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 Charles Brewer suffered the fate of so many strike-throwers who have attempted to conquer Reno, sitting center stage in the Aces Stadium pinball machine while relentless rounds of multi-ball put him on tilt.
2012 The right-handed starter's stat line survived the dreaded Double-A jump intact, but his body didnít, as his season was interrupted first by a concussion and then by a line drive that broke his hand in June. Brewer made up some of those lost innings and worked on a cutter in the Arizona Fall League, and he could contend for a rotation spot at some point next season, but all the work ethic in the world might not help him overtake the better pitching prospects ahead of him on the organizational depth chart.
