BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Righty Tyler Sample is a 6-foot-7 beast of a human with a very high ceiling, but he won't reach it if he keeps walking the ballpark.
2010 A 2008 third-rounder, Tyler Sample is a physically intimidating (6-foot-7, 245 pounds) specimen who has been brought along slowly because of his inexperience. He has as much upside as any pitcher in the system, but is far from achieving it.

(BobcatBaseball from Athens, OH)
Tyler Sample was touching 96 with a plus curveball at 84 the other night. It is a real shame he just cannot repeat his delivery and has bottom-of-the-scale command. (Zach Mortimer)
