BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Robert Coello could be a useful middle relief piece, as his heavy low-90s fastball is effective when he doesn’t leave it over the middle of the plate.
2012 Preseason trade acquisition Robert Coello survived a designation for assignment in late May and went on to attract some attention by posting a 1.01 ERA in relief (with 47 K in 35 2/3 IP) at Iowa after failing as a starter.
2011 Coello is a one-pitch pitcher, and the only time that pitch cracks well over 90 mph is when it breaks the sound barrier heading back toward the stands. Despite the auditory explosion emanating from a well-struck Coello offering, a .251 BABIP kept his ERA out of unsightly territory for the PawSox and allowed him to preserve his warm-body standing and Boston-bullpen eligibility. Without a second pitch, the right-hander may not even earn "organizational soldier" status.
