BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 Salmon's a power reliever who held his own in an extended tryout with the big league club last year. His value is limited by his vulnerability to lefty batters-the splitter he worked on last season to keep them off-balance was only moderately effective. A right-handed relief specialist seems like a luxury the Cincy roster can't afford.
2007 Having spent much of the last four seasons pitching for Chattanooga, Salmon`s a little older than you might otherwise expect a pitcher just added to the 40-man roster to be. He`s big and he throws hard, but his command comes and goes. Without a working second pitch, he ends up walking lefties who won`t go fishing. That said, he doesn`t rattle, and there`s always the possibility that he could stick as a rare situational righty.
