BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Cortes held his own in 2005, but Hurdle soured on him for relying on his fastball too much; he recorded fewer appearances each month before being sent down on July 17th. He signed with the Giants for 2007, but, like Santa Anna or Paulina Rubio, he`s more likely to return to Mexico after leaving a brief impression upon the United States.
2006 Another reliever of the type the Rockies seem to wind up with, Cortes had all of 6.2 major league innings before 2005 but he had posted excellent strikeout and walk rates in the minors. He excelled against righties (.229/.267/.413) but was no slouch against lefties (.278/.313/.456), and while it`s tough to see him keeping up that performance in Coors after the league figures him out, he`s an example of why it`s silly to overpay for middle relief help.
