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 It is as convenient as it is inaccurate to blindly attribute an extreme BABIP to the ghost of “luck,” and groundbreaking research by BP alum Mike Fast revealed that pitchers can have a measurable influence over balls in play. That said, Blevins has not demonstrated any particular affinity for suppressing BABIP in the past. All signs point to a fluke, and the odds of his repeating the outlier .230 BABIP of 2012 are exceedingly slim, but Blevins does have some inherent advantages in the battle against regression, including playing his home games in a pitcher-friendly ballpark and an Oakland defense that was one of the best in baseball.
2012 Despite not owning sexy radar gun readings on the fastball, the 6-foot-6 long-levered reliever delivers the ball so close to the plate that a fringy upper-80s heater appears to be much faster. With many pitches to choose from, featuring a slow curve, a cutter, and a fading changeup, Blevins is astute at sequence and situation, changing speeds, attacking hitters, and using all quadrants of the plate to force weak contact and miss bats. The 28-year-old lefty isn’t arbitration eligible for another season, so he remains a cost-effective relief option in the middle innings. But he lacks the type of stuff to pitch in a late-inning capacity and will be replaceable when his sticker price increases during his arbitration years.
2011 Blevins' numbers look just average as opposed to good, since Bob Geren handed him him way too many assignments against right-handers, who crushed him to the tune of .311/.392/.500. The southpaw sports an average-velocity fastball and a solid breaking ball, but his real advantage comes in the form of lankiness and arm angles that give left-handers fits. As a LOOGY, he's aces, but his skills limit him to specialized duty, a fact of life that the A's would do well to recognize.
2010 As a 6-foot-6 lefty with above-average velocity, it's surprising that Blevins hasn't established himself in the big leagues. The problem is that beyond his heater, the rest of his arsenal falls short. He tried to convert his slurvy breaking ball into a true slider in 2009, but that was met with mixed results, as more often than not the pitch would still flatten out. Unless something suddenly works out for him, he's likely headed back to Triple-A, but his size, left-handedness, and radar-gun readings will provide for plenty of opportunities.
2009 A breakout performer in 2007, the Cubs figured they were selling high when the sent Blevins to Oakland to acquire Jason Kendall for the stretch run, but in the end they gave up a nice bullpen arm. After proving his massive step forward was for real at Triple-A, Blevins's combination of a 92-95 mph fastball and slow looping curve was more than enough for big-league success, as he fills the strike zone with both pitches. He's not a closer, but he's a quality seventh-inning type who should be a cheap, successful arm for Oakland well into the next decade.
2008 We'll, at least Oakland got something for putting up with three years of Jason Kendall. Blevins began the minor league portion of his year as a generic arm in the Cubs' system and ended it by striking out 20 men in nine shutout innings in the Pacific Coast League playoffs to emerge as the best lefty reliever in the Oakland system, after which he made his major league debut. The 6-foot-6 Blevins has a heavy fastball in the low- to mid-90s which he supplements with a changeup. He's not going to close in the majors, but he could be a key part of the Oakland bullpen as early as this year.
