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 Youth is a time for extremes, a truism that Peters frequently attempted to push to its limits at High-A last year. He is a large man, comparable in physicality and plate-side demeanor to a budding Jayson Werth for the next generation. And while a spry athleticism underlies his movements, length often bedevils them. His swing, unbridled and powerful, can struggle to migrate from Point A to B efficiently enough to catch a halfway-decent fastball. And he'll offer his share of helping hands to the pitchers by obliging their trickery outside the zone, often with unhinged flails. When he does catch one with the barrel, however, it turns around in a hurry. Plus-or-better pop pairs with solid speed, quality instincts and improving reads in center, along with enough arm strength to accommodate a likely eventual shift to right. It's a classic slugging profile, provided maturity curbs some of his enthusiasm.

2019-10-30 16:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Craig, I'm still not talking to you, but what *realistically* would be an acceptable Lindor trade package? I'm fully prepared for it to be more underwhelming than it should be. To steal from a wildly successful and rollicking podcast, Thanks, I Hate It.
(Mark from The Bad Place)
Okay, so this is picking up on a rumor that Jon Morosi was peddling that may or may not be related to what I wrote in my Dodgers 2020 Hindsight piece. Morosi, stop stealing my bits for news! Anyway, the Dodgers are interested in Lindor and I think there are two ways for Cleveland to go about it from them. One involves Corey Seager as a centerpiece. What he gives you now is the same two years of team control as Lindor, a lower ceiling (but not THAT much, he was a 5+ win player in recent memory), and lower overall cost than Lindor. I think you fill that out with maybe one other significant prospect -- Keibert Ruiz might make some sense with the ascendance of Will Smith and Ruiz's down-ish year, plus maybe a DJ Peters type? Maybe a flier like Gerardo Carrillo (one of my fav arms in that system).

If you're not going with Seager I think you look to start with May or Lux and go from there. I don't know that you get 2/3 of them and Ruiz, but you might be able to pry Jeter Downs as a future shortstop type if you're not getting Lux. The Dodgers haven't tended to part with guys that are part of the current team so I don't know if May/Lux is feasible, but you could also chase an Alex Verdugo, potentially since the team is deep in outfielders. Could also work a throw in like an Edwin Rios, who flashed briefly. Rios types aren't major additions to the deal but he's ready now-ish and could contribute as a DH/1B type. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-01-25 16:00:00 (link to chat)It looks like y'all forgot to include my main man DJ Peters... when will the revised list with him on it come out?
(twodaysride from Atlanta)
I will forward to your comment to the Prospect Department. (Jon Hegglund)
2018-04-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)Which prospect outside the top 100 has the best chance to shoot up the rankings this season?
(Dave from Williamsburg)
Khalil Lee would be my answer, but if you're guiding yourself by our BP Dynasty Top 101 (where he's 97th), I'd flip my answer to DJ Peters. Get in now while the buzz is relatively quiet on him. (Eddy Almaguer)
2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)DJ Peters is up to 18 HR and got a decent 55/50 OFV outlook in his Eyewitness account back when he was graded with 60 power. If he can get that power up, as his HR numbers are indicating, would he be a back half of the 101 candidate?
(heterodude from PHI)
The key here is less amping the game power in the Cal, and more if he continues to get it into games at higher levels given his size and long levers in the swing. Wilson's grades were in line with what we gave Renfroe though, and he snuck on this year. That also elucidates some other risks in the profile. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
