BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 A 19th-round 2008 pick out of Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, Bruce Pugh is an unheralded righty who can hit the mid-90s with his fastball and miss plenty of bats, but he has a hard time keeping the ball in the park.
2010 A little-known 19th-round pick in 2008, Bruce Pugh grabbed a lot of attention in 2009 with a 93-94 mph fastball.
