BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Josh Newman was the third relief pitcher that the Royals poached from the Rockies, but like Capellan, he didn't work out quite as well as Ramon Ramirez did.
2008 Changeup artist Josh Newman has impressive numbers, but his stuff is that of a swingman or long reliever, and he hasn't been handled like a prospect.
2007 A 2004 19th-rounder out of Ohio State, Josh Newman put himself on the future LOOGY map with his work at Tulsa, limiting lefties to .179/.248/.239 before doing good winter work in the AFL.
