BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Like young red wines, finesse right-handers can be a matter of acquired taste or cost-conscious necessity. Unfortunately, not all of them open up and become something special with age, but you can always admire the effort. For a guy utterly without an effective breaking pitch and velocity that tops out around 90, Atilano did well after he was called up to replace Marquis, battling his way through games on nothing more than location and changing speeds. He can get through big-league lineups once and then starts running into trouble, because his bag of tricks is empty. He does the little things like fielding and holding runners well, but then again, he has to. Shut down two months early to have bone chips removed from his elbow, he should be ready to contend for the fifth slot in camp, but he'll need to add a breaking pitch he can throw for strikes, since he's as good as he can get on moxie alone.
2010 A former Braves first-round pick, Luis Atilano throws a ton of strikes, but his mediocre stuff leads to few strikeouts and a ton of hits allowed.
2009 Former Braves prospect Luis Atilano is still trying to recover from TJ surgery in 2006; the Nationals have him on a very short pitch-count leash.
