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 Hunter spent 2012 bouncing between the rotation and the bullpen, and a swing role seems about all he’s destined for. While he throws 93 mph, his secondary offerings are more about quantity than quality; he throws four other pitches (sinker, cutter, changeup, curve), but none induced whiffs on more than 21 percent of swings this year. To put their ineffectiveness in perspective, that’s lower than a lot of pitchers’ fastballs. This results in low strikeout rates and a reliance on pinpoint control, making Hunter a capable enough fifth starter, but he’ll max out there unless he can find a way to induce more swings-and-misses.
2012 Acquired in the Koji Uehara deal, Hunter profiles as a back-of-rotation innings eater. Physical differences aside (Hunter looks like he could eat Guthrie for breakfast), Hunter has the potential to become the new Jeremy Guthrie for the O's—a guy who can throw 92-mph but, lacking a true swing-and-miss pitch, struggles to be even average at generating strikeouts. Like Guthrie, his ability to survive will hinge upon good control and treating his fielders to lots of steak dinners. He has a career .281 BABIP, but in just over 300 innings, that number's legitimacy is far from assured. Aside from his fastball, the uncanny resemblance to Guthrie continues as Hunter boasts an almost identical repertoire: an 11-to-5 curve, a two-seamer, a change, and a cutter that behaves a bit like Guthrie's slider.
2011 Drafted in the supplemental first round in 2007, the former University of Alabama product made a successful transition from reliever to back-of-the-rotation starter last season, showing the ability to throw strikes and chew innings. Featuring an effective 12-to-6 curveball and a developing cut fastball that he uses to induce weak contact, Hunter mixes his pitches well and owns an unflappable presence on the mound. Without a plus fastball or true wipeout pitch, he struggles to miss bats, which limits his ceiling, but Hunter has value as a pre-arbitration innings horse who provides stability in the back of a rotation. He’s also a former judo champion, so just in case he's reading, we'd probably be wise to close by observing that on second thought, he’s a lean, fast-twitch athlete with four plus-plus pitches and a smile that could start a war.
2010 Even among the number of big men you'll find on the mound, Hunter stands out for being one who isn't remotely gangly; walking around on a pair of tree trunks that appear proportional for his mass, he just seems to be the textbook definition of big in pitcher form. He's not a power pitcher, instead relying on a pedestrian fastball and an increasing number of cutters, and mixing in breaking stuff as needed. Basically, he focuses on throwing strikes and relies on his defense. Big-league lefties weren't fooled much, as his strikeout rate and performance flagged down the stretch; he managed quality starts in six of his first nine MLB turns, then just two in his last 10. All of which goes towards why he isn't guaranteed a rotation job, although he may have the inside track on a spot.
2009 In his first full season, Hunter opened the year with an aggressive assignment to High-A, but he moved up on a nearly bi-monthly basis, and even saw a trio of big-league starts. He got hammered in the majors, but that doesn't lessen the accomplishment. While he's built more like a defensive lineman than a baseball player, he's hardly overpowering, relying on a low-90s sinker to either get ground balls or put him ahead in the count to set up one of his two breaking balls as a chase pitch. He projects as a durable back-end starter in the end, but he's got studs like Feliz and Holland already ahead of him, and a bounty of talented young arms coming up from behind.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)Does Baltimore have an issue with developing good starting pitching? Brian Matusz, Zach Britton, and Tommy Hunter are all now in the bullpen. Jake Arrieta is excelling in Chicago. Should Kevin Gausman be hoping for a trade?
(Shawn from Cubicle)
Kevin Gausman will be just fine. I don't think their player development is the greatest but that also has to do with the players' makeup and willing to make adjustments and work. (CJ Wittmann)
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)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Bret, I'm tempted to trade my best keeper (Carlos Santana at $9) for a package of Tommy Hunter ($1), George Springer ($5) and Carlos Correa ($2) in an AL Only dynasty league. Smart?
