BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Badenhop wasn't quite the groundball machine he had been in 2011, but he was close enough (52.9 percent, down from 58.5). His HR/FB rate rose along with his pitches, to 12 percent from 2.4 (it had been just under 9.0 for two seasons prior). Nonetheless, as a generally low-leverage reliever offering multiple-innings capacity and a 3.58 FIP, he was yet another reason why the Rays boasted one of the best and most cost-effective bullpens in baseball. Traded to the Brewers for Raul Mondesi Jr., Badenhop’s brand of veteran competence can only help Milwaukee’s struggling bullpen.
2012 As the Rays are wont to do each offseason, they take others' castoffs in hopes of turning them into treasures. As luck would have it, the Marlins were planning on non-tendering Badenhop. The Rays sent them minor league catcher Jake Jefferies so that the team could tender Badenhop and put him into the annual bullpen rebuilding project. Maddon loves his toys in the bullpen and Badenhop's career 56 percent groundball rate could find its way into the role Chad Bradford once filled for this team. Badenhop is best served as a ROOGY; he struggles to command the strike zone against lefties. He also fills the vacancy left by Dirk Hayhurst as the writer in the organization: the magna cum laude graduate from Bowling Green State University has dabbled in both movie scripts and financial planning books with friends.
2011 Marlins fans worried that their club's only concern is cash can rest assured that they did not just achieve cost savings from dumping Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis—they also got Burke Badenhop. As the last functioning part of the package received still in teal, there's thin solace to be taken in Badenhop's utility as a sinker-balling middle-relief asset. And before you ask, no, you generally don't have to trade a couple of All-Stars to have one.
2010 It was a relatively healthy season for the sinker-balling Badenhop, who missed a good chunk of 2008 with shoulder tendinitis. It was also a relatively successful one, as he pitched well in mostly trash-time relief. The conversion to the pen allowed Badenhop to up his strikeout rate past anything he had been able to sustain as a starter in the high minors. That increase, combined with his ground-ball tendencies and solid control, combine to make him the (so far) most accomplished player the Marlins received in the Miguel Cabrera/Dontrelle Willis deal. Not bad for a throw-in.
2009 An add-on from the Dontrelle Willis deal, Badenhop might be big but he clocks in under 90 mph with his sinking fastball, but that's his most frequently used selection in a three-pitch arsenal (he also throws a change and a slider). His 2008 was forgettable, as he split time between the rotation and relief before going down for the rest of the season with right shoulder tendonitis in June. Never more than a middling prospect, even healthy he would have been in danger of being crowded out of the near-term picture by the homegrown talent.
2008 Sent to the Marlins in the big Cabrera/Willis deal, Burke Badenhop is a highly-polished product with outstanding command of a sinker/slider combination that should be good enough for a back-of-the-rotation job when all is said and done.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Favorite low key acquisition this winter?
(Pamey Wright from L.A.)
I'm not sure if they qualify—you could probably call both mid-key acqusitions—but I loved the Norichika Aoki deal for Kansas City, and I think David Freese will help the Angels more than people think. If we're talking low-low key then Burke Badenhop is a good get for Boston. He's dependable and didn't cost much. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-12-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)What will Brandon Workman do now that the Red Sox have signed Edward Mujica and traded for Burke Badenhop?
(Paul from Boston)
That's tough because No. 6 starter seems like a good plan for him, but if Dempster is 5 and Doubront is 6...

They have so much starting pitching that I could see a trade at some point. There are guys who would have more value to other teams than they have to the Red Sox. (Zachary Levine)
2013-01-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Eight months from now, what minor transaction that didn't get much fanfare when it happened, will pay the most dividends for his team ?
(William from Pensacola, FL)
Tough one. I liked the Brewers adding Burke Badenhop, if that's a minor enough deal for you. He should help shore up the middle innings there. I know that's not going to yield too sexy of results but that's the first move that popped up. (R.J. Anderson)
2010-11-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Loving the Padres trade for Maybin. He's strikes me as a Mike Cameron type player, I'll take one of those for 2 middle relievers anytime.
(formersd from San Diego)
Admit it--you're Marc Normandin. But yes, I agree. Amazing to see how far the stock of the two centerpieces of the Miguel Cabrera trade have fallen. But hey, there's always Burke Badenhop, right? (Ben Lindbergh)
