BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Once highly regarded, Dittler has gone backward in each of the last two seasons. It doesn`t take a statistical genius to figure out that 54 strikeouts in 130 1/3 Triple-A innings isn`t very good. How far has his star sunk? He was outrighted at the end of the season, and nobody bit.
2006 The Indians` 2nd-round pick in 2001, Dittler had a rough Double-A debut in 2004, due in part to soreness in his scapula and lower back. Healthy again in 2005, Dittler saw his ERA drop by almost a run and a half despite a lack of overall improvement in his peripheral stats and a sharp decline in his strikeout rate. The secret to his success was the extreme sink on his fastball, resulting in a 2.7 groundball-to-flyball ratio.
2005 Dirk Dittler failed to follow up his strong 2003, as minor physical problems and a vanishing change-up left him exposed to those hungry hitters in Double-A. Thirty innings for Peoria in the Arizona Fall League were marginally better, so it's back to Akron, not a big setback given his relative youthfulness. With minor refinements he'll be a serviceable starter, but as with all pitchers it's not a question of when but if.
