BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Jorge De Leon may still be working out the kinks after switching from shortstop, and pitching for the JetHawks is thankless at best, but he was taken off the 40-man roster after posting an ERA that could be the model number on a Boeing product.
2012 Jorge De Leon flailed away as a shortstop for four years, hitting .213/.283/.323 in the low minors, so a near-100 mph fastball made a shift to the mound a no-brainer.
2011 Strong-armed Jorge De Leon was converted from a shortstop into a reliever in spring training last year and was impressive enough to be protected on the 40-man roster in November.
