BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Dae-Eun Rhee hasn't been the pitcher the Cubs expected him to be since coming back from 2008 Tommy John surgery.
2011 A much-lauded Korean teen phenom when he signed in '07, Rhee's long-anticipated first full season was delayed by his comeback from Tommy John surgery. In the aggregate, it may not look like he was worth the wait, but remember that the Cubs placed him in High-A in his return from injury with less than 60 pro innings to his credit. His overall numbers look worse as a result of his running out of gas at the end of July, as he gave up 23 of his total 74 runs allowed in his last five starts (and in just 15 1/3 IP). It's perhaps a larger item of concern that his velocity only sat around 90, and his off-speed stuff didn't provide much in the way of swing-and-miss happiness. Even so, keep in mind that he was just 21, and that the Cubs can afford to grant him the time to develop.
2010 Dae-Eun Rhee achieved his 2009 goal of making it back to the mound after Tommy John surgery; 2010 will show us how his fastball/changeup combination will play.
2009 Another Korean prospect signed just last year, Dae-Eun Rhee is a power lefty with breaking stuff that will need work once he bounces back from Tommy John surgery; watch for his return to a stateside mound in the second half.

2010-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for answering my first question, Kevin. This will be my last one(albeit in two parts): What have you heard about Kim Jin-Yeong, the Korean pitcher that the Cubs reportedly signed for $1.2 million? Speaking of Korean pitchers, what do you expect from Dae-Eun Rhee, once he returns from TJ surgery?
(Kris from Chicago)
Yeong is very intriguing. Smooth easy arm with projection, already 90-92 mph as a teenager. Rhee really was one of the better arms in the Midwest League when healthy, so I'm looking forward to his return. (Kevin Goldstein)
