BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Josh Geer received an opportunity, but his mid-80s fastballs and sinker/slider control combo is a tough act to pull off in the majors; removed from the 40-man.
2009 Josh Geer got to the big leagues with the kind of stuff that leaves many players undrafted. His sinker parks in the mid- to upper 80s and his slider is fringy, but he does have a plus changeup and excellent command. Call it smarts or pitchability or confidence or whatever you like, but Geer has that little extra something that allows him to succeed at a limited level. He'll likely begin the year in the Padres rotation, and while there's no star here to wish upon, he just might stick around for a while.
2008 Geer might not have the raw talent that many of the recent pitchers out of Rice do, but at least he's been able to stay healthy. He's a control pitcher with an upper-80s fastball, a solid curve, and a very good changeup whose success comes from his ability to locate all of his pitches at will. Coming off a season in which he led the Texas League in wins and ERA, he projects as an innings-eater at the very least.
