BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Bajenaru is not only a SABR member, but appears to be a member of the Society for Quadruple-A Pitchers, as well. Faced with another year of the Tucson nightlife, he elected to become free agent.
2006 Bajenaru`s minor league ERAs have been impressive, but there are reasons for skepticism. His out pitch is the knuckle-curve, a creature that tends to fool minor league hitters that see him only once a game, resulting in a lot of strikeouts and fly balls to the warning track, but which major league hitters would be inclined to lay off in anticipation of his merely average fastball. Give him credit for chutzpah: the website jeffbajenaru.com lists him as `JEFF BAJENARU?CLOSER.`
2005 After missing '02 with Tommy John surgery, Bajenaru showed no loss of velocity. He gets his sinker consistently into the low 90s, and he's developing a good splitter. Not that there's really such a thing as a relief 'prospect,' but Bajenaru looks like he's going to be a good reliever shortly, good enough to push past the likes of Politte or Adkins.
