BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Fireballer Angel Baez can generate significant swing-and-miss with his moving mid-90s fastball, slider and change, but lack of command results in sky-high walk and home run rates; like countless relievers before him, he'll have a bullpen career if he can graduate from thrower to pitcher.

I didn't this spring, but he's yet another promising arm in the Royals system. I can't stress this enough: the Royals have a ton of talent in the lower minors. (Jason Parks)
