BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Jay Buente has put up moderately successful numbers in Triple-A but his limited major league experience has involved far too many free passes and not enough missed bats.
2011 Despite a fastball that touches 95 and a nice splitter, Jay Buente isn't anything more than an organizational arm, getting outrighted from the 40-man after being too cute in his brief opportunities.
2010 Groundballin' Jay Buente's a Hoosier added to the 40-man after doing good work in the AFL on top of last season; his Zephyrs-leading five intentional walks suggest he's already part of Fredi Gonzalez's friend-and-family cell package.
