BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Novoa`s season was sidetracked in spring training by Valley Fever, a lung infection he contracted by inhaling the spores of a fungus found in the soil of the Southwest. He recovered and settled into his generic bullpen role; he can throw in the 90s, but pipes it down the middle way too often.
2006 Is Novoa a speed gun junkie? When he tries to get into the mid-90s his fastball flattens out, but when he settles down into the low 90s it acquires a bit of movement and becomes a better pitcher. Since his slider isn`t particularly crisp, he might be better off attacking hitters instead of scoreboard speed meters. Almost certain to be crowded out of the pen this spring if everyone`s healthy.
2005 He's already the prize of the deal that dumped Randall Simon on the Pirates. Novoa's major league line looks ugly, but it was mostly the result of a disastrous take-one-for-the-team outing in Anaheim in which he gave up five runs in less than an inning. His translated strikeout rates have improved at each rung of the ladder, which attests to his major league-caliber stuff, and he has a good chance to be what Fernando Rodney was not—a quality set-up man from out of the system.
