BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Jakubauskas has spent his entire MLB career as a swing man, splitting time in the rotation and bullpen as far back as 2007 in Double-A after the Mariners plucked him from the independent leagues. In the majors, he's been less successful as a starter (4.7 K/9, 3.4 BB/9) then as a reliever (5.8 K/9, 2.9 BB/9), when he can keep his fastball consistently at 91-92 mph as opposed to 89. Having only a looping curve to play off his relatively straight heater also suits him better for work out of the pen. Jakubauskas spent the second half of last season in the bullpen for the Orioles, occasionally being asked to pitch two or three innings at a time, and that seems to be the role he's best suited for. He'll try to win a spot in Arizona's bullpen.
2011 "Ill-fated" is a good way to describe Chris Jakubauskas' brief career with the Pirates, as he was struck in the head by a line drive off the bat of then-Astro Lance Berkman in the first inning of his first start last season on April 24, suffered a concussion, and never returned to the majors.
2010 After hanging around the independent leagues until 2007, Jakubauskas finally made The Show as a 30-year-old rookie utility pitcher in 2009. His experience was not exactly successful. He got plugged into the rotation in mid-April after Ryan Rowland-Smith got hurt, but handed the opportunity back before the season flipped over to June. He had decent results against right-handed hitters, holding them to a .276 OBP, but lefties had little problem with him, and he couldn't keep either kind of batter in the ballpark. The Pirates claimed him on waivers and will give him a shot at a utility role as an 11th or 12th pitcher, which isn't much, but to his credit the man did make it when nobody would have expected him to.

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-06-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should I go to the Jay/O's game tonight or watch Super 8 instead?
(Ron from Toronto)
That's a tough one, Ron. I saw Super 8 a couple nights ago, and I wasn't impressed, even though I was definitely the target audience and genuinely looking forward to it. Like Roger Ebert, I felt that the movie sort of fell apart after the first hour. Ebert still liked it, but I found it quite forgettable.(To paraphrase Darth Vader, the Ebert is more forgiving than I am.)

Then again, this isn't an Orioles home game, so if the other option is making a trip to Rogers Centre to see the long-awaited showdown between Chris Jakubauskas and Carlos Villanueva, you might want to consider taking in a talkie. How much are movie tickets in Toronto? (Ben Lindbergh)
