BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 A Rule 5 pick, Robert Fish is a lefty with a mid-90s fastball and power breaking ball. He missed the 2012 season with elbow trouble.
2011 The Yankees found lefty Robert Fish's 95-mph fastball alluring enough to select him in the Rule 5 Draft despite a near-9.00 ERA at Double-A in his first season as a full-time reliever.
2009 Robert Fish is a big-bodied lefty with good velocity and deceptive arm action who some in the organization see as a major sleeper.
