BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 This is why no major league team wants High Desert as an affiliate. Cota was signed as a draft-and-follow for first-round money in 2004 and probably has the best arm in the system. He throws harder than all but a few starters in the minor leagues and had a promising season as a 19 year old for Burlington in 2005. All that is meaningless when you pitch in a shoe box--Cota had a 7.09 ERA despite striking out twice as many batters as he walked. The Royals will give him another shot as a starter in Wilmington, with the bullpen as a backup option.
2006 Probably the best pitching prospect in the system, but years away from making an impact. Cota was a 10th-round pick in 2003 who signed for first-round money as a draft-and-follow the next spring. His fastball was voted the best in the Midwest League last year, on account of velocity and late movement. The Royals have made polish a priority over potential in their recent draft picks, so Cota`s upside is a refreshing change of pace. Keeping him healthy is a sufficient goal in the short term.
