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 Jack Leathersich made his major-league debut before undergoing Tommy John surgery in late July. When healthy, he's a high-effort strikeout machine with a sharp curveball that could go anywhere.
2015 For the second straight year, Jack Leathersich looked strong at Double-A Binghamton and got lit up at Triple-A Las Vegas. He could crack The Show at any time; for now, look at those strikeout numbers!
