BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2001 An organizational favorite because of his makeup, Matt Blank is your basic left-hander with four pitches he can throw for strikes, none of them fast. Called up to replace Graeme Lloyd in the bullpen at the start of the season, he was put on the DL in May with a strained forearm that turned out to be a hairline fracture. He should be 100% for 2001, but he’s about eighth on the list of potential starters, and those strikeout rates do not bode well for his future.
2000 The organization loves him because he’s competitive, knows how to use his slider and curve and keeps his fastball low. While he has been outstanding so far, he’s your basic college left-hander who doesn’t throw hard. Out of every five guys like this, one becomes Jamie Moyer; one gets to be Scott Karl and fade out after a good start; one gets to be Doug Johns and eke out a living on the fringe; one gets injured; and one gets to be Blaise Ilsley. As if the Expos weren’t bad enough at stopping the running game, Blank’s delivery is extremely slow.
1999 The organization's pitcher of the year, going 14-3 with an ERA under 2.60 at Cape Fear and Jupiter. He only throws in the mid-80s, relying on control and offspeed stuff to survive. Needless to say, that becomes tougher to live on as you go up the ladder. Could benefit from working more quickly to keep hitters off balance.
