BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Injuries have reduced Kyle Cofield to an organizational arm. The once-promising sinkerballer will attempt to latch on in the Pirates bullpen.
2011 Acquired from the Braves in the Scott Linebrink deal, right-hander Kyle Cofield has a plus sinker and good breaking ball, but he also has a history of elbow problems and control issues.
2010 Standing six-foot-five while slinging a solid fastball/curve combination, Kyle Cofield isn't going anywhere until he starts striking out more batters than he walks, as opposed to the reverse.
