Player Profile: Brian Bocock

I have two cards of Brian Bocock. This one is from 2008 SP Authentic Rookie Exclusives.

Playing career: Shortstop Brian Bocock was the Giants’ ninth round draft pick in 2006, and two years later he was in the major leagues, hitting .143 in 32 games with San Francisco. He reemerged in the majors with the Phillies for six games in 2010, and has since then played in the Pirates, Blue Jays, Nationals and now Royals organizations.

Blog synchronicity: This is the 2012th post on this blog. In 2012 Bocock played in 93 games in the Blue Jays organization, splitting between AA New Hampshire and AAA Las Vegas, hitting .237 with 2 HR, 34 RBI and 18 SB.

Where he is now: He is now in the Royals organization. In 79 games, splitting between AA Northwest Arkansas and AAA Omaha, he is hitting .269 with 1 HR, 16 RBI and 4 SB.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Brian Boc, ahead of Brian Bockrath, Director of Scripted Programming at AMC. There do not appear to be any other prominent Brian Bococks.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Mike Boddicker.
