BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2018 Southport High School in Indianapolis has produced two big leaguers: Hall of Fame outfielder Chuck Klein and fringe outfielder Cameron Perkins. Both started their careers with the Phillies, but only the latter was claimed off waivers by Seattle in December after a respectable repeat of Triple-A.
2015 After hitting well at every stop since he was drafted in the sixth round in 2012, Perkins finally hit a bump when he reached Triple-A. He carried a strikeout-to-walk ratio of just over 2 through Double-A, but it shot up to almost 4 at Lehigh Valley. With doubles power and a high-contact approach, Perkins doesn't profile well in the four corners, but he'll get a chance to launch a career as a bench outfielder sometime this year.
2013 Perkins differs from the super-athletic, tools-laden profiles often found in the Philly system. He's a polished college draftee with some upside to go, tied almost entirely to his bat. His aggressive approach could be exposed as a negative as the competition improves, but that's a facet of his game he can improve. The Phillies drafted Perkins as a third baseman, but last year he played three of the four corners at Williamsport.

2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the problem with Cameron Perkins? No one ever mentions him yet he's the only guy in the Phillies system with a rock solid track record of hitting. Has size and pop and basically seems to be able to rake. Is his defense atrocious? What's the issue?
(Free_AEC from South Jersey)
I'm not sure I'd call short-season in 2012 and 103 games in 2013 as a rock-solid track record of hitting, but I understand your larger point on Perkins. I like him well enough. He's a guy with MLB potential, but the biggest knock on him is the lack of prototypical corner-outfield power. The swing is more geared toward doubles than home runs, which I have a little trouble with given his position. If he continues to rake in Double-A this year, you'll hear him mentioned a lot more, but my best guess is he's still viewed as more of a fringe talent than potential solid regular. (Mark Anderson)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Stephen Piscotty and Cameron Perkins. Other than the spelling of their names how do they differ? Statistically they appear to be the same guy.
(Free_AEC from South Jersey)
Piscotty is a far superior player in my mind. Much better feel for the game, better overall feel for hitting, and a better defender. I'd take him 10 times out of 10 and not even think about it very long. (Mark Anderson)
