YearComment
2005 Powell has stuck around long enough to earn major league service time during the course of five different seasons. He hasn't pitched well during any of those big league trials, but that's what you'd expect from his middling minor league numbers. For you Scoresheet Baseball fans, this is Pitcher, AAA.
2003 Originally a Tigers’ farmhand, Powell spent three years in the Houston organization before returning as a free agent in November 2001. After going 10–3 in 20 starts at Toledo, the Tigers brought him up in late July, and he was bombed in six of his first nine big league starts. Sort of like Jason Beverlin, there are some minor league veterans who get that way for a reason. He has no future.
2001 Brian Powell is one of the “jewels” of the Brad Ausmus/C.J. Nitkowski trade, in which Gerry Hunsicker somehow surrendered an everyday catcher and valuable left-handed swingman for five non-prospects. To Randy Smith, if you can believe it. Brian Powell is a finesse right-hander who doesn’t have enough guile to get out Triple-A hitters; he's here because the Astros were desperate enough to give him five starts last year. Don’t expect them to make that mistake again.
1999 Brian Moehler, three years ago. He’s been undeniably successful in his minor league career, but his fastball is no jewel and his strikeout rate reflects that. He doesn’t have a great sinker, relying instead on a repertoire of pitches, but none of them are out pitches. He got rocked in his debut, and while I do think he may adjust and be a league-average pitcher for a year or two, I am very skeptical about his long-term chances.
1998 Control continues to improve, but I don’t think he’s got the stuff to make it in the majors. Throwing a curveball for a strike at Lakeland results in success; throwing the same pitch in the majors often results in whiplash.
