BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Scott Maine has bounced around an awful lot in the past year for a guy with such lofty strikeout totals; he still has the potential to be a decent lefty out of the pen.
2012 The primary piece in the 2009 Aaron Heilman trade, Maine works his fastball and either changeup or slider to get out both right-handed and left-handed batters. Since joining the Cubs organization, he's shown great peripherals in the minors, notably the lofty strikeout rate. He should be ready for a major-league bullpen job in 2012, and even though minor-league relief stats don't translate very well to the majors, he has enough velocity and movement that he could quickly become another two-way lefty to hold down the occasional seventh inning.
2011 If you are searching for a reason why the Grabows of the world don't have to cost you $7.5 million, consider how easily the Cubs found a fully functional alternative in Maine: by ditching Aaron Heilman on Arizona, straight up. Maine doesn't throw especially hard, touching the low 90s with a fastball he uses effectively to set up a slider and change. He can get a bit cute against lefties, losing them on walks more than you'd like, but he can fool enough people often enough to be a useful second southpaw in a big-league bullpen.
2010 A southpaw reliever with very impressive strikeout rates in Double- and Triple-A last season, Scott Maine could fight for a bullpen spot with the Cubs, who acquired him for Aaron Heilman in November.
