BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Graham Taylor had been making a desultory climb through the Marlins' system, when Andrew Miller's April trip to the DL produced an improbable promotion for the standard-issue slow-stuff, ground-balling lefty. Predictably mashed into slurry, he's no longer on the 40-man.
