BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Joe Bisenius still has plus velocity and a hammer curve, but his command has gone backwards in each of the last two years.
2008 Joe Bisenius made the Phils' Opening Day roster last year, but only as a seat-warmer for an injured veteran. He's your standard low-90s fastball/slider reliever, or he was until his command took a giant step backwards at Triple-A Ottawa.
