BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Simpson could be the poster boy for why teams shun small pitchers, especially righties, on draft day. He wasn't exactly Juan Marichal, but he used his exaggerated leg kick to get clocked as fast as 98 mph for 2010 draft evaluators. At number 16, he was considered an overdraft by most, but none saw the precipitous drop in his velocity coming, as Simpson was having trouble sitting above 90 mph in 2011. As harsh as it sounds for the player in question, the best possible outcome for the Cubs now is that an injury will be revealed, and Simpson will have surgery and begin the long process of rehab. Otherwise he's just an undersized pitching prospect without good velocity, great control, or standout secondary pitches.
2011 Hard-throwing 2010 first-rounder Hayden Simpson was seen as a reach pick, but after he contracted mono, seeing him in action had to wait 'til 2011.
