BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2002 Beware the moniker “Closer of the Future,” for it is thrown around with great abandon. Nickle, the bounty brought in when the Phillies dumped the Gregg Jefferies problem on the Angels, looks like he might be a middle reliever, which makes him about as valuable as a hundred or so other pitchers kicking around the high minors. He has a shot to be a good setup guy; barring a major step up in performance, that’s about it.
2001 Doug Nickle puts a lot of effort into studying hitters and situations, and the work is starting to pay off. He could use at least a half-season at Triple-A, which should be just enough time for Jose Mesa and Ricky Bottalico to be booed out of the Eastern time zone.
2000 I was all set to make jokes about the Phillies having traded Gregg Jefferies for a wooden Nickle. Then he went out and had a good season. Nickle was 24, which is old for the Florida State League and explains why his translations don’t look so great. His performance may suffer at higher levels.
