BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 The older brother of the more heralded Colorado pitcher Drew has traveled a tough road to the verge of relevance, only to have offseason surgery on his lower back that is expected to sideline him all of 2013. He was drafted back in 2003 and only made his MLB debut last year after being discarded by three teams, dealing with alcoholism and injuries, and spending some time in the independent leagues. Although his command is a bit loose, he keeps the walks down. His 94-95 mph heater and bat-missing 11-to-5 curve are both good enough to retire big-league hitters—and good enough to be worth a post-surgery rehab effort.
2005 A big-bodied right-hander who certainly looks as though he can bring it. Ecxcept he can't. He's shown great command thus far, but his average stuff raises concerns about how he'll adapt to the higher levels. Still, he merits following in a system this thin.
