2003 File was penciled in to replace Paul Quantrill as the setup guy before straining an oblique muscle in late March. He finally returned two months later, but the hard, sinking stuff that made him effective out of the Blue Jaysí bullpen in 2001 didnít show up all year, causing him to remain in Syracuse. When the SkyChiefsí season ended, File was told to just shut it down for the winter, but something is wrong. File has the ingredients to be a sturdy reliever, but that day may not come until after a surgical visit and a long rehab.
2002 We're going to go out on a limb and flatly state that File is the best big leaguer ever to emerge from the Philadelphia College of Textiles. He was a power-hitting third baseman in college. The Jays were smitten with his arm and drafted him in the 19th round in 1998. Last year, File was worked longer and harder than he'd ever been before, and it showed, his ERA soaring from 1.74 before the break to 5.18 afterwards. He has yet to master a second pitch to complement his power sinker. File may grab some save opportunities now that Billy Koch has been sent to Oakland.
2001 He's Matt DeWitt with better stuff and a quality performance history. The Jays' bullpen was terrible in 2000, and making it better in 2001 will have more to do with giving hard throwers like Bob File a chance than with signing 38-year-old lefty specialists. His 3.35 ERA in the Arizona Fall League hid an RA of 6.75, so don't get too excited.
