BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2018 Due to publishing agreements, the 2018 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2018 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2017 Pretty much everything Victor Caratini does, someone else in the system does better. A backup catching spot in Chicago is a possibility late in 2017, but a 2018 arrival is more likely.
2015 Victor Caratini is a catcher with a maaaaaybe plus hit tool, which is plenty.
