BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 When drafted in 2006, Zech Zinicola was considered a potential sleeper to make the 2007 big-league roster, but he struggled with his control last year, spoiling those premature expectations. He rebounded somewhat with a decent but hardly overpowering Arizona Fall League campaign
2007 The Nats pounced when University of Arizona reliever Zech Zinicola fell to them in the sixth round of last summer`s draft; with a low-90s fastball and a hard slider he might move up fast, and he has that unflappable quality teams like in relievers.
