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 Anderson, the Rockies' first-round pick in 2011 out of the University of Oregon, is a finesse pitcher who relies on command and who has little margin for error. He generated a lot of groundballs in his pro debut, which served him well at the pitchers' nightmare that is Asheville. Anderson's strikeout rate was well below league average, as it will be at every level. Lack of dominance limits his upside, but he is polished and figures to slot at the back of a rotation before long. When he does reach the big leagues, he will join Mike Morgan, Greg Maddux, and Matt DeWitt as the fourth pitcher from his high school to have done so.

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-06-05 14:00:00 (link to chat)Seriously, the Rockies since 2008 have drafted in the first round Rex Brothers, Christian Friedrich, Tyler Anderson and now Kyle Freeland. All Collee LHP, is this a theme of taking these low-ceiling players?
(Wesley from Utah)
I wouldn't call Freeland low-ceiling. Has legit plus stuff and fills up the zone with it. Good performance arm with the scouting card to back it up.

Have to step away for about 20 mins on a couple of calls. Be back... (Draft Day Chat with Nick J. Faleris)
