BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 With 96 walks in 104 innings over the past two seasons, all the strikeout stuff and left-handedness in the world won't save Mauricio Robles.
2012 Mauricio Robles, a short lefty with strikeout stuff but little control, was plagued with elbow injuries in 2011, limiting him to 10 very poor starts. His control problems followed him to Venezuela, where he allowed 10 runs and walked four batters in his first inning of winter work. He may have to be cut open before he gets better and then he likely lands in the bullpen.
2011 Billy Wagner-sized southpaw Robles possesses strikeout stuff to rival anyone in the Seattle system. A product of the Jarrod Washburn trade, the Venezuelan’s heater sits in the mid-90s and can touch 97, but he’s more than a one-trick pony, featuring a sharp curve, developing changeup, and brand-new two-seamer, which cuts more than it sinks. The lefty’s max-effort delivery and resultant poor control could land him—like Wagner—in a bullpen’s late-inning mix, though he’s not yet at the end of his rotation rope.
2010 Mr. French might be the first man to the majors received in the Washburn trade, but little Venezuelan Mauricio Robles has a nice fastball/curve mix and command, and should be the better prospect.
2009 Smallish Venezuelan southpaw Mauricio Robles mixes in a nice curve to offset normal lefty velocity, but messy mechanics for the former outfielder contribute to command issues.
