BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 Ex-Cardinals closer prospect Carmen Cali filled in during the Twins' injury woes and walked more men than he struck out. He's roster fodder.
2006 A lefty depth guy who would have already moved on to his second career if he wasn`t left-handed. He could bounce around for several years if he just spins his wheels a bit and still have a brief career in the bigs as a lefty specialist. There are hundreds of guys like this bouncing around Quadruple-A and below; most end up working in sales somewhere, but one or two end up with major league careers. You know the odds.
2005 Cali is a generic lefty reliever with good strikeout potential but prone to bouts of wildness. He's undersized, but his fastball touches the mid-90s on occasion. The organization likes him, and he'll likely get a shot in 2006 to stick on the major league roster as a LOOGY.
