BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Signed to a minor-league pact by the Royals last November, Atahualpa Severino is a diminutive southpaw with solid stuff but fringy control.
2012 A lefty with a decent fastball and a record of moderate success, Severino throws harder than most guys he'll be competing against for jobs in the coming years, so he'll get lots of looks. He may still be three years from starting a lengthy major-league career.
2011 A diminutive Dominican named for the last ruling Sapa Inca (or "unique Inca") before the conquistadores showed up, Severino is a lefty less ordinary thanks to a fastball that touches 94. Unfortunately, that may be the extent of his effective offerings; his off-speed stuff isn't crisp enough for him to be a can't-miss addition to a bullpen, and between wearing down in the second half and then getting lit up in winter ball, he'll be coming to camp with a couple of questions to answer before he can really start gunning for Doug Slaten's job.
2010 Atahualpa Severino throws hard from the left side, and despite being a tad old for his minor-league levels, there's an Inca-ling he'll be a decent specialist.
