BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 One of the first members of the 2011 draft class to reach The Show, Nick Maronde is attempting to convert back to starting after a few disastrously wild stints in Anaheim's bullpen. It hasn't worked yet, so for now he's marooned in the high-minors friend zone.
2015 The velocity of 2012 failed to return for Nick Maronde, and a midseason strain of his throwing shoulder revealed the time bomb that had been loudly ticking; he was designated for assignment in mid-December.
2014 After hitting 95 in a promising 2012 debut, Nick Maronde had a much tougher time maintaining velocity or command in 2013. The organization won’t use the “I” word, but clearly something broke a little.
2013 Maronde ended 2011 pitching in the short-season Pioneer League playoffs. He ended 2012 as the Angels’ September surprise, a lefty relief ace. As a starter, Maronde has excellent fastball command to both sides of the plate, and to lefties and righties alike, with mid-90s velocity. His slider has yet to pass the test against higher-level righties, and he telegraphs his changeup. He could largely ignore both flaws in his short big-league relief appearances. For that reason, his September performance was misleading. The real Maronde has both considerably more upside and more question marks.
2012 Maronde is a big lefty with a mid-90s fastball and above-average changeup, which was enough to mow down the Pioneer League even without a refined breaking pitch. Maronde was signed by Angels scout Tom Kotchman, an organizational elder who also managed Maronde at Orem. Kotchman picks almost always get high marks for demeanor, and Maronde already has a reputation in the organization as mature and confident on the mound. That reputation won't slow his ascent up the ladder.

They weren't anywhere near it, which just means they weren't in the discussion. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
