BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 The Diamondbacks did not take any chances with 2008 third-round pick Eichhorn, the son of former major-league pitcher Mark. Coming back from nerve transplantation, the organization limited Kevin's action to a mere 10 games in Rookie ball as a precaution against additional injury. Scout Darold Brown, who signed the third-round pick, referred to Eichhorn as having a smoke-and-mirrors skill set, suggesting that his average fastball velocity and good curveball will sneak up on hitters and result in a "comfortable ohfer." An excellent athlete in high school who played shortstop when not on the mound, his 14.1 K/9 in 16 innings of work has to be considered encouraging even if the control needs a bit of work.
2009 Arizona's third-round pick last June, righty Kevin Eichhorn is Mark's son, but he's not a sidearmer or a reliever; instead, Kevin has mid-rotation potential.
