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 Sometimes you wonder why an organizational depth player sticks with baseball long past his expiration date as a realistic big league contributor. Enduring countrywide bus trips with 24 other men, surviving on a daily diet of fast food and sacrificing body and brain for an unlivable wage can loose its luster quickly once the race to the big leagues migrates into a more likely marathon toward a coaching gig. Then, you watch a player like Gale, veteran of eight minor-league seasons, bash his first career big-league home run into the upper deck and round the bases with quite possibly the purest smile you’ll ever see on a baseball field (apologies to Francisco Lindor). That’s when you get it.
2016 Rocky Gale, who attended the same high school as Jed Lowrie, provides the defensive consistency his first name would suggest, but also a .610 OPS over six minor-league seasons that fails to earn the sort of vicious connotation conjured by his family name.
