BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 A fascinating project, Morris is a skinny guy from the Virgin Islands with a live fastball and little else, including control. His delivery is a max-effort, just-chuck-the-ball-hard mess of arms and legs and head-snaps and who even knows what else. The last major-league pitcher from the Virgin Islands was Al McBean in 1970. Morris has the arm to be the next one, but he's a long, long way away.
