BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2006 Keeping in mind that there`s almost never such a thing as a relief pitching prospect, getting into shape changed Bowyer from a guy with a good fastball to one who throws 99. That sort of velocity makes his slider and change that much more effective, and was attractive enough in trade to make him the headliner in the Castillo trade. He`ll get a shot at closing for the Marlins, and if he remains committed to his career, he could be good at it.
2005 Could the Twins be cloning relievers with great stuff, instead of just drafting or signing them, the way everyone else does it? In yet another credit to the organization's ability to find guys who can bring it, Bowyer can pump gas in the high 90s, and mixes in some unhittable breaking stuff now and again. He's towards the back of the line for now, but he's a dropped walk per nine away from making an impact.
