BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 While Buschmann was among the Texas League leaders in ERA and strikeouts, scouts don't hold out much hope for him, and at times seem frankly baffled as to how he's found so much success with his average sinker/slider combination. It's certainly not his merely average command, but some aspect of a deceptive delivery that makes his release hand hard to pick up. Triple-A Portland is a tough place to pitch, and many think he'll meet his match there.
2008 Right-hander Matt Buschmann proved able to handle the Cal League in 2007 with his average-fastball/plus-slider combo. He turns 24 before the 2008 season begins and doesn't offer much projection.[/]
