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 For the first time since coming stateside, Yoervis Medina didn't pitch at three levels in a season, and the stability suited the hard-thrower.
2012 The Mariners kept Medina in Venezuela for four years, so now he's moving quickly through the system... mostly for worse. He started the season in High-A after making just six starts in the Midwest League last year. His new home, High Desert, is just the rottenest place in the world to pitch, but that doesn't entirely excuse his huge drop in strikeouts, or the 19 home runs he allowed in 105 innings. He was rescued by a social promotion to Double-A, but the home runs followed him. Medina is a thick body who throws hard, has good breaking stuff, and doesn't walk many, but it might do him good to get settled in and repeat a level.
2011 Yoervis Medina has spent all of 5 2/3 innings above A-ball, but that didnít stop the Mariners from deeming him worthy of protection from the Rule 5 Draft. The big righty racked up the strikeouts, using a fastball that touched 94 to set up some of the best breaking stuff in the Northwest League.
