BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2019  Due to publishing agreements, the 2019 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2019 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2018 If Benintendi didn’t live up to your expectations in 2017, the fault lies with you and with you alone. In his first full season in the majors, Benintendi joined the 20/20 club, hit his way into the heart of the Red Sox order and proved to be a capable defender in both left and center field. He finished second in AL ROY voting, but first among people from this planet (there is no way Aaron Judge is from earth). Benintendi showed more power than scouts once believed existed in his wiry frame, and while his platoon splits were noticeable, he flashed the ability to make adjustments against same-side pitching as the year went on. There’s still room for improvement here—especially on the bases, where Benintendi became one of the poster boys of Boston’s frustrating penchant for running into outs. But all in all, Benintendi proved he’s ready to serve as an above-average regular for many years, and he’s got a dash of star potential as well.
2017 You gotta love when the rich get richer. Benintendi made the journey from seventh overall pick to MLB starter in a little over 13 months, dominating at every level. Despite a slender frame, Benintendi produces solid power thanks to a sweet, compact lefty swing. He’s capable in center, a genuine defensive asset in left and a threat to swipe double-digit bases. But the real stars of the show are Benintendi’s hit tool and approach at the plate. Benny With The Good Hair was a career .312/.392/.540 hitter in the minors, and followed suit by flirting with .300 in Boston. His potent, all-around game makes him a front-runner for 2017 AL Rookie of the Year, and his ascension gives the Red Sox the most talented group of homegrown hitters this side of the North Side. He really should regrow those luscious locks, though.
2016 You have to think former Red Sox GM Ben Cherington was thrilled when Benintendi, the SEC Player of the Year, was there for the taking with the seventh pick in the 2015 draft; in fact, one could say the board fell exactly as Benintendid. A five-tool outfielder who dominated as a sophomore at Arkansas, Benintendi raked in small samples at both Lowell and Greenville, showcasing an advanced approach and more pop than his frame would suggest. While he's got the speed and instincts to make it work in center, his above-average arm makes him perhaps best suited to Fenway's spacious right field, where he can spend his entire career being compared (favorably) to Trot Nixon or (unfavorably) to J.D. Drew, depending on how he emotes post-strikeouts.

2018-12-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)The Red Sox seem to have had an issue developing talent since Cherington left. I know DD traded away some talent, but those that haven't graduated havent gone on to be impact players either. Do they have a more of drafting/player ID issue, or player development issue? Seems more on the pitching side, given the lack of homegrown pitching talent since Lester/Buchholz...
(AJ from Boston)
So, I think there are a number of factors at play here. It's very, very hard from the outside to identify whether failure to "develop" a major-league talent comes from the player themself or the development process ... or how much credit to assign to any one party. For example, do you give 100% of the non-player credit for Andrew Benintendi to Ben Cherington for drafting him, or do you give some of it to Dombrowski for developing him? How much? Do you only look at first-round picks or big signing bonuses, or down the line? And especially with pitchers, how much do you assign "blame" for an injury to *any* party?

Developing a home-grown starting pitcher is really hard, and we haven't come close to the timeframe where we'd be able to judge that for Dombrowski given that he started with the team in the middle of 2015. Ask me again in three years. (Bryan Grosnick)
2017-03-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who will have the better fantasy career between Andrew Benintendi and Nomar Mazara?
(HelpMe from Please)
I'm going to take most of these fantasy-type questions to just mean "better" because I'm not much of a fantasy expert. I really, really like Benintendi, but Mazara's sneakily a year younger and has already done this for a full year at the MLB level. Ask me again tomorrow and I might change my mind, though. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of this Kevin Garnett-esqu trade in a 30 team dynasty league: Andrew Benintendi for German Marquez, Jacob Nix, Brock Stewart, Chance Adams, Taylor Trammell, Luis Urias, TJ Friedl, and Ricardo Cespedes?
(Bob from Georgia)
I have no idea whether this is a good trade or not. It depends too much on too many things I don't know. I don't play dynasty leagues. Best guess: if you're willing to trade present for future, I really like the idea and several of these names. Go for it. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-02-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Player most likely to become the next Mookie Betts?
(Dan from Connecticut)
This makes me want to puke it's so irritating but: Andrew Benintendi. (Trevor Strunk)
2017-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Happy New Year. Who has the better season in 2017 Byron Buxton or Andrew Benintendi? And what numbers would you project for each?
