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 A series of maneuvers last summer designed to add Jurickson Profar to the Rangers roster exposed De Los Santos to waivers, and the Brewers were happy to spend a few bucks to add the young lefty to their stockpile of potential bullpen saints. This De Los Santos lives off his Bugs Bunny changeup, a seriously wicked screwball offering thatís delivered with arm action indistinguishable from his fastball. Minor-league hitters have treated it like kryptonite, striking out nearly a third of the time, but De Los Santos's lack of fastball command has led to worrisome walk rates and a rash of gopher balls. His velocity has climbed into the low-90s since his move to the bullpen, and if he can learn to locate his fastball he could ride his wipeout change to the big leagues. Thatís a big if, of course, but one thatís well worth betting a few bucks on.
2012 Owner of the best changeup in the Rangers systemóa screwball-like twister pitch thrown brilliantly off the fastball offering up deception and movementóDe Los Santos is a subject of debate over his future. With a solid-average fastball and a fringy curveball that has flashed promise, the 23-year-old Dominican southpaw might have the necessary arsenal to find success in the rotation. But his command isnít sharp and that curveball flashes fringe more than it flashes first-class, making De Los Santos a more realistic option in the bullpen. At the very least, his fastball/changeup combo will make him a lefty specialist at the major league level, but his extreme bat-missing ability gives him a higher ceiling if only he can grasp command.
2011 After losing traction while coping with a visa issue in 2009, lefty Miguel De Los Santos re-emerged on the stateside scene, using his potent three-pitch mix to miss 112 bats in only 70 1/3 innings over two levels.
