BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Robinson Yambati emerged as a quality prospect in 2010, but took an enormous step back with a miserable 2011. Promoted to the Appalachian League, he had difficulty repeating his delivery, lost velocity, and could no longer spot his fastball. In other words, everything went wrong.
2011 Ventura's fellow Dominican Robinson Yambati showed mid-90s heat and projection in Arizona last summer, earning himself a chance to make his performance hold up in a full-season league. These tropical twins are still far away from the majors, but could be far better known by the time our 2012 edition rolls around.
