BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Big right-hander Brett Jacobson throws hard, but as a 24-year-old who hasn't thrown a pitch above High-A, his relief for Fredericksburg last season seems less impressive. The 2008 fourth-rounder is now the property of the Twins, after changing hands in the J.J. Hardy trade.
