BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 The Phillies' signing of Araujo in November 2014 caused some humorous, momentary confusion, as he was given a major-league deal despite zero days of service time upon his release by Cleveland. All it really meant, of course, was that Araujo had a reserved spot on the 40-man, safe from Rule 5 plucking. As it turns out, the move was shrewd and prudent: Not only was Araujo protected, he pitched some efficient outings as the lone reliable left-hander once Mario Hollands was ruled out for the year and Antonio Bastardo was shipped away. Araujo's massive stature lends itself to reaction-time reduction for hitters, and that played out in the form of above-average whiff rates on both his fastball and breaking ball. A late-season velocity drop can be explained by fatigue, and Araujo was shelved for the season in late August with a groin strain out of what was called an “overabundance” of caution anyway, so he's expected to be plenty ready for the opportunity in 2016 to build on a successful start to his MLB career.
