BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Maybe Rommie Lewis should have just stayed on the DL, since he posted a second straight season with an ERA above 6.00 at Las Vegas.
2011 Lewis is a big lefty with the sort of fastball/slider repertoire one would expect from a pitcher with his frame. He also throws a curveball, giving him three decent pitches. A former Orioles prospect, Lewis sat out the 2005 season and took a job as a pizza delivery boy, but returned to a potentially more lucrative profession that also rewards accurate deliveries. His biggest challenge will be harnessing his command, but should he do that he'll have value, at least against lefties. Placed on the DL with shoulder soreness at the end of 2010, Lewis will try to win a job and a roster spot during spring training.
2010 Plucked out of the Orioles' system, 27-year-old former prospect Rommie Lewis is a big lefty with a low, three-quarters delivery and the accompanying severe platoon split.
