BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Brandon Villafuerte pitched unusually poorly with men on base last year, but could still get a shot from a club with a weak bullpen.
2005 Not long ago, Villafuerte started the season as the promising closer for the Padres, on the track for fame, fortune, and gaudy save totals. No longer the case, but Villafuerte can still get people out. He had a bad run in 2004, but those numbers are strongly against the trend; barring some sort of injury, he's a rebound candidate, more so since he'll be in SBC Park.
2003 So the Rangers had no use for a bullpen guy who was right around a strikeout per inning, cost the major league minimum, and didnít have a history of antisocial behavior, huh? Whatever. Villafuerte was rescued from the Ranger organization and responded by keeping his breaking pitches down in the zone, mixing in a fastball, and executing a plan against each hitter. He did a very nice job in the Padre pen, and heís renewable for another year after this. A great pickup by the Padres, and a great illustration of the state of the two franchises.
