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 Shawn Armstrong throws a high-90s fastball with a plus slider, and could get a shot in Cleveland this year due to the stuff, but he'll struggle unless he can refine his control.
