BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Strickland can get recklessly aggressive with his fastball, leading to the Aurelio Lopez–style Senor Smoke moments of two varieties, either inspired mitt-popping strikeouts or jacktastic smites that crash into the bleachers harder than Skylab. His success and struggles are intimately related to his platoon split, since he doesn’t have something off-speed to freeze lefties with.
2002 When Montreal dealt free-agent-to-be Ugueth Urbina at the trading deadline, Strickland inherited what few save situations the team saw the rest of the way. He gave ownership exactly what it wanted—comparable performance at a rock-bottom price. That could change this year if opponents look at the numbers, as Strickland still sports a huge platoon split, and teams are apt to pinch-hit in their final at-bat.
2001 One of the season’s weirdest footnotes was Scott Strickland’s torn/not-torn labrum. He was put on the 60-day DL with what was supposed to be a season-ending injury that would require major surgery. Two months and a second opinion later, Strickland was pitching again, and it now appears he won’t need surgery. The Expos don’t have a track record like the Red Sox or Indians when it comes to screwing up medical evaluations, so maybe this is a one-time thing. Strickland dominates right-handed hitters with his fastball/slider combo, but until he starts fooling lefties, Alou will have to pick Strickland's spots carefully.
2000 He came out of nowhere, one of the Expos’ rare short right-handers, and is looking like a solid reliever. Strickland is already being called a flamethrower because he combined for 126 strikeouts in 100 1/3 innings at four levels last year, but it isn’t that he throws especially hard. His fastball tops out at 94 mph, and is usually around 90 with good movement and he mixes in a tight slider. He’s been vulnerable to left-handed hitters at every level, so he’ll have to be used carefully, but he’s a better guy to have around than Mike Maddux.
