BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Levale Speigner stayed in the minors most of the year after being in Rule 5 limbo in 2007; an excellent reliever while in the minors, he may have been speignt by the time he was called up in September.
2008 The other Rule 5 pick on last year's team, Levale Speigner stuck around just long enough to prove carrying him was an undue burden; the Nats worked out a deal to keep and then demote him
