (link to chat)What is the most appropriate way for baseball fans to celebrate Ben Revere's first career home run?
(bobbygrace from DC)
By listening to Sam be a big wet blanket about it at the beginning of today's episode of Effectively Wild. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-08-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Phillies are the 4th largest media market in the USA (A.C. Nielsen). Their projected TV deal is supposed to be at least $5 billion. Are they going to unload for Shin-Soo Choo and Hunter Pence plus a couple of shutdown relievers or continue with this Toothpick bat fraud Ben Revere and that no-talent triple-A bullpen? Is some TV network actually going to pay $5 billion for that?
(Free_AEC from South Jersey)
I can't speak for how the Phillies will spend their money, but they should see a lucrative new TV deal which will allow them to try and reload and get competitive. Their player salaries have been very high, and I’ve wondered how they were able to sustain that through attendance which until this season was off the charts. The new TV deal gets them back in that stage. Now, whether they hang on to veterans that will be deep in the throes of regression is another question. (Maury Brown About Biogenesis and Business)
2013-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)I just sold Michael Bourn for Ben Revere, Roberto Osuna, and Jonathan Pettibone in my 16 team mixed dynasty h2h league. Did I yield enough? We can keep all our players and have 40 man rosters that include 20 minors slots. I'm loaded with bats, and have iffy pitching with Homer Baily as my ace. Thoughts?
(Eric from Iowa)
That's a pretty good return right there. I think Pettibone can develop into a useful piece, especially in your deep league. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat! Could you rank these following players on chances of a breakout season: Kyle Seager, Brandon Belt, Todd Frazier, Ben Revere, Matt Harvey, and Mike Moustakas?
(Derek from Kansas City)
Harvey
Belt
Moustakas
Revere
Seager
Frazier (Zachary Levine)
2013-02-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)H2H dynasty points league, no points taken away for K's or CS, would you rather Ben Revere or Carlos Gomez? Thanks
(Randy from Boston)
If you're not being penalized for K/CS, I'd rather have Gomez. I'm really high on him for fantasy purposes this year and unless he hits .210 he's going to play every day. Revere is a one-trick pony. I'm not convinced any discernible power is coming so he'd have to hit .320 to even be in this discussion. (Mike Gianella)
2013-02-15 12:00:00 (link to chat)in an NL-only 12 team auction league, roughly how would you value Phillies outfielders? It seems crowded with mediocrity, unknowns and worse with Ben Revere, Delmon Young, Darin Ruf, John Mayberry Jr. Domonic Brown and Lance Nix. Any upside here?
(Broken Arrow from Texas)
Revere, Mayberry, Ruf, Brown, 50 feet of crap, Young. In all seriousness, the 1st 2 are the only ones I want to deal with. Ruf went undrafted in LABR which is 29 rounds and 15 teams for a mixed league. (Jason Collette)
2013-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm working on my starting outfield for this season. Who should I play? 500 ABs to Ben Revere? How about Domonic Brown? John Mayberry Jr.? Is Delmon Young better than any of these guys? Where in the world is Shane Victorino?
(Charlie Manuel from the hills of West Virginia)
The only thing I'm fairly confident of is that Delmon is probably not better than any of those guys. Brown and Mayberry can platoon. Shane Victorino has gone to a happier place: the Red Sox clubhouse. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which former Twins CF will have a better season? Ben Revere or Denard Span. I would assume Span due to the lineup around him?
(Tommy from Houston)
Span. Revere's defense is real nice but I don't like the swing and I don't buy him developing secondary skills overnight. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thank you for taking the time to assist me in my journey towards fantasy relevance, and although that is a bit of an oxymoron i will digress to my question, which is, Ben Revere the new Juan Pierre? His peripherals in low and high minors were pretty decent, how likely is it that he can repeat his OBP from last year? Second Question... How likely is it that Billy Butler repeats his HR total from last year... and a third question who will win the superbowl? San Fran is 2 to 1 and i think those are some solid odds. Thank you in advance
(Nasir Jones from NY)
I think Revere can keep hitting for average, so he can post something like a league-average OBP even though he rarely walks. If you buy him for the steals and aren't concerned about the lack of power, he's a useful fantasy player.

PECOTA projects Butler for 20 HR in 637 PA. PECOTA is pretty conservative. I think I'd take the over on 20 and the under on 29.

