BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 De Los Santos came to the Brewers in the George Kottaras trade last summer, giving him the opportunity to frustrate yet another organization. He’s a perpetual tease, drawing your eye with his alluring mid-90s fastball and darting slider, then driving you away with his continual lack of production. De Los Santos racks up the strikeouts and his walk rate isn’t terrible for a power reliever, but lack of command leaves him far more hittable than someone with his arsenal should be. Given Milwaukee’s bullpen mess he should get another long look this spring and could become the new Jose Veras.
2012 A flame-throwing righty with a plus-plus fastball and a tight slider with two-plane break, De Los Santos has the type of stuff to close games for the Athletics at some point in the near future. The ability to miss bats is there; in his debut season, De Los Santos’ struck out 43 major league hitters in only 33 innings of work. But his command isn’t sharp, and his mechanical profile doesn’t allow for plus command projection. If the 26-year-old pitcher can find more consistency with his strike-throwing, the stuff could be more than good enough to play in high-leverage relief situations.
2011 Once a top prospect with one of the better young arms in the game, Faustino De Los Santos missed plenty of bats in his return from arm surgery, but also got hit hard at Double-A.
2010 The best prospect (at the time) acquired for Nick Swisher, Fautino De Los Santos showed enough in his return from Tommy John surgery to earn a spot on the 40-man roster.
2008 De Los Santos went from being a little-known Dominican arm to the best prospect in the White Sox's system last year-153 strikeouts in 122 1/3 innings can do that to a guy. With a powerful build and lightning-quick arm, De Los Santos pounds the strike zone with a low- to mid-90s fastball that can touch 98, and his curve ball is a big power breaker that makes hitters look silly. No arm in the system has a ceiling like his, but he's still an unrefined product that will take another two years or so to be ready.

2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which minor league FA intrigues you the most?
(Omar from Atlanta )
There are quite a few guys that intrigue me, and if you go back to my personal scouting biases/preferences that I discussed earlier, it won't be a shock who those are, and most of them are power arms like Santo Manzanillo, Fautino De Los Santos (suspension and all), Jhan Marinez and Wilking Rodriguez. (Mark Anderson)
2013-08-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)There is speculation in the Detroit media that the Tigers won't take Peralta back, despite the obvious boost he gives them at shortstop, because of "image" concerns. I think that, if they don't play him and lose at any point, their image is tarnished forever. The Giants got to the WS because of a huge contribution from Melky. What do you think?
(Tigerdog from Orange county CA)
Well, they did trade for Iglalasis.

Tigerdog, hijacking your question to run this. It's official:


Major League Baseball issued the following discipline today for violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program in relation to the Biogenesis investigation. Players receiving 50-game suspensions without pay for their violations of the Program are:

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Antonio Bastardo;
San Diego Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera;
New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli;
Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz;
• Padres pitcher Fautino De Los Santos, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A San Antonio Missions of the Texas League;
Houston Astros pitcher Sergio Escalona, who is currently of the roster of the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks of the Texas League;
• Yankees outfielder Fernando Martinez, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the International League;
Seattle Mariners catcher Jesus Montero, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League;
• Free agent pitcher Jordan Norberto;
Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta;
New York Mets outfielder Cesar Puello, who is currently on the roster of the Double-A Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League; and
• Mets infielder/outfielder Jordany Valdespin, who is currently on the roster of the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s of the Pacific Coast League.

Norberto’s suspension will be effective immediately once he signs with another Major League organization. All other suspensions are effective immediately. None of the players will appeal their discipline.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon and Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal, all of whom already have served 50-game suspensions as a result of their violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program stemming from their connections to Biogenesis, will not receive additional discipline.
Major League Baseball’s investigation found no violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program by either Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez or Baltimore Orioles infielder Danny Valencia.

STATEMENT FROM THE TIGERS:
The Detroit Tigers today issued the following statement regarding the suspension of Jhonny Peralta:

"We recognize the suspension of Jhonny Peralta for violating Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program as a measure taken in the best interest of the game. The Detroit Tigers continue to fully support Major League Baseball's policy and its efforts to eliminate performance enhancing drugs from our game. Per the protocol outline by Major League Baseball's collective bargaining agreement, the Tigers' organization will provide no further comment on Peralta’s suspension."

STATEMENT FROM PERALTA:
“In spring of 2012, I made a terrible mistake that I deeply regret. I apologize to everyone that I have hurt as a result of my mistake, including my teammates, the Tigers’ organization, the great fans in Detroit, Major League Baseball, and my family. I take full responsibility for my actions, have no excuses for my lapse in judgment and I accept my suspension.
I love the fans, my teammates and this organization and my greatest punishment is knowing that I have let so many good people down. I promise to do everything possible to try and earn back the respect that I have lost.” (Maury Brown About Biogenesis and Business)

(Xavier from Texas)
As of right now, I’d give Grant Balfour the edge, but Fautino De Los Santos and Joey Devine will be in the mix as well. De Los Santos figures to be the long-term option there, especially if he can harness his control/command a bit more. (Derek Carty)
