BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Jonathan Herrera is a glove-first, bat-last infielder whose talents include playing anywhere in the infield, not hitting for power, not taking walks and not hitting very well.
2015 What is there to say about Jonathan Herrera that wasn't already said about Aaron Miles seven or eight years ago? He's a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none, run-of-the-mill utility infielder who lost his job in Boston to Brock Holt's hair.
2014 For a fourth consecutive year, Herrera enjoyed a season as Colorado's plug-and-play utilityman. He logged at least 10 games at shortstop, second base and third base and even threw in a pair of games in left field for good measure. His fatal flaw at the plate remains the same—no power, even with Coors Field's nudge—but his versatility in the field makes him an ideal bench player, especially at pre-free agency prices. His only elite tool is his contact ability, however, and without anything else, he stands little chance of breaking into a starting role.
2013 After spending much of 2011 starting at second base for Colorado and being overmatched by big-league pitching, Herrera settled into a utility role last year. He mainly played shortstop, and although he didn't commit many errors, he also didn't get to many balls. Herrera missed the end of May and most of June due to a right hamstring strain. He also landed on the DL in August with a left wrist infection “caused by his watch.” Herrera isn't a threat at the plate, in the field, or on the bases. He is no better or worse than Alberto Gonzalez. Investing money for his family now would be advisable. So would investing in a new watch.
2012 Herrera won the starting second base job in spring training and provided a spark at the top of the order for about five weeks, hitting .303/.415/.404 through May 7. Then pitchers figured him out and he hit .214/.260/.250 the rest of the way. After losing his job to veteran import Mark Ellis, Herrera ended the season on the disabled list due to a broken right index finger. Herrera, who hit a remarkable .183/.258/.242 at Coors Field in 2011, broke his finger while shutting a door, which is both unfortunate and an apt metaphor for his career.
2011 What the Rockies got from Herrera in 2010 is more or less the player he is. He’s a strong fielder with no power at the plate who can hit .280 (his minor-league career average) and draw enough walks to avoid killing the offense in the eight-hole. That’s better than they got from Barmes in 2010, and more than they have seen from Eric Young Jr., who is just six months Herrera’s junior, at the major-league level. It’s also the profile of a stopgap player best suited for a utility role.
2009 Herrera spent a little more than a month in the big leagues early in the season when the injury bug hit the infield, and hit just enough to not get the call again when rosters expanded in September. He's an outstanding defensive player who can play both middle infield positions, but offensively he's simply a guy who slaps the ball around and runs well. He doesn't work the count well, possess a little more power than Jason Tyner, and his ceiling ends at utility player.
2008 Jonathan Herrera isn't going to hit enough to keep a starting job, but he has the speed and glove to be a backup up the middle.
2007 An athletic middle infielder, Herrera has limited secondary skills, but he is still one to watch for more reasons than his presence on the 40-man roster. The little Venezuelan has the tools to play a good short, although he`s still learning to avoid trying to make the impossible play, and he`s not just a slap-and-dash speed guy at the plate.

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-10-07 14:00:00 (link to chat)If this Cubs team wins the WS and all the main contributors in the regular season show up big in the post season run, how many statues are put up in front of Wrigley and who are they of?
(Lucas from Philadelphia)
They all get statues. To get into Wrigley you will have to climb over statues of Clayton Richard, Jonathan Herrera and Chris Denorfia. (Sahadev Sharma)
2015-06-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)Where do you see Javier Baez fitting in the Cubs infield, they seem to be set?
(joncarmela11 from Detroit )
Right now I don't see a good fit at all. It is possible that they bring him up as a utility guy, to do what they wanted Alcantara to do and play a lot of positions and not be a starter. They could also push Bryant to left field and put Baez at third, but if Kyle Schwarber is going to be up in mid-August that wouldn't really fly either. I think they could find a place for Baez (Jonathan Herrera isn't a fixture by any means) but there are no guarantees. (Mike Gianella)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Javier Baez has looked much better in AAA as of late. Do you think he gets the call soon? Do you believe the speculation that he may be used as the DH when they play in AL parks next week? Also, if Kris Bryant playing in LF tonight a sign a call-up may be soon, does it have to do with Soler being out and needing another body in the OF?
(Shawn from Cubicle)
I feel like we were having this same discussion RE Baez last year...In order: I think it happens soon but I think it also happens after a trade. I think it's a possibility but I wouldn't yo-yo the player like that and he actually has defensive value. Bryant in LF was for Soler who has a sore ankle and well, to get Jonathan Herrera at bats which ¯_(ツ)_/¯ (Mauricio Rubio)
2011-06-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where would you rank Allen Craig amongst NL 2B once he gets eligibility?
(KD from Loop)
Depends how much they play Schumaker. If the PT gets split relatively evenly, he's probably somewhere in the middle, ahead of guys like Daniel Murphy and Jonathan Herrera, maybe in line with a guy like Darwin Barney. It really depends on the PT, though. (Derek Carty)
2011-05-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)When do I make it up?
(Eric Young from Colorado)
The Jonathan Herrera hype is either dying or dead, depending on your point of view and the Rockies are using Alfredo Amezaga some days at second. Anytime now, really, unless the Rockies are waiting for your Super Two date to pass. (R.J. Anderson)
