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 The Braves’ first-round pick in 2011, Gilmartin reached Triple-A in his first full professional season. There’s reason to believe he could reach Atlanta in his second. Gilmartin throws strikes and attacks batters with a three-pitch mix. His changeup is the best offering of the bunch, and grades out as an above-average offering. The fastball is nothing special from a velocity standpoint—often sitting in the high-80s—but Gilmartin can put it where he wants and cut it when he wants. His outlook varies from mid- to back-end starter, depending on how sold you are on his ability to overcome his so-so stuff.
2012 Create a Venn diagram for Gilmartin and Mike Minor and there are plenty of things to put in the middle circle. Both were collegiate southpaws drafted in the first round by the Braves and considered safe picks. Gilmartin gets praise for his pinpoint fastball command, plus-changeup, clean arm action, and pitchability. His upside is limited—even with an improving slider—and that’s okay. The Braves drafted him with a high floor in mind. Expect Gilmartin to fly through the system, and do not be surprised if he is the first or second pitcher from the 2011 class to reach the majors.
