BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Roy Smith is a side-armer the Indians sold to the As for cash. Recruited out of the independent Northern League, he can get guys out in multi-inning relief. The As already have Chad Bradford as a right-handed specialist, and should be able to get good work out of Smith in a relief role.
2002 Baseball's version of Kurt Warner was bagging groceries just two years ago. A stint with the St. Paul Saints led to a job in the Indians' system, and his sidearm delivery took over from there. He gets ground balls and enough strikeouts to be dangerous. What he needs is a team that doesn't have power arms in every nook and cranny of the bullpen.
