BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 When the Indians acquired Talbot from the Rays before the 2010 season, GM Chris Antonetti said, "He’s a guy we’ve had interest in for quite a while," and it was easy to see why. Talbot has the arsenal to be a groundballing fourth or fifth starter with his good sinker, plus change, above-average cutter, and a breaking ball that's between a hard curve and a slurvy slider. But while he pitched well in Columbus, he had lukewarm success in Cleveland at best and will look for a new club in 2012. He made just 11 messy starts before getting demoted until September, with his calling card ground-ball rate falling well below league average. Talbot still has the potential to be a solid contributor if, and only if, he can pitch down in the zone, the style he is suited for. He doesn't possess swing-and-miss stuff aside from his change-up, and his command is unremarkable, so he'll need to become an ant-killer if he's to stick in the bigs.
2011 Acquired from the Rays for Kelly Shoppach, Talbot is, in many ways, the ultimate generic right-hander. He has a 90-92 mph fastball that he can sink or cut, average secondary pitches in a slider and changeup, and average command and control. The problem is that when he needs that one pitch to retire a hitter, it's just not in him. With these types of pitchers, you hope for a quality start that can keep you in the game, but Talbot delivered that just 11 times in 28 attempts last year. He's likely the fourth starter to open the season, but only because the Indians don't necessarily have a better option at this time.
2010 Acquired from the Astros in the Aubrey Huff trade along with Ben Zobrist, Talbot—no relation to the Ball Four foil, alas—lost the strike zone during his 2008 cup of coffee with the Rays. That wasn't all he lost, as an elbow sprain cost him more than half of the 2009 season. After showcasing his health with six starts in the Arizona Fall League, he was dealt to Cleveland as the PTBNL in the Kelly Shoppach trade; he's out of options and presumably will battle for a rotation spot with the Tribe. The owner of a 90-ish fastball with good movement, a hard slider, and a changeup with a nice fade, his is a usable arsenal, but one thoroughly lost among the high-upside arms in the Rays system.
2009 In 161 Triple-A innings last year, Mitch Talbot walked 35. During a late-season call-up to The Show, he walked 11 in 9 2/3. That, our friends, is called nerves. We're sounding like a broken record here, but it's hard to stand out as a young pitcher in this system, and the recoil from Talbot's first shot sent him back to the end of the line. He is, believe it or not, a strike-thrower with an average fastball, a decent slider, and a sweet changeup, but he's just in the wrong organization. When it comes to young pitchers in Tampa Bay, average, decent, and nice get thrown overboard.
2008 Talbot is something of a lost soul in the Rays system because of all the high-upside arms around him, but he's a solid prospect in his own right. He lives primarily off his fastball/changeup combination; both are solid pitches that he commands well, but his lack of a plus breaking ball was his downfall at Triple-A last year. His future is in relief anyway, so the need for a third pitch won't be as much of an issue going forward.
2007 Talbot took a huge step forward this year, mostly in the strikeout department, but it`s always hard to separate the guys who have figured things out from the guys who get lucky for a year. Still, Talbot has become less of an extreme ground-baller as his strikeout rate has improved, suggesting a conscious change in approach away from his previous pitch-to-contact style, yet he`s still managed to keep his home-run rate very low. Talbot has very clean mechanics and finally added a breaking pitch, though it`s really more of a slurve, which is often perceived as a poor man`s curve ball. Still, if last year represents a new level of ability, it means the Rays received a bigger bounty for Aubrey Huff than we thought.
