BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Plucked from the Rangers for Jorge Cantu in 2010, Omar Poveda fanned a batter per inning at Triple-A, but is nothing more than a depth starter in a saturated system.
2012 Omar Poveda made 27 starts for Double-A Jacksonville in a healthy return from Tommy John surgery that cost him all of 2010. He finished the year strong, going 5-1 with a 3.87 ERA and .229 batting average allowed in the second half. More importantly, considering he’s likely to draw an assignment to the PCL in 2012, Poveda decreased his hit rate by more than 25 percent and struck out an additional batter per inning over his final 13 starts.
2011 Although Omar Poveda missed all of 2010 recovering from March Tommy John surgery, he's arguably the best pitcher received from the Rangers in the Jorge Cantu deal. Assuming he comes back without any post-op problems—not all do—what the Fish should find is a big-bodied Venezuelan with good command of a fastball that sits in the low 90s, a plus changeup, and no reliable, outstanding breaking pitch.
2010 Venezuelan control artist Omar Poveda has regressed the last couple of years while trying to find a pitch to miss bats at the more advanced levels.
2009 It's easy to forget about a guy like Omar Poveda in a system with this much pitching, but he still projects as an eventual fourth starter thanks to a good fastball and even better changeup.
2008 Venezuelan Omar Poveda is a long, skinny righty with excellent control of a three-pitch mix; he profiles as a rotation regular
