BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 The return for trading Jose Contreras to the Rockies, Brandon Hynick only solidified his org-soldier status.
2010 Acquired from the Rockies in the Jose Contreras deal, righty Brandon Hynick is a pure finesse righty, but he's pretty darn good at it, as any ERA under 4.00 at Triple-A Colorado Springs is impressive.
2008 The Rockies pushed Brandon Hynick to the Cal League, and he responded with a 4.0 K/BB. As a command guy, however, his upside his limited.
