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 The most philosophical pitcher in the minors, Arquimedes Walker—if you’ll pardon the Spanglish—may not be much of a thinker, but his upper-90s heat could one day land him a big-league relief gig. Caminero solved High-A in 2012, and he held his own in a brief promotion to Double-A Jacksonville, recording nearly a strikeout per inning. The bad news: He turns 26 in June and still lacks control and a reliable off-speed pitch. Solving one of those issues would make him a serviceable middle reliever; fixing both could turn him into an electric setup man. But Arquimedes needs his “Eureka!” moment to come soon, because there are younger, more-polished arms chasing him up the ladder.
2012 Hard-throwing righty Arquimedes Caminero suffered an elbow strain in spring training that required Tommy John surgery over the summer, likely sidelining him until 2013.
2011 When a player shares a name with a great inventor and mathematician of ancient Greece, as does Arquimedes Caminero, one might expect a stathead fave, but scouts sign on for the high-90s heat that got him added to the roster.
