BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Trinidad compensates for middling stuff with good control, walking just 2.5 batters per nine innings at Triple-A over the last two seasons. A sinker/slider type whose fastball usually doesn't break 90 mph, he features a good feel for his changeup, but doesn't induce enough grounders to succeed without whiffs. While Trinidad's inability to miss bats would likely expose him in a starting role at the big-league level, he has a shot to fashion a career in middle relief.
2010 Trinidad's a Dominican (no Tobago TBNL) gifted with excellent control, as he's walked less than two men per nine in his minor-league career. Whether that will translate to the big leagues is another story—he doesn't miss a lot of bats, and his ground-ball rates aren't as high as you'd like for a finesse lefty heading to Minute Maid Park. However, he's been pitching to contact all along, rolling with the outcomes, so if there's on thing that could be improved, it's sharpening his off-speed stuff. He'll head back to Round Rock to start the year, but don't be surprised to see him in Houston's rotation at some point.
2009 Another prospect too old for his leagues, Trinidad is an extreme finesse pitcher who lives off of his changeup. He also has a consistent history of reverse splits, doing a fair bit worse against left-handed hitters, and of allowing fewer hits than you'd expect. He'll float the occasional change for a home run. His future is likely in the bullpen, the Fiddler's Green of Left-Handed Persons.
