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 There are three guys named Luis Marte currently in pro ball, though only the righty reliever for the Tigers has made the majors, and he'll likely put in an appearance there again in 2013.
2012 A slight right hander whose development has been hampered by elbow and shoulder problems, Marte earned a September call-up after a productive year in Erie, and will get a long look this spring. Last year he showed good command of a fastball he can boost into the low 90s, changing speeds with aplomb and keeping hitters off balance with a slider, curve, and changeup. Itís the sort of arsenal that bowls them over in Double-A but doesnít guarantee success in The Show, meaning heíll likely act as minor league insurance for the more pedigreed Daniel Schlereth and Collin Balester.
2010 Luis Marte excited everyone with the way he pitched in early 2008, but the pint-sized righty came down with elbow trouble and hasn't been the same since.
