BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Trevor Reckling was once the Angels’ top pitching prospect. Loss of velocity and control hint that 2011 "elbow pain" may still be a problem, but the White Sox are hoping the long rest and good coaching will restore some of the luster.
2012 Trevor Reckling got his third crack at Double-A. He wasn't terrible—that's something—but the guy who was the Angels' top prospect in 2009 is just gone. He's only 22, but his middling peripherals look even worse now that he's in an age-appropriate league.
2011 Drafted out of high school in 2007, Reckling reached Triple-A shortly after turning 21, an achievement to be proud of. Unfortunately, the quality of his work for Salt Lake was nothing to brag about, as the lefty walked more batters than he struck out, posting an unsightly eight-plus ERA. Reckling returned to Double-A a beaten man, but showed occasional signs of brilliance after his demotion, including a 10-strikeout, one-walk performance against Springfield in late July. The southpaw isn’t blessed with a blistering fastball or the high strikeout totals that having one often confers, and his ground-ball rate went backward last season. Though he doesn’t possess rotation-topping talent, he retains a plus changeup and curve, and remains young enough to rehabilitate his prospect image.
2010 A seventh-round 2007 pick out of a Newark Catholic high school, Reckling has fast become one of the organization's elite pitching prospects. Raw, but possessing outstanding athleticism, he offers three plus pitches: a low-90s fastball with significant sink and a good changeup, plus a drop-off-the-table curve which some consider the system's best, although hitters often lay off of it while waiting for it to fall out of the zone. He barely unpacked at Rancho before traveling to the Travelers, and held his own as the league's youngest starter, wriggling out of jams caused by his high walk rate thanks to his ability to avoid contact and generate grounders. He'll need to improve his command of his secondary stuff to take the next developmental step.
2009 A seventh-round pick in 2007, Trevor Reckling looked to be worth much more than that during his pro debut, showcasing a curveball that some Midwest League scouts considered the best in the circuit.

2009-11-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)I just stole Trevor Reckling in the late rounds of my fantasy draft. I've been reading he has a great mix of pitches and has a chance to be special. What insight do you have on him?
(William J. Lapedomaine from Rock Ridge, TX)
If you have average velocity and below average control, it's going to be hard to be special. That said, I really like him as a future No. 3 starter. It's a weird thing that doesn't seem to be changing. The number of special prospects in baseball is tiny. 25 or less. If I say a guy is not a special prospect, that does NOT mean I don't like him. You can't have a roster filled with special players. You need good ones and solid ones as well, and prospects who project as even that are pretty damn good. If I say a guy isn't special, it doesn't mean I don't like him. (Kevin Goldstein)
