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 Relief-pitching prospects coming off their age-24 seasons in Double-A are a poor demographic to mine for future stars, but Rodriguez warrants consideration. He only tossed 44 1/3 innings of full-season ball before 2011, between spending a long time in rookie leagues and various health concerns. Two full seasons haven't miraculously cured his control issues nor turned his secondary pitches into plus offerings, but he still throws ridiculously hard for a lefty, and allowing a hit every other inning last year in Double-A gives an indication of just how unhittable he could be if he makes progress on any front.
2010 As a 6-foot-6 teenage lefty who can get his fastball up to 97 mph, Santos Rodriguez has tremendous potential, but for now he's much more of a thrower than a pitcher.
2009 The last piece sent to Chicago in the Vazquez deal, Santos Rodriguez is a tall, lanky 21-year-old Dominican lefty who can reach 93 mph on the gun and dominated out of the pen in a brief repeat of Rookie ball last year.