(John from CT)
If we are just looking at the offense, I'd take Benintendi easily. Buxton is still a very good defender in CF so that helps, but I don't think enough to get him past Benintendi. Maybe .250/.300/.400 for Buxton and .290/.360/.475 for Benintendi. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-12-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect makes the biggest impact in the majors this year?
(Buddy from Peoria, IL)
So ... Moncada is the easiest answer, but I think when you factor in team context, my money's on Andrew Benintendi. I think he's a three-win guy next year, plus the Red Sox are going to be really important as far as the AL landscape goes. (Bryan Grosnick)
2016-11-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)If Michael Conforto was never called up until this past September, where would we be seeing him on prospect lists this offseason?
(Lawrence from Queens)
My colleague and co-host Jeffrey Paternostro and I have pondered this on the podcast a few times, Jeffrey wrote a fake article on it for BP Mets, and I had to ponder it for the Mets U25, so there's a lot of thought into this one.

I think easily global top ten, and probably top five, because based on his MLB and limited Triple-A numbers he'd have really destroyed the PCL to a level we haven't seen a ton had he spent a full year there. Would he be that far off Andrew Benintendi? Would he even be ahead? (Jarrett Seidler)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)J.P., I have an embarrassment of riches in my 20-team, 25-man roster 5x5 dynasty league. This was a rebuild year for me, and right now, my SS are Anderson, J.P. Crawford, Swanson, and Rogers. We can only keep 20 from year to year with no penalty, and the league has a penchant for valuing players weirdly (I got offered Mauricio Cabrera for Andrew Benintendi straight up). Do I use my stash to overpay for positions of need in a spread out league like this? Or should I just wait for these beautiful prospect flowers to bloom?
(Tim L from Sonoma Stompers HQ)
The easy cop-out answer is to gauge what kinda interest other owners in your league have in your players. Find which owners like your players more than you do and try to make something work. Waiting for prospects to "bloom" is tricky, especially when you *want* to move them. Aaron Blair was a hot trade piece prior to the season and now probably can't be given away. The same with Luis Severino. Prospects who haven't had a chance to fail yet always bring a higher return than guys who are known quantities. (J.P. Breen)
2016-08-24 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Andrew Benintendi nailing down the LF starter slot for the Sox in 2017? Or will other considerations (e.g. service time, poor spring training, platoon splits) weigh heavily come April 1st of next year?
(Paul from DC)
I think he's nailing it down. Can't rule out the possibility that Dombrowski trades him for a 31-year-old, though. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-06-16 21:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Andrew Benintendi opens the 2017 season with the Red Sox? Furthermore, what's a realistic ceiling? .290 AVG with 20 HR and 15 SB?
(Duke from TN)
Nope, I think he starts in the minors. Also I think that's a little high on the average, but the other numbers seem reachable. (Bret Sayre)
2016-06-21 20:00:00 (link to chat)How would you order these OF prospects in a shallow dynasty league, and are they all basically the same tier? David Dahl, Austin Meadows, Andrew Benintendi, Victor Robles... Thanks.
(Joey from Michigan)
Excellent looking group. I like your suggestion that they're all in the same tier. Meadows is the only one to reach AAA so far but he probably has the least upside of the group. Robles is the youngest of the group and the only one who hasn't reached the high minors yet but he probably has the most upside (and the highest likelihood of flaming out and never reaching the majors). (Scooter Hotz)
2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)Yoan Moncada and Andrew Benintendi have been too good for A ball so far. If they keep at it, how long will they be there?
(Wendell Rijo from Portland)
I'd assume both at least spend the first half of the season there. As Adam noted in his write-up this morning, High-A was already an advanced assignment for Benintendi, and same for Moncada. That both are thriving offensively is great, but there's additional seasoning and development that goes into it as well. I'll get a look at Portland when I go back to the homeland for a couple weeks in August, certainly hoping both have made their ways to AA by then.

