BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 With a plus fastball and a hard slider with good tilt, reliever Bruce Billings needs to harness his command to have any shot at sticking around at the major league level in 2012.
2011 A late-round pick out of San Diego State in 2007, 25-year-old righty Bruce Billings was moved to the bullpen in Double-A last year. His low-90s fastball and solid slider proved effective in his new role and in the Arizona Fall League, prompting his addition to the 40-man roster in November.
