BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2006 After another fine season in the minors, Rakers (pronounced "rockers") got a chance to pitch in Baltimore, and once again was mostly okay. We say "mostly" only because three home runs in 13 innings is actually pretty bad. That`s a direct result of his stuff, which overall isn`t good. His split-fingered fastball is generally excellent, but every once in a while it doesn`t sink. That`s when the hitter gets to take a slow jog around the bases.
2005 Rakers is a career minor league reliever who finally got a taste of the majors last season. The scouting report says that his splitter won't work as well against major leaguers as it does against minor leaguers, which is part of why he's had to wait so long for a chance. Given that he's a got a career ERA of 2.53, he's got a lot of room to do worse and still be an effective member of a big league bullpen.
