BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2003 Whether by design or accident, the Cardinals cut loose both of the pitchers who came over with Darryl Kile from the Rockies. Hackman was dealt to the Cardinals for Brett Tomko, while Dave Veres was allowed to leave and become a Cub. Hackman can get into the 90s, but he doesnít have good command, and has always managed to struggle in every opportunity heís been given. Although some scouts like him, heís probably just going to be no more than staff filler again.
2002 Hackman will fight to have a career as a two-pitch guy out of the bullpen, battling for the 11th or 12th spot on the staff for the next couple of years. The bone-spur problem he had in 2000 appears to be a thing of the past. His velocity increased slightly towards the end of the season, an encouraging sign.
2001 Luther Hackman made three disastrous starts for the Rockies before being rescued by the Cardinals. His future is pretty iffy; he'll have to step it up a notch to have a shot at a career. He doesn't throw hard enough to rely on his stuff, and big-league hitters eat guys like this. If he were left-handed, it would be a different story.
2000 He turned the corner in 1999. Hackmanís game has improved by leaps and bounds, and he got his first cup of coffee as a what-the-heck call-up in September. He jumped two levels this year due to an improved mix of pitches and better control over his fastball. Traded to St. Louis in the Darryl Kile deal, heíll have trouble making the Cardinals and should spend the year at Memphis.