I'm not kidding when I say that I have no idea who's in the Super Bowl. Or the NFL playoffs, for that matter. Know nothing about handegg. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-01-14 14:00:00 (link to chat)Off the top of your head. Who has a better season Ben Revere or Michael Bourn?
(Josh from Philly)
Bourn. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was impressed by Ben Revere season last year, does he have the makings of a younger Ichiro
(kenny915 from ri)
Kenny from ri, I love your state. While I like Ben Revere a lot, he is not as talented as Ichiro, one of the best defenders I have ever seen with an outstanding and accurate throwing arm combined with the most unique offensive approach I've seen. But he is a very good player. (Dan Evans)
2012-09-24 14:30:00 (link to chat)Is this the offseason in which Denard Span is dealt away from Minnesota?
(Bradley Ankrom from New York)
It seems that way. I don't get it. They've got him crazy-cheap for the next three years, and if they don't think they're going to compete at all in three years, fine, I get that, but then there's a whole laundry list of *other* stuff they should be doing that they haven't been. I guess the thinking is that he and Ben Revere should both be playing CF, but while I love Revere and certainly *can* see him turning into a very good player, I'm not at all convinced that that's what's going to happen, and with his terrible arm, I'm not sure he's not better off just being a really rangy LF. So yeah, I think they will trade him, but I don't really get it. (Bill Parker)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)In mocks, I am seeing a ton of steals still on the board in the later rounds. What is your 2012 philosophy on steals?
(chiefsalsa from Utah)
You're right that there are a lot of late steals in mixed leagues this year. I like Ben Revere a lot for steals. Jose Altuve may be a decent MI speed source. Bonifacio can play everywhere. Even Coco Crisp is like a 15th rounder. Waiting on speed in a mixed league isn't a bad play this year. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any "sophomores" you like to break out this season
(moehk21 from NYC)
I like Ben Revere, Eric Thames, Lucas Duda, Cory Luebke, Danny Duffy, Henderson Alvarez all to various degrees. (Derek Carty)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Michael Cuddyer playing over his head because it is a contract year, or is he one of those players who benefits from playing different positions?
(jhardman from Apex, NC)
Well, I've yet to see a study that shows contract years to have a real impact on performance, but I don't think playing different positions really helps a guy either. That said, I don't Cuddyer's performance is all that unsustainable. Maybe a tick too much power and a bit too much speed, but that's about it. Watch what happens as the trade deadline approaches, though. I wouldn't be surprised to see Cuddyer traded, potentially opening up more playing time for a guy like Ben Revere. That could actually benefit Cuddyer's value, though, moving out of the lowest-scoring offense in the league, out of that park, and potentially to the easier league. (Derek Carty)
2010-10-12 12:00:00 (link to chat)The Twins OF is looking mighty crowded. With guys like Ben Revere and Joe Benson (to a lesser extent) knocking on the door, who do think they might try and move in the off-season?
(Tobias from Minnesota)
They've got the option on Kubel at just under $5MM, which is nowhere near the lock it looked like it would be after 2009. There's also the question of Jim Thome, who is just totally and completely awesome in pretty much every way. One possible solution would be to let Kubel DH and make room in right. But that means no more taters for Jimmers. (Tommy Bennett)
2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Most likely starting CF for the twins in 3-5 years, Ben Revere or Aaron Hicks?
(Corey from St. Paul, MN)
I like Revere, but I love Hicks. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Has Ben Revere's stock moved up/down/or stayed the same this year?
(tfierst from MN)
Unchanged. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-05-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think about the Twins keeping Hicks in instructional THIS LONG?
(tfierst from MN)
The Twins is notoriously conservative with players, so I can't say I'm shocked. I'd also point out that every time I questions what the Twins are doing, be it their development plans, or them drafting weird guys in the first round like Ben Revere or Gutierrez, I quickly learn every time that the Twins are much smarter than I am. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-05-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)Yeah, yeah I know its small sample, etc, but is there any concern over Ben Revere's slow start? His walk levels are returning back to normal, but the power is nowhere to be seen. Small sample size, small sample size, ....... please just be small sample size.
(tfierst from Saint Paul, MN)
.292 with a .370 OBP is a slow start? As far as the power goes, he already has matched last year's HR total with one, he's walking and running more than ever. ZERO concern. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-10-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Keith...that's one more college football player than I could name. Now, back to baseball. What kind of a career do you think Ben Revere will have?
(Adam from DC)
I'm a huge Ben Revere fan. Going into the year, I think I was the only one to have him as Minnesota's No. 1 prospect, so I'm pretty happy about that as well. He's obviously going to hit for average, and he also has surprising pop for his size. He's never going to be a home run hitter, but he's not a slappy guy -- he does drive the ball into the gaps pretty consistently, which also makes me happy because then I get to watch him run. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-09-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Almost exactly a year ago, I asked you for good news about the Twins system and you offered me, basically, Denard Span's second half in Rochester. I'd like to thank you for that and ask another bit of 2008 good news.
(Nightclub Dwight from The Nice Nice)
Ben Revere is really good. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-08-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)With his .303/.399/.484 start in the FSL, how good does the Aaron Hicks pick look for the Twins. And with Ben Revere tearing up the Midwest League, does any team have two better looking CF candidates in their system?
(sodbuster from Wagner, SD)
Great question. Without putting too much thought into it, I'm not sure anything comes close to matching the Twins when it comes to very young tools outfielders with those two and Angel Morales. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ben Revere is fun to watch here in Beloit, but is his game going to translate to the upper levels?
(jlebeck66 from WI)
I really think it is. That guy can just plain hit, and if you've seen him (I see you are in Wisconsin, so I hope you have), you know that he's just not some tiny slap hitter, he drives the ball and gets leverage in a way that kind of reminds me of Erick Aybar. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Ben Revere, could he be the Twins #1 prospect going into next year?
(Brock D from Shakopee, MN)
If you go back in time, I had him as the Twins No. 1 prospect going into THIS year -- and I think I was the only one. Sometimes the squirrel finds a nut, huh? I think he'll likely be No. 1 again. The fact that after 54 games at Low-A Beloit he's still over .400 helps his chances. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)More impressive about Ben Revere...hitting over .400 or that he is 2nd in the midwest league in SLG? Think he can maintain excellent 2B and 3B power as he advances?
(Norville Barnes from Muncie, IN)
I do. He's really interesting to watch because he's so small, but on a power level, he kind of reminds me of Erick Aybar where the bat is so fast that he can drive them into the gaps and you're really surprised to see the ball hit so hard -- he's legit. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-06-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)Knowing what we know now, what player was most underrated in last year's draft besides Heyward?
(Jason from DC)
Off the top of my head, Ben Revere. (Kevin Goldstein)

2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtableYes, and they milk it. And some of those players can be fun. Love Span, looking forward to Ben Revere, though I think Kevin would agree that he had a kind of mediocre season. Still, at some point you have to get some actual players, and even if you are cheap, spend what you do spend wisely. There's no earthly reason that Punto should be the fifth-highest paid player on the Twins after Morneau, Mauer, Cuddyer, and Nathan. (Steven Goldman)
