BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 He’s a standby option if Sun-Woo Kim and Zach Day can’t fill the back end of the rotation. A soft-tosser who knows how to pitch, Gonzalez probably needs to rip off a big hot streak to impress and land something resembling a secure major league job. As bullpens head toward increased specialization, the job of effective long-relief man has gone the way of the dodo bird, replaced by mop-up artists and retreads. Gonzalez could make a good living in that role if the Expos wanted to revive it.
2002 In 2001, Gonzalez finally forced the organization to take him seriously. He’s the type of pitcher who is often ignored by scouts because he doesn’t throw that hard—his best fastballs peak at 90 mph—and he doesn’t have great stuff. What has carried Gonzalez through the system is his top-notch command. He’s definitely a major-league pitcher at this point, but he may end up in the bullpen because he often seems to need a lot of pitches to put batters away.
2001 Dickey Gonzalez just keeps performing despite scouting reports that would appear to paint him as a minor-league lifer. He just touches 90 with his fastball, and his off-speed stuff isn’t great, but his control is incredible. It allows him to work hitters inside and outside and rack up strikeouts. His 3.84 ERA in 2000 was his worst since 1997, though his indicators remained strong. He’ll have to prove himself anew at every level.
2000 A control specialist, his stock climbed greatly this year when his fastball improved from 85 mph to 90 mph without costing him any control. I’d like to have seen that translate into more strikeouts, but it’s a good sign even without them.
1999 Came out of nowhere to surprise the Mets, who had considered returning him to Kingsport this year. Has good stuff, but doesn’t have total command of all his pitches yet, leading to a lot of hits and a lot of groundballs. Warning: faced over 24 batters per start, covering 158 innings, both high for a 19-year-old, but his mechanics don't appear to put a great strain on his elbow.
