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 When Garza went to the disabled list, the Cubs turned to Raley to take his spot in the rotation. Raley did a tremendous amount of damage before being shut down upon hitting his innings limit, giving up seven home runs in only 24 1/3 innings. The Cubs have to hope his poor performance is related to the rapid promotion, and that a more patient approach might allow him to better adjust to the majors. He has a mix of four pitches, with his changeup the featured offering in his repertoire.
2011 Brooks Raley might be more of an organizational arm, but the big lefty had a strong second half in his full-season debut, and he can touch 94 with his fastball.
