BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Velocity: Everybody's got to have it. The Mets made the World Series on the back of an endless supply of starters who threw everything hard; the Royals had a similar story, but with relievers. Successful major-league pitching seasons in this era of baseball are often built on high-velocity arms, and the finer the control on a particular version of 97 mph gas, the better. Pivetta, acquired from the Nationals in the Jonathan Papelbon Trojan Horse, has the big arm and big fastball numbers to one day hack it in the bigs, but command questions temper any expectations beyond that. He throws two fastballs and two breaking balls, plus a changeup, but currently the only plus thing about any of those is the heater velocity. If three of those five can somehow find their way to becoming even average overall pitches, Pivetta's chances of sticking as a starter increase dramatically. Failing that, the bullpen seems the spot. It's still too early to call, and that volatility makes Pivetta equal parts intriguing and worrisome.

2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)CJ, great job on the reports lately, you and the BP team (besides Craig) have been crushing it. Few questions- 1) Are you going to make a cameo at the BP Milwaukee event? 2) Can you talk Nick Pivetta and Wilmer Difo? I think you saw them both in action this week. Thanks. #MortBlood
(NatsGM from THE NatsGM Studios)
I think this is a good question to open with. Craig will be out at games shortly and the Milwaukee event? I doubt it unless I can get a flight in. I will have reports in on Pivetta and Difo tonight so I think you will see that soon. Short version, Nick Pivetta: backend starter and Wilmer Difo: role 6 SS at peak. (CJ Wittmann)
2014-09-10 12:00:00 (link to chat)Are the Nationals one of the more underrated farm systems? Besides having the best pitcher in the minors, they seem to have a lot of toolsy, high-upside type of guys. And they have Reynaldo Lopez.
(Shawn from Cubicle)
I think they are, partially because I was able to watch Hagerstown all season.

3 impact arms in Gioltio, Lopez, Cole
Nick Pivetta and Jake Johansen have ability
Rafael Bautista, Wilmer Difo, Drew Ward

It's a nice group, and that was basically only Hagerstown. Pedro Severino is a solid defense-first C for Potomac, and they still have a few guys like Brian Goodwin, Matt Skole, etc that could potentially provide impact. (Tucker Blair)
