BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Lefty starter Clayton Tanner's peripherals all headed in the wrong direction in his Double-A debut last year, suggesting that the Aussie sinkerballer has gone about as far as his mid-80s fastball and finesse repertoire will take him.
2010 Aussie southpaw Clayton Tanner has done well with a modest strike-thrower's assortment so far, making up with aptitude what he lacks in upside.
2009 Sinkerballing Clayton Tanner is one of the few high school pitchers in the Giants' system. Ironically, he offers the same low-ceiling finesse repertoire as his college educated brethren but is more studious and obsessive in his preparation than his matriculated mates.
2008 Left-hander Clayton Tanner doesn't have a ton in the way of pure stuff, but he has a fastball that's average or slightly better and an outstanding feel for his craft; he could move quickly as a back-of-the-rotation type
