BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Septimo is an exciting prospect, despite being somewhat advanced in age. He began as a toolsy outfielder in the Diamondbacks organization, then epitomized wildness after switching to the mound in 2008. Since claiming him on waivers, the Sox have been able to get him to throw more strikes at the expense of a little velocity (he hasn't hit triple digits recently, but still throws very hard for a lefty), and the resulting performance improvements last year all but insure he'll at least make the team. His upside beyond that is limited only by how much more progress he can make at improving his control.
2012 Lefties that can light up a gun like Leyson Septimo tend to get the glass-half-full treatment, thus the former Arizona farmhand will get yet another chance to prove he has any clue at all where his pitches are going.
2011 Leyson Septimo is a converted outfielder who walked 29.7 percent of the batters he faced last season. Given his career walk rate of 19 percent, something tells us this conversion isn't sticking.
2010 An outfielder converted to the mound, Leyson Septimo has no trouble missing bats, but he offers absolutely no control whatsoever.
