BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Finally healthy for a little while, the erstwhile closer prospect got back to the majors and pitched well. Then he got unhealthy again, straining his heretofore sound right shoulder in June and eventually undergoing season-ending surgery. There are so many reasons to like him—in addition to what you see above, he had a 2-to-1 GB/FB ratio—but he's kind of the 21st-century version of Steve Ontiveros.
