BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 A 15th-round pick in the 2010 draft, Whitley and his changeup pitched their way up to Double-A Trenton in year two of his career, then continued to excel in the Arizona Fall League. Whitley is a big guy (6-foot-4) but doesn't throw hard, with a fastball that sits in the 89-91 range. The Yankees thought that if this two-way player in college were to focus solely on pitching, he might have starter potential. His 2011 strikeout rate of 7.6 per nine out of the 'pen does not seem to bode well for such a transformation. He was hard on right-handed hitters, at least at Tampa (.193 average). They hit .288 against him at Trenton, left-handers hitting .276. Clearly there is an adjustment to be made, relieving or not.
