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 Taken in the 26th round of the 2007 draft out of Merced College (Brian Fuentes, former Reds reliever Brad "The Animal" Lesley), Partch is a converted starter who went from being one of the most hittable pitchers in the minors to merely below average on moving to the bullpen. He pitched well in the Arizona Fall League, and the Reds responded by adding him to the 40-man roster.
