BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 David Kopp began the season on the disabled list in Double-A, lost his spot on the 40-man roster in June, then was moved to the bullpen, where he thrived, allowing just five runs in 18 innings. That earned the Clemson product a promotion to Memphis in August and a spot in the Arizona Fall League.
2011 Injuries have robbed David Kopp of development time. He doesn’t generate much swing-and-miss, but his ability to generate ground balls has earned him a spot on the 40-man roster.
