BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Rich Rundles teased the Tribe with his Buffalo hunting, but too many hitters shot down his offerings like so many Bill Codys.
2009 Drafted by the Red Sox in 1999, Rundles bounced to the Expos, Mets, and Cardinals before making it up with Cleveland in his 10th season. Surprisingly, none of his other clubs did more than dabble with Rundles as a reliever; the Indians decided to move him to the bullpen full-time, which will ensure his long-term financial security. Rundles only rolls his heater up there in the mid-80s, but fends hitters off with a strong slider and curve. His three-quarters delivery has helped him hold lefties to a 526 OPS since joining the Tribe, and he could serve as the LOOGY that Cleveland lacked last year.
