BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Franquelis Osoria has a good sinker but no other pitch, but that's enough for him to get enough ground-ball outs to keep teams interested.
2008 Osoria is a true one-pitch pitcher, throwing sinker after sinker after sinker. He was born with six fingers on his right hand, which helps give him a unique grip on the pitch. When he keeps it low, he is moderately effective. When he doesn't, he's likely to find himself back in Triple-A. That sort of Quadruple-A status looks to be his limit.
2007 Skinny, six-fingered sinkerballer Franquelis Osoria got a long look with the 2005 Dodgers, but fell out of favor with the new regime; judging by his line, Las Vegas played without an infield when he pitched (.410 BABIP, but just .096 ISO). Lost in a roster crunch, he`ll rejoin Jim Tracy in Pittsburgh.
2006 Quick, name a major-league pitcher besides Antonio Alfonseca with six fingers on his pitching hand? If you guessed Osoria, you`re correct, although he`s got the normal number of fingers on his left hand. A mellifluously-named stringbean, he pitched well enough in his two-month stint with the Dodgers. He doesn`t have the raw stuff of Brazoban, but he`s a sinkerballer who makes his living on the ground (3.2 G/F ratio), and he was hell on righties, who hit just .140/.246/.193 against him. There`s always a spot in the bullpen for a guy who can do that.
