BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2007 Preston Larrison came back from repeated elbow problems (and Tommy John surgery) to show he still throws a nifty sinker, but that likely won`t be enough to keep him on the 40-man.
2005 Another Tiger farmhand with mechanics that needed correcting; he apparently went through most of '03 overthrowing with alarming regularity. The new way of doing things made him more successful, but it didn't mean that his low-90s sinker was blowing people away. Then his elbow started hurting in August, and the exercise became purely academic. Out for the 2005 season after Tommy John surgery.
