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 Adam Plutko pitched in the same rotation as Gerrit Cole and Trevor Bauer in college, and he's still not conceding rank: He absolutely dominated High-A, then pitched well in Double-A. But the BABIP, and he doesn't carry top-end stuff, and... yeah, we'd still rather have Cole.
2015 Adam Plutko threw in the mid-90s in high school but the velocity has been sliding backward ever since, so now he's a 90 mph strike-thrower, which is unlikely to work at higher levels.
