BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2006 Bizarroworld intersects with Major League Baseball in the life of Uggy Urbina. After 2004`s gut-wrenching wait for kidnappers to release his mother in Venezuela, Urbina pitched in a career-high 81 games between Detroit and Philly before returning to his home country as a free agent in the offseason. There, he was promptly involved in another bizarre incident and jailed on charges of attempted murder. With his trial yet to start as of this writing, his future is anyone`s guess. A useful setup pitcher because he varies the speed on his average fastball, Urbina survives on a good changeup. But a good changeup and ability to change speeds only gets you so far in the Venezuelan Penal League.
2005 While America's attention is squarely focused on the Middle East, some of the most dangerous places in the world are in our own hemisphere. There's nothing to say about the kidnapping of Urbina's mother, still unresolved as of press time, other than that we wish both of them the best of fortunes. Urbina returned to Venezuela over the winter and was working out with the Caracas club, but had not pitched in a game. As a pitcher, he's extremely similar to Troy Percival, the man who will be replacing him as the Tigers' closer, his strikeouts more the result of guile than his declining raw stuff.
2004 No amount of park or league adjustments can explain Urbina lopping nearly three runs off his ERA from Texas to Florida; the Fish simply caught lightning in a bottle with every reliever they acquired last year. Uggy still has that same violent delivery that makes Will Carroll squirm and James Andrews prep an operating table, but he looks like he's put injuries behind him, with no serious owies since 2000. A half-notch below the Billy Wagner/Keith Foulke class first targeted in the off-sed,,cin, he attracted plenty of second-tier shoppers in the free agent market, though he remained unsigned at press time.
2003 Urbina is an effective enough reliever, but you can’t help a bit of buyer’s remorse and wonder if the Sox wouldn’t be better off with Tomo Ohka. As one of the younger free-agent relievers on the market this year, Urbina might have expected a big payday, but he had to settle for a one-year deal with the Rangers. Is the market getting smarter? Sixty-inning closers simply are not worth that much, and certainly the Red Sox are better off applying the money to their offensive needs.
2002 Acquiring Urbina was an understandable overreaction, but an overreaction nonetheless. Derek Lowe blew several early saves, including two against the Yankees that, had they been converted, would have put the Sox in first place in late August. However, the Sox’ main problem was that they weren’t scoring enough runs, so handing two pitching prospects to Montréal for Urbina was a bad move. Handing him about $9 million in arbitration will be a worse one, especially with plenty of other good relievers in the pen.
2001 In April, Ugueth Urbina woke up with his elbow locked in position. He had to have surgery to have bone chips removed and a second surgery in July to remove another chip. He’s supposed to be 100% in camp, but the Expos should take seriously any offers they get for him between now and the July deadline. Closers are the coin you use to fleece organizations inclined to give Jose Mesa a seven-figure contract, and saves are the baubles you shine in their eyes while lifting their wallets.
2000 In what seems like a consistent voting pattern for sportswriters, Urbina was named the league’s best closer in postseason polling in the year after his best year. If there’s a guy with a great shot to rub Bobby Thigpen’s name out of the record books for the single-season saves record in the next two years, it’s Urbina. Like Thigpen did, Urbina has several critical factors in his favor: a good rotation, an offense that doesn’t score a lot of runs, a manager who isn’t afraid to bring him into a game in the eighth inning and a team that should improve.
1999 The second-best closer in baseball this year, and a deserving All-Star, now and for years to come. He's locked in at super-low prices for the next three years, and Alou has remained careful not to overuse him. I still think the injury worries were overblown, and that he could have been a great starter.
1998 Certainly rose to the challenge of being handed the closer’s role, picking up 27 saves while striking out 84 in 64 innings. Had trouble getting going after a good April, but posted a 2.43 ERA after the All-Star break. Continues to get pounded by left-handed batters.
1997 Urbina has terrific talent and an idea of what to do with it, but had an atrocious platoon split last year. Right-handers were handcuffed to a .153 average, but lefties hit .315 and pounded Urbina for a .511 slugging average. The Expos have talked about him as a possible replacement for Rojas, and he did post a 1.99 ERA out of the bullpen, but he won’t survive for long if lefties continue to get the better of him. It may be just a one-year fluke, since he didn’t have anywhere near the same split in AAA in 1995. If the Expos keep him in the rotation he might win 200 games before he’s through.
1996  Unquestionably the Expos' best pitching prospect. His perormance hasn't been stellar, but in light of his age and an impressive 1995 season, he's almost ready for a starting spot in Montreal, and could surprise. His arm has been used carefully, with no real sign of abuse, so he could be a durable pitcher down the road.