(Brett G. from KC)
Not if you want to win. (Bret Sayre)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)Let's assume that Dylan Bundy's recovery goes perfectly. What do the Orioles do with him this year? How many starts does he get?
(mattstupp from NYC)
Zero starts, and he ends up as a very strong reliever in the second half, possibly closing games unless Tommy Hunter can perfect a high-wire act against lefties. (Bret Sayre)
2014-03-19 20:00:00 (link to chat)hi there. i need to trade for a closer in my pool... These are the guys "available". How would you rank these guys in terms of risk (being bad or injury): Tommy Hunter, Uehara, Feliz, Janssen. thanks...
(Phillip from Squamish)
It's clearly Uehara if they're all similar prices. There's unnecessary risk in the other three. (Bret Sayre)
2014-01-21 18:00:00 (link to chat)Any AL set-up men you like to potentially get the closer job this year?
(Dave from Boston)
Whoever is setting up Tommy Hunter seems like a pretty good bet in Baltimore. Otherwise, Joe Smith is a good get in AL-only. Mike Scioscia showed wavering confidence with Ernesto Frieri last year and Smith could steal the job if Frieri falters. (Mike Gianella)
2013-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would close in Baltimore if Jim Johnson were to lose the job?
(bobbykester from dc)
My guess is Darren O'Day. Don't sleep on Tommy Hunter who now throws 97-99 as an RP. (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)I'm not a fan of either team, but who wins an Angels/Dodgers World Series?
(Alex from Anaheim)
Do the Angels have the pitching to get to the Series? Weaver, Wilson, Blanton, Jason Vargas and Tommy Hunter? I guess if they're in the Series they had enough pitching to get there though. So I'll take the Angels! (Matthew Kory)
2013-03-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tommy Hanson, not Tommy Hunter. Hanson = talented but broken. Hunter (BAL) = healthy as a horse, pitches like one.
(Chester Trout from Dallas)
Yes. This. (Matthew Kory)
2012-10-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any non-superstar/star-level players who could be non-tendered that teams should kick the tires on?
(jlarsen from chicago)
With the caveat that I did less than two seconds of research, some interesting names to me are Kyle Blanks, George Kottaras, Nyjer Morgan, Mark Reynolds, Brendan Ryan, Gaby Sanchez, Geovany Soto, Ian Stewart, Drew Stubbs, Dallas Braden, Philip Humber, Tommy Hunter, Jair Jurrjens, Mike Pelfrey, and Jerome Williams. (Geoff Young)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rangers and Yankees, ALCS...who ya got?
(Adam J. Morris from lonestarball.com)
Thanks for stopping by, Adam. Rangers in five, they will drop game four when Tommy Hunter starts and A.J. Burnett plays the role of Good A.J. long enough to redeem his second half, but otherwise, it's all Rangers. (Marc Normandin)
2009-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know you are not much of an awards guy. But what do you think the chances of Tommy Hunter winning AL ROY? Especially if the Tigers shut down Porcello to rest his arm, and Hunter wins all 4 starts down the stretch to finish with 11 wins?
(Ira from Third base line)
Jackie Robinson Award! Say it with me, folks. By the way, why no love for Jeff Niemann, if we're talking about the AL's rookie hurlers? He's been worth more than twice what Porcello is. Hell, Hunter's already been worth more than Porcello in his 80+ innings. Elvis Andrus has been worth more than all of them though. (Marc Normandin)

2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day OneMoneyball16 (Calgary): How much merit is there to pulling Cliff Lee and bringing him back for Game 4? Tommy Hunter seems like a likely disaster for the Rangers.

This lead isn't exactly safe, but you're right, bypassing Hunter would really help the Rangers. It seems that the Rangers, like the Phillies before them, have made the determination that Lee just isn't built for starting on three days' rest, and would rather make sure of a Game One victory than risk pushing him past his natural limits. (Ben Lindbergh)
