BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Local ties and third-round money enabled the Brewers to convince this native of nearby LaCrosse—a 2006 draft-and-follow—to bypass a strong commitment to the University of Arkansas. Seidel is a sinkerballer who boasts a strong changeup and an advanced feel for pitching; as his big frame fills out he’s expected to add velocity. He struggled initially at West Virginia, with a 5.50 ERA before the break, but he missed more bats and got more help from his fielders to lower that to 3.68 after the break, allowing just two earned runs over his final five starts.