2016-04-19 12:00:00 (link to chat)Which of the following prospects will be in the majors by the start of 2017? (Bradley Zimmer, Andrew Benintendi, Francis Martes, Ramiel Tapia, Ian Happ, Jorge Mateo)
(Taylor from Brookings)
Tapia, Zimmer. Maybe Martes, depending on team need. (Adam McInturff)
2016-03-14 14:30:00 (link to chat)Who should I take in the 1st round? Nick Williams, Lewis Brinson, Andrew Benintendi, Victor Robles. Who should I take in the 1st round? (Feel like Williams has a higher ceiling than Brinson)
(Mike from New Jersey)
I'd take Williams. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)What is your projected stats lines for Victor Robles, Bradley Zimmer and Andrew Benintendi? Please rank them for fantasy dynasty purposes. Thank you.
(TrickDaddy14 from Love da kids)
Trick do, in fact, love the kids. I wouldn't dear give projected stat lines, but ranking for fantasy I'd go Zimmer, Robles Benintendi. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nick Williams, Andrew Benintendi, Lewis Brinson, and Nomar Mazara: who do you think is best in real life and in fantasy?
(nubber from tx)
Mazara. Always go with Mazara. Did you see that homer yesterday? Googily moogily. (Christopher Crawford)
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Raimel Tapia over Andrew Benintendi and Anthony Alford? Please explain, as I feel he has lower defensive value, lower floor, and lower offensive upside than those two. If you wanted to argue the floor being similar to Alford ok, except Alford can stick in CF. Benintendi seems a completely different class. Thoughts here?
(CharlieWerner from York PA)
I think, ultimately, it's quibbling, because we're talking about a 4-spot difference in the rankings, and that preferring one to the other lands in the zone of "reasonable minds differ." That said, I personally prefer Benintendi to Tapia at this point, because I like his chances of sticking in center better. I'm not sure I agree re: overall upside though, as Tapia's contact ability is extremely high, and while I don't think there's significant power on the way, if it does develop, we're looking at an offensive monster. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)If you could choose any 3 for a dynasty league who would you choose between Brendan Rodgers, AJ Reed, Bradley Zimmer, Victor Robles, Andrew Benintendi, Rafael Devers? Note the scorable categories are singles, doubles, triples, HR, RBI, runs, batting avg, OBP, SBs. 10 team only 50 minor league keepers total in the league, so general value ceiling over floor. Thanks!
(Rusty Greer from Texas)
Rodgers, Robles and Zimmer for me, with Devers right there as well. I could see Reed being swapped in if you want someone closer to the majors, too. But just based on upside I'd leave him out. (Matt Collins)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)Your thoughts please regarding Andrew Benintendi. He seems to be a rising star in a system full of stars. Will he stick with the Sox?
(John from CT)
I love Benintendi. I saw him a bunch in Lowell this year and he blew me away. Now, to be fair, he was the college player of the year so he should kill NYPL competition away, but he was still really impressive. And he kept hitting after his promotion to Greenville, too. There are enough questions with the current outfield and he should move quickly enough where I think he'll stick around. (Matt Collins)
2016-02-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)IMO, Andrew Benintendi has the tools and makeup to be the next fantasy star... What do you project for him statistically?
(Andre Dawson from The Ivy)
I am also very high on Benintendi. I think he could turn in a season or two of .300 batting average and 20+ home runs at his peak. (Greg Wellemeyer)
2016-01-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can you please rank the following outfield prospects on how much you like them in terms of future fantasy potential? Andrew Benintendi, Trent Clark, Kyle Tucker, Daz Cameron and Cornelius Randolph. Thanks for the chat!
(big time timmy jim from somewhere)
I would go Benintendi, Tucker, Clark, Cameron, Randolph. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-09-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Al, can you give us a couple prospects that are flying under the radar that we should know about?
(Jpilgrim from Jenks)
I don't know about "under the radar," but I think Luis Ortiz is a stud. Jose Mateo sounds like he could fly up. Clint Frazier and Lewis Brinson probably moved up big time. Jordan Patterson on the Rockies really impressed me as well. Red Sox 1st rounder Andrew Benintendi wowed people in the NYPL. Victor Robles on the Nats in the NYPL too. (Al Skorupa)
2015-08-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Andrew Benintendi show this kind as he moves up the latter?
(Manny from being Manny)
Benintendi will be an interesting follow, yeah. Really popped up on everybody this swing, MLB orgs included, as it was unclear until pretty late that he was draft-eligible. Lots of skepticism given the out-of-nowhere ascent, but so far so good in his transition to wood bats & pro arms. Mark Anderson liked what he saw a couple weeks ago: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=27275 (Wilson Karaman)
