BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 The Australian Steve Reed. Well, he could be, if he ever gets an extended chance. Nakamura eats up righties with a nasty sidearm delivery and very good command. In brief major league stints, that's translated to a horrific home-run rate, as his strikes get pounded. He got caught in the revolving door in Toronto's bullpen last year and signed with the Nippon Ham Fighters in Japan.
