BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Much like World War Two, Kendry Moralesí fractured leg offered some aging players on the fringe of irrelevance an extended lease on big-league life. Michael Ryan hadnít had a comment in an annual or an at-bat in the majors since 2005, but earned both (quite likely for the last time) thanks to a hot spring training and an injury stack.
2005 When you're an annual contender for the Randy Bush roster spot, there's nothing worse than careerus interruptus. Not only is it inconveniently messy, it leaves you wondering when you'll get your next shot. Demoted after he failed to thrive in the role, Ryan's no threat to challenge the starters or Ford in the outfield, and reduced to competing with the Offermans of the world for the next-to-last spot on the roster.
2003 Tied for the minor league lead in extra-base hits in 2002, Ryan is one of those guys with a quick bat and no idea how to slow it down and thwack breaking stuff. Thatís not the end of the world; Earl Weaver would pinch-hit him against flamethrowing relievers and spot-start him against pitchers with weak off-speed repertoire. Ryan probably wonít be the next John Lowenstein or Matt Stairs, but he could surprise you.
2002 Ryan has performed well at each stop through the organization and had a pretty reasonable year at Edmonton. Defensively, he's a real mystery: quick, not fast, with a throwing motion that requires a long time to generate any heat. He doesn't have the traditional power stroke that you want in an outfielder, but he does hit the ball hard into the gaps. He'll start the season at Triple-A; if he hits, or if the Twins make a bunch of moves, he could end up meeting that projection.
2001 Mike Ryan is one of the new brand of tweeners: guys who canít field well enough to stick in the infield but who do enough as hitters to make their organizations move them to the outfield, where they have no chance of competing with the real prospects. Ryan had a big platoon split in Double-A, which could be enough to get him a career as a utility man in the Andy Fox mold. Most of these guys wind up like David Newhan or Chad Meyers.
2000 With Cuddyer around, Ryan was moved to second base. The Twins like his patience at the plate and were impressed with his second-half improvement in the field. Heís got improving power and heís young. If he survives the jump to Double-A, heíll eventually give the Twins reason to trade Todd Walker.
