BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Purchased from the Athletics for cash considerations, Trystan Magnuson is nothing to write home about, in a system full of promising young pitchers, all of whom could become relievers if need be.
2011 Trystan Magnuson, a reliever with good control but average stuff, was shipped to Oakland in the Rajai Davis deal. He's tall and has a decent fastball, but his ceiling is high enough to accommodate only a middle reliever comfortably.
