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 After three mostly disappointing seasons, Portillo showed better command of his mid-90s fastball and an improved breaking ball under the tutelage of former big-league pitcher Willie Blair, his pitching coach at Fort Wayne. The Venezuelan pitched well enough in the Midwest League to earn a promotion to Double-A in July. Not surprisingly, he struggled after skipping a level, walking three or more batters in all but one of his starts at San Antonio. The stuff is electric, and Portillo is young despite having been around seemingly forever. If his secondary pitches develop, he could be a front-line starter. If not, he could close games. Either way, we won't know for a while.
2012 Signed in 2008 out of Venezuela, Adys Portillo is a lithe right-hander whose stuff is ahead of his command. He throws hard (mid-90s), but his secondary pitches need work. Don't expect him in San Diego soon.
2011 Adys Portillo has not developed as fast as his $2-million signing bonus may have suggested he would, but he was only 18 in his second pro campaign. His fastball already consistently reaches the 94-95 range, but his command and control both need work: Portillo's strikeout rate climbed to a batter per inning, but his K/BB ratio at Low-A was just 1.6, and that came with five hit batsmen and 12 wild pitches in 62 innings.
2010 Adys Portillo set a record for Venezuelan amateur free agents when he received a $2 million signing bonus from the Padres in 2008. With a 95 mph fastball, he's an intriguing prospect despite poor results in his first season in the United States. He was 17 and in a new country, so cut him some slack.

2012-07-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)We know you'll miss Adys Portillo as he's ticketed to San Antonio, but who else do you look forward to seeing in Lake Elsinore as a possible late-season promotion?
(Bryant from San Diego)
I would love to see Peterson or Austin Hedges, maybe Wisler. Given his age (22), Peterson seems the most likely. (Geoff Young)
