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 Acquired from Philadelphia as part of the Michael Young deal, Bonilla is a talented righty with a fastball that reaches 95 mph. He’ll also mix in a quality changeup and a work-in-progress slider. Following a full-time transition to the bullpen with the Phillies in 2012, the Dominican is expected to remain in that role with Texas. A thumb injury, which required surgery, sidelined Bonilla for the second half of last season, but he returned for the Phillies’ instructional league and pitched in winter ball. The 23-year-old is still on the raw side but has seventh- or eighth-inning relief potential. He should open 2013 in the upper minors with a chance at Arlington if he improves his command and breaking ball.
