BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Just a 34th-round pick in 2007, Judy established himself as a quality relief prospect for the Indians after posting big strikeout numbers the past three years. A tall, aggressive reliever with good stuff, Judy boasts a four-seamer that sits in the low 90s and touches 96, while his slider has developed into a plus pitch that can generate whiffs. This two-pitch repertoire can make Judy an extreme fly-ball pitcher, and his struggle to keep the ball down in the zone embittered his cup of coffee in 2011. He has the stuff to succeed as a middle-innings reliever, but he may still need more seasoning.
2011 Another part of a crowded bullpen picture, Josh Judy has a plus fastball/breaking-ball combination, and is one of any number of relievers that is nearly big-league ready.
2010 If there are relief prospects, Josh Judy's one of them; he's had a mid-season promotion every year with the Indians, and with his velocity creeping into the 93-94 mph range, there’s a possibility he may be in the pen sometime in 2010. Suggested nicknames include "Judge," "Punch," or "Daughter."
