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 Michael Pineda missed the season, Jesus Montero scuffled at the plate, and Jose Campos was shut down by elbow soreness, but Noesi might have had the worst year of anyone involved in last winter’s trade between Seattle and New York. He had the fourth-worst home-run rate in the majors (minimum 100 innings) despite pitching his home games at Petco Northwest. He lost his last nine decisions and his spot in the rotation. His stuff should play in the majors, particularly for a team that can support a fly-ball pitcher: He has a fastball that can reach the mid-90s, good stamina, and a solid changeup. What he lacks is a plan to put away hitters. After Noesi got ahead 0-2 in 2012, opponents still hit .319/.313/.702 against him, including five homers. Compare Noesi's OPS on an 0-2 count—1015—against the entire Seattle staff: 418. When batters are ahead, Noesi (974 OPS against) is no worse than the league average (977). An effective waste pitch might be the most important thing for him to develop next.
2012 It was something of a lost year for Noesi. The erstwhile starter was optioned four times beginning with spring training and largely worked in low-leverage relief when he was in the majors. Girardi took advantage of Noesi's recent time as a starter to give him seven relief appearances of three or more innings, though whenever the subject of his starting in place of Burnett was raised, the manager explained that the youngster wasn't sufficiently "stretched out," an ancient rule of pitcher-handling that the Yankees invented to justify keeping a failing vet in his place. Despite two bumpy late-season starts against the Rays, Noesi did nothing to show that he can't pitch in the big leagues. The Yankees' plans for him, however, remain amorphous.
2011 A Tommy John survivor, Noesi passed an important test in 2010 by not only pitching well, but not breaking down. He has an elegant delivery with a high lift to his knee which is reminiscent of Orlando Hernandez, and exemplary command, having walked just 62 in 353 pro innings (1.6 per nine innings). Note that the higher Noesi rose, the harder the going got. That owes something to the strength of his opponents, but stemmed in part from his not having spectacular secondary offerings: his fastball has movement and precision, but his curve and change are just decent. He’s unlikely to be an ace in the American League, and it should be interesting to see what advanced hitters in Triple-A or the majors do with a fastball-reliant pitcher who is always around the plate. Still, there’s a lot here to like, a fourth-starter-type with good stuff who doesn’t get himself in trouble by nibbling—which is to say, the anti-A.J.
2010 A new arrival on the 40-man, Noesi's progress through the Yankees' system has been slowed by injuries, including Tommy John surgery, and a 50-game suspension for a positive PED test. He appears to have been worth waiting for: Noesi has a low- to mid-90s fastball, an emerging curve, and exemplary command and control. He needs to show he can survive a grownup's workload; he's pitched a grand total of 192 2/3 innings in four seasons. A fly-ball pitcher, he'll thrive at Trenton if healthy.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Red Sox closer at the end of the year? White Sox, Rangers?
(John from CT)
Probably Uehara. He'll probably miss some time along the way, that was his rep last season and the team monitored his workload in attempt to mitigate against it, but he's 39 and coming off a season in which he threw the most innings he'd ever throw in a big league season. But unless you expect long-term injury, probably Uehara. If not him then Mujica or Tazawa probably takes over.

As for the White Sox, I'll stick with Lindstrom. He's alright and they don't have anyone better. The Rangers? I think you have to go with Hector Noesi. Noesi won't be denied! Noesi all the way! Noesi 2016! (Matthew Kory)
2011-09-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Could Hector Noesi be a #3 starter in the AL East?
(Robert from New York)
No. 4 or 5. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Yankees fans know what they're getting in Sergio Mitre (the equivalent of a swingman for a non-contending team). Other than experience, is he really a better option than trying out Ivan Nova or even Hector Noesi?
(Ethan from NYC)
What the Yankees need to do is lock in wins. Mitre, for all of his faults, has a narrower band of projected performance than almost any minor league pitcher would. From that standpoint, I think the decision makes sense. They can wait Pettitte's absence out. (Tommy Bennett)
