BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Ground-ball specialist Robbie Weinhardt keeps the ball in the park and gets a few strikeouts, but he lost his spot on the 40-man last summer and is looking more like an organizational afterthought.
2011 Weinhardt’s sinker/slider repertoire doesn’t cause jaws to drop, but it generates copious grounders, keeps the ball in the park, and more often than not puts zeroes on the scoreboard—at least in the minors, where Weinhardt owns a career 1.64 ERA and has struck out more than a man per inning. His big-league debut was far less impressive, but the organization saw enough in Weinhardt to pencil him into this year’s bullpen, where his sinker will come in handy when the Tigers need a double play.
2010 Robbie Weinhardt's fastball/breaking ball combination isn't good enough for big-league closing, but he still could help the Detroit bullpen as early as mid-2010.
2009 Robbie Weinhardt was drafted in the 10th round last summer after showing improved velocity in his senior season for Oklahoma State, then used it to good effect in his debut.
