BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 The last time Steve Garrison pitched in the Pacific Northwest, he put up an 8.87 ERA in Portland. As if 200-plus cloudy days per year weren't depressing enough.
2011 Plucking Steve Garrison off waivers from the Padres has outgoing assistant Kevin Towers’ paw prints all over it. New Jersey native Garrison has yet to find success at the upper levels, though a permanent move to the bullpen may help him pick up a couple of ticks on a heater that tops out in the low 90s.
2010 Steve Garrison blew out his knee late in the AFL season, this after he'd already missed most of 2009 recovering from shoulder surgery, but he's on the 40-man for his effective mix of curves, sliders, and changes to set up an OK sinker.
2009 The Padres are loaded with finesse pitchers at the upper levels—good finesse pitchers mind you, but ones for whom it is difficult to project anything more than some back-end rotation possibilities. Garrison was probably the best of the group, with spotless command of a four-pitch mix. He threw a seven-inning no-hitter early in the 2008 season, but things began going slowly downhill from there, and he eventually required shoulder surgery. Garrison cannot afford to lose much more velocity, and we won't know if he did until some time around midseason.
2008 Steve Garrison is left-handed and throws 90 mph, but was less than impressive in the Florida State League before being traded to the Padres in the Linebrink deal. Just 21, there's time for him to figure it out
