BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 An injury once again slowed Dennis Raben's climb through the system, as knee surgery ended his season in June. In 116 Cal League games over two seasons, Raben has slugged .626 and hit 30 home runs, though 22 of those bombs and a disproportionate share of his rate stats have come at home.
2011 Dennis Raben missed of all of 2009 recovering from knee surgery, which put him well behind the developmental curve. The bat-only first baseman did his best to catch up last season, hitting well after a promotion to High-A, but [insert standard High Desert disclaimer here]. Eleven of his 12 homers in the Cal League came at home, where he slugged .906, but he’ll have to face the cruel world outside Adelanto eventually.
2009 The Mariners first signed Dennis Raben as a pitcher out of high school, but lost him to the University of Miami. Round two went to Seattle, however, as the second-rounder became the Mariners' highest draft pick to sign last season. The big lefty showed plenty of power in his Northwest League debut.
