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 Claimed by the Padres off waivers from Detroit in August, Thad Weber is a finesse righty whose greatest asset is the ability to log innings.
2010 Strike-throwing Cornhusker Thad Weber was snagged in 2008's 16th round, and did well before last year's arrival at Double-A; he's organizational material until he proves otherwise.
