BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Originally drafted as a third baseman, Travis Schlichting got his first real taste of pitching in the majors last year, spending all of July with the Dodgers in the longest of four recalls. Lefties went 6-for-35 against his sinker/slider arsenal, and he generated plenty of grounders, but he got lost in the numbers game. Shoulder pain shut him down in August.
2010 A fourth-round pick as a third baseman by the Devil Rays in 2003, Schlichting returned to the mound while in the Angels chain in 2006 (he'd pitched in high school), but didn't emerge as a pitching prospect until reaching the Dodger organization. Since then, he's made fast progress, reaching the majors after less than 75 innings of work above Rookie- and indie-league ball thanks to a 90-94 mph sinking fastball and a slider that Baseball America considered the organization's best. Alas, his 2009 season was bookended by lower back woes, but if healthy, he'll get another shot at helping the big club.
2009 Travis Schlichting washed out as a third-base prospect with the D-Rays, but he's taken up pitching with decent results.
