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 Andrew Carignan underwent Tommy John surgery in June, and a successful rehab could have him back on the mound at some point in the second half of the season.
2012 Promising two-pitch reliever Andrew Carignan has the stuff to miss bats (11.7 K/9 in 150 career minor-league innings) and force weak contact, relying heavily on the lively plus fastball he commands.
2009 A thickly built short righty with mid-90s heat, Andrew Carignan combines set-up man's stuff with massive control issues.
