BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 The power is still there, but the defensively challenged Brandon Waring hasn't improved his plate discipline enough as he's climbed the ladder to make people believe he can be a major-league regular.
2012 Possessor of great power, Brandon Waring has spent two full seasons at Double-A working on his plate discipline and defense, but striking out 30 percent of the time still isn't good enough to have big league impact.
2011 Waring is the last remaining player from 2008ís Ramon Hernandez deal with the Reds, and his chances of having any kind of significant impact are declining. When he makes contact, the ball often goes far, but he doesnít make contact all that often. By no means a top defender at third, the Orioles have also had Waring play first base and left field. In attempting to expand his positional repertoire, they are on the right track; given that Waring would struggle to hit .250 in the majors, his best chance at a career would be in a four-corner reserve/platoon role.
2010 Brandon Waring led the Orioles organization in home runs, but was old for his leagues, is a defensive liability, and comes with a strikeout/walk ratio that has been banned for human use in more than 20 countries.
2009 Traded to the Orioles in the Ramon Hernandez trade, Brandon Waring is a potential power bat for the hot corner, but is still a bit raw and was old for the Midwest League.
