BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2002 Reith was pressed into action after other potential call-ups broke down, and the extent to which he’d been rushed showed. He made a good initial impression on Boone for his gutsy performances under fire, but the self-immolation got to be a bit too much of a habit. Reith has good mechanics for a big pitcher, but he doesn’t dial up his heat much higher than 90 to complement a slider and change-up. It’s likely that he’ll spend 2002 regrouping in Louisville.
2001 Brian Reith was the "other guy" acquired in the Denny Neagle trade, a 6'5" right-hander with good command. He immediately became the second-best pitching prospect in the Reds' system. Long term, he's a fantastic prospect due to his control; in the short term, he'll have to adjust to better hitters.
1999 Do you know how hard it is to have a DT-ERA of 3.74 while pitching in the Sally League? About as hard as getting Rany Jazayerli to attend a meeting of the Herk Robinson Fan Club. Unarmed. Reith didn't get a whole lot of ink for his performance, and standard caveats apply, but the Yankees' system has been thinned out, and he could be on everyone's list by June.
