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 Casilla was an integral part of the bullpen last year, and he ultimately led the team in saves. He leaned heavily on a pair of mid-to-upper-90s fastballs—a sinker and four-seamer—throwing them roughly 70 percent of the time. He complimented them with a pair of evenly used breaking balls: a curveball and a slider. The artist formerly known as Jairo Garcia finished the season with the best strikeout-to-walk ratio of his career, but not all was smooth sailing as he allowed the most home runs of his career as well. Casilla should once again be used in high-leverage situations out of the bullpen this year.
2012 Casilla's season began with right elbow inflammation and a fastball 3 mph slower than it had been in 2010. Fortunately for him, the velocity turned out to be less important to his success than the development of a low-80s curveball to complement his power slider. A second effective season finally convinced Bruce Bochy that Casilla was for real, and he got the save opportunities with Sergio Romo and Brian Wilson injured in the final month. Over the past two seasons, only two relievers in baseball have a better ERA than Casilla. He's done so with an unspectacular strikeout rate, too many walks and more wild pitches per inning than anybody in baseball, but all those outs—which cost the Giants less than $2 million—counted just the same.
2011 Released by the A’s in December 2009, Casilla caught on with the cross-bay Giants, found a couple extra ticks on his fastball, ditched his rarely used changeup for a very effective curve, and emerged with his best major-league season. The Giants’ third-best reliever by WXRL, and Bruce Bochy’s preferred righty in the sixth and seventh innings, Casilla’s success was the result of a strong strikeout rate and a little luck with balls in play and fly balls staying in the park. (Casilla, who is not a ground-ball pitcher, allowed just two homers all year and none in 25 appearances on the road.) Normally we’d caution against expecting a repeat of a career year like that from a short reliever, but given the change in repertoire, it seems possible that Casilla could hold on to some of his gains.
2010 Casilla can bring it in around 94-98 mph with his fastball, but that also represents the sum of his abilities. Now pushing 30, the pitcher formerly known as Jairo Garcia has yet to throw strikes consistently, and that, along with an always inconsistent breaking pitch, leaves him far more hittable than a guy with his velocity should be. The A's expressed their confidence in Casilla's liklihood of figuring things out by removing him from the 40-man roster to make room for Rule 5 pick Bobby Cassevah.
2009 When he was Jairo Garcia, he was one of the more exciting young relief prospects in the game, but becoming Santiago Casilla made him three years older, so he turned into a guy who's rawness was a matter of concern for a guy in his late 20s. His stuff is pure power, with a 96-98 mph fastball and an upper-80s slider, but the heater is straight, the slider flattens out, and he has trouble throwing strikes. It's big-league stuff, but it's not dependable enough for a late-innings role.
2008 Three years ago, Casilla was "Jairo Garcia" and one of the better young relief pitchers in the minors. Then his birth certificate turned up, and he became a prospect who was old for his level and had some command issues. Casilla's still a pure power bullpen arm with a mid-90s fastball and wipeout slider who could pick up some saves if Huston Street is unavailable, but he needs to provide the organization with a little more confidence that he'll throw strikes if called upon.
2007 This is the same guy who used to be named Jairo Garcia and born in 1983. You see the new name and the new birthday, and you can guess what happened. He was doing well in Sacramento until June 14, when he went down with a sore shoulder. The doctors never did find anything worth operating on, so Casilla spent the autumn rehabbing and was expected to pitch winter ball in his native Dominican Republic. Whatever else happens, he`ll always have that 2004 stat line from Kane County. That was almost certainly his professional peak, it just happened at the wrong time and place. Think about how frightening it must be to know that. Say you`re 20 years old, or 30, and you somehow find out that you will never achieve more or be happier than when you were 15. What would you do then?
2005 A righty with a true over-the-top delivery isn't something we see so much of these days, but it's that motion which makes it that much harder to pick up Garcia's moving mid-90s fastball. If there's a problem, it's that the heater is his only consistent offering; the breaking stuff is all in the developmental stage. Rushing him through the system was a bit of wishcasting run amok. As much as he was overpowering people, a pitcher who struggles to walk less than a man per inning above A-ball isn't ready for the big leagues. If the A's are smart they'll give him a repeat engagement in Triple-A, and the time in which to earn a longer visit to the majors this year.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Enjoying the chat, thanks. Q. National Leaguer with one or fewer saves who is mostly likely to have seven by the end of the year?
(gerrybraun from san diego)
Vic Black, Santiago Casilla, Alex Torres, Brad Ziegler. And I like Addison Reed but I can see them pulling the plug for a bit. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-05-07 17:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some under the radar guys who are available in most leagues that you could see taking over a closer role at some point this season?
(Chris from NY)
Chris Perez on the Dodgers (he has moved past Brian Wilson in my opinion). Santiago Casilla on the Giants if Romo's arm falls off. I still like someone besides Tommy Hunter eventually getting saves in Baltimore. (Mike Gianella)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who's more likely to grab up saves this season: Josh Fields or Santiago Casilla?
(Mark from Springfield)
Probably Fields. Think of it this way: Romo is only losing that job if he gets hurt. Qualls (assuming he wins the job) could lose it to injury or because he gets dealt. Even so, I might go with Casilla. Fields' command is rough and that's not a forgiving ballpark; he might beat Casilla in saves and get dwarfed in ERA and WHIP. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Have a favorite pick you've made in the reliever draft thus far? Didn't make it into your league so can't see your roster.
(Alex from Milwaukee)
My league is in the middle of the 13th round. My 12 picks so far:

Craig Kimbrel
Grant Balfour
Junichi Tazawa
Kevin Siegrist
Craig Stammen
Will Smith
Carlos Martinez
Adam Ottavino
Wade Davis
Manny Parra
Heath Hembree
Santiago Casilla

(For anyone who doesn't know what we're talking about, Sam is running a reliever-only fantasy league with Effectively Wild listeners. Only categories are runs allowed and strikeouts, and only relief innings count.) (Ben Lindbergh)
