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 The Mariners kept Luetge, a Rule 5 pick, on the active roster all season and got a pretty good specialist out of him: Lefties hit .193/.289/.241, while righties (895 OPS) were happier to see him. Against lefties, Luetge leans heavily on breaking pitches, and when he sneaks a two-seam fastball into the mix he gets whiffs. Heís less confident throwing the breakers to righties, though, and they sit on a fastball that rarely tops 90. He didnít allow an earned run until his 26th outing, and his ERA was nearly 7.00 after that, though his underlying performance didnít change much. The combination of a bad second half and the emergence of Oliver Perez makes him inessential, but heís cheap.
