BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 Due to publishing agreements, the 2017 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2017 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2016 A Rule 5 pick from the Astros, David Rollins followed a fine spring by being sentenced to 80 days of writing "Stanozolol" on lined paper. The M's stuck with him and he'll fight for a role in this year's 'pen.
2014 Trivia time! David Rollins was one of three minor-leaguers to make starts in High-A, Double-A and Triple-A without having played at those levels prior to 2013. The other two were fellow Astros Brady Rodgers and Kyle Hallock.
2013 David Rollins isn't a high-upside prospect, but if he can keep refining his pitches and keep them down in the zone while continuing the strike-throwing, he could develop into a rotation asset someday.
