BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Sues created some buzz in 2008 when he was named the Pirates' minor-league pitcher of the year after struggling for three previous seasons to recover from shoulder surgery. However, for an encore Sues delivered another disappointment in '09, as his strikeout rate dipped and his velocity was down after he had routinely touched 96-97 mph with his fastball in '08. The Pirates haven't given up on him, but he lost some of his luster last season and is at an age where he needs to take another forward. Failing that, Sues can always take legal action.
2009 Sues' pro debut was delayed for two years after he was drafted in the fifth round in 2005 because of shoulder surgery. However, he turned himself into a prospect last season when he was moved into the bullpen, routinely hitting 96 mph with his fastball and being named the organization's minor league pitcher of the year. Sues is not a kid and the Pirates will likely fast-track him to the major leagues by some point this season to get a closer look.
