BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Hard-throwing Jorge De Leon should earn a trophy for going a whole season in the PCL without allowing a home run. He then should lose the trophy for allowing two homers in his September call-up. What a cruel, hypothetical award system.
2014 De Leon, an infielder until 2010, lost his 40-man spot after an abysmal 2012 in High-A, but the Astros’ desperate need for pitching and De Leon’s relative success as a closer in the high minors led to a late-season call-up. The fastball is live—he sits 95 and can touch 97—and the slider can neutralize righties, but he’s helpless against left-handed hitters. De Leon's control took a big step forward, but the improvement wasn't sufficient to warrant a spot on the 40-man roster, so he was outrighted again in October.
2013 Jorge De Leon may still be working out the kinks after switching from shortstop, and pitching for the JetHawks is thankless at best, but he was taken off the 40-man roster after posting an ERA that could be the model number on a Boeing product.
2012 Jorge De Leon flailed away as a shortstop for four years, hitting .213/.283/.323 in the low minors, so a near-100 mph fastball made a shift to the mound a no-brainer.
2011 Strong-armed Jorge De Leon was converted from a shortstop into a reliever in spring training last year and was impressive enough to be protected on the 40-man roster in November.
