BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Socolovich is the least interesting type of player in the majors: a replacement-level middle reliever. Even very good teams are sometimes called upon to press such a player into service in the lineup or the starting rotation, but replacement level is awfully low for middle relievers. If you're giving significant playing time to a 0.0-WARP sixth-inning guy, something has gone wrong somewhere along the way.
