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 upside portion of the Doug Fister trade showed his downside, as Fernando Martinezís there-in-theory power continued to not show up in games and a balky hamstring cost him more than a month.
2012 Francisco Martinez is the upside piece of the Doug Fister trade, a Venezuelan third baseman who has been among his league's youngest players since the Tigers signed him in 2007. Because of his youth, he has never put up eye-popping numbers, but had a fine month with Jackson after the trade.
