BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 The Rangers' rotation woes forced them to give big Phil Klein his fifth professional start in the majors. It didn't go so well, but his conversion in the minors held enough promise for him to possibly get another shot in 2016.
2015 Phil Klein is a 6-foot-7 righty who has cruised since being drafted in the 30th round in 2011; he joined the Texas bullpen in August and promptly slew every same-side hitter he saw with a slider-heavy approach.
