BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Stolen from the Mets in a deal for Shawn Sedlacek, Cerda throws in the upper 80s with a deceptive delivery. Against left-handed hitters, he aims for the outside corner on the knees on seemingly every pitch, a formula for success for many successful lefty specialists.
2003 What youíre seeing is Cerdaís entire pro career, and yes, it adds up to a career minor 1eague ERA of 1.35. Heís already survived Tommy John surgery, and heís throwing a nasty sinker that comes in just over 90. To mix things up heíll include a decent slider and a good cutter. He hasnít had problems spanking right-handed hitters, so he doesnít need to be shoe-horned into the situational lefty role. Instead, he can be a plain old quality reliever, like Jesse Orosco was. You know, back when the rest of us were learning to use stone tools.
