BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Clobbered by lefties in his half-season audition as a LOOGY in 2009, hard-throwing 6-foot-5 Brent Leach struggled with his control both before and after moving down from Triple-A to Double-A to return to starting.
2010 Injuries to Kuo and Will Ohman opened the door for Brent Leach to demonstrate that he could fulfill a LOOGY role with the Dodgers, but lefties clobbered him at a .256/.360/.488 clip.
2009 A big lefty with slightly better-than-average velocity for the type, Brent Leach has had to slowly work his way past Tommy John surgery, a corrected problem with overly sweaty palms (no, really), and bad mechanics, but he's potentially a situational asset in the making.
