BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 An organizational arm, the kind of guy who's been providing depth to minor league rosters for years, Waters was struggling in Norfolk when he got a most unexpected call to come to Baltimore. Let's be honest: only a team desperate for warm bodies would have called up a player like Waters who was pitching the way Waters was. To his credit he made the most of it (with some luck—note the low BABIP), pitching a little over his head and picking up a few wins. Don't expect a repeat.
