BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 After reaching the majors at the end of 2006, Brian Slocum missed the majority of 2007 with elbow problems, but he pitched well in Venezuela this winter and will serve as a Triple-A insurance policy this year.
2007 The pitching version of a tweener, Slocum might not have the off-speed stuff to start, but also lacks the power arsenal to be a late-innings reliever. Accordingly, the Indians aren`t sure what to do with him and have moved him back and forth between the rotation and the bullpen over the past two seasons.
