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 The Padres signed Werner out of a tryout camp in 2010. He joined the big club in August, thanks to a lack of suitable alternatives within the organization, and made four good starts, followed by four terrible ones. Werner doesn't throw hard but keeps the ball around the plate and in the yard. Traded to the A's in November, he is the quintessential generic lefty.
