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 Contreras moved to the bullpen full time in 2011 and impressed in his full-season debut last year at two levels. He was particularly tough against right-handers, who hit .125 against him at Dayton and struck out three times as often as they got hits. It isn't wise to expect much out of A-ball relievers who stand 6-foot-nothing, but the Reds liked Contreras enough to add him to the 40-man in November.
