BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2001 Jay Spurgeon jumped all the way from the Carolina League to the majors in 2000, though at first glance it's hard to understand how he got out of Frederick. The first glance is deceptive; he had back-to-back May starts in which he was hammered for eight runs apiece and was promoted to Bowie after allowing just six hits in his last three games and 20 innings in the Carolina League. He posted very impressive records (8-2 at Frederick, 3-0 Bowie, 2-0 Rochester, 1-1 Baltimore), succeeding with only an average fastball but a sharp-breaking slider. All of his numbers indicate that he's a fairly extreme fly-ball pitcher, which is going to be dangerous in Camden Yards.
