BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 There was a buzz around Driskill in June. Its not every day that a 30-year-old rookie goes 50, but ultimately the fairy tale came to an end and he was bounced from the rotation in September. He learned how to throw a split-fingered fastball while in Japan in 1998, but it took him five years to learn how to control it, and major league hitters about a month to learn to lay off it.
1997 Driskill has some of the best breaking stuff in the organization. This year, the Indians decided to see if they could turn him into a starting pitcher after hed enjoyed some success as a reliever. He posted an ERA forty points better than league average, kept the ball in the yard and won 13 games. Overall, the Tribe has to be pleased.
