BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 A town of fewer than 17,000, Defiance, Ohio, could soon boast three big-league pitchers if Kime follows in the footsteps of Chad Billingsley and Jonathon Niese. Kime was a reliever at the University of Louisville, but he moved into the rotation at Mahoning Valley and performed well in two-to-four-inning stints. The righty has a durable frame and repeats his delivery well, but while he shows feel for his breaking ball and cutter, the overall package needs refinement for him to become a mid-rotation starter at the highest level. His history in the bullpen gives him a fallback plan.

2016-09-26 20:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Dace Kime? Is he still an MLB prospect?
(Truganini from CO)
He didn't make my (internal) list of 200+ prospects going into this season and he went on to have a bad season, so he'll go into 2017 even lower ranked than he was going into the 2016 season. He's probably not a fantasy prospect, at least not as currently constituted. He could still make it to the majors at some point, though, especially since he's a big dude. Pitchers can go from non-prospect to prospect fairly quickly, though, by learning a new pitch, a new delivery, or just by getting healthy for the first time in years. And he's in a good organization for pitchers who need to develop. He walked 34 batters in 26 innings in the minors this year, though, which is bad. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-06-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)What team is the worst at developing pitchers? The Indians system has a lot of hype, but the pitchers they have taken in the top 90 since 2002 have combined for only 3.2 WAR in an Indians uniform (excluding the 6.1 WAR they got from trading Pomeranz/White for Ubaldo). The list is depressing: Jeremy Guthrie, Brian Solcum, Adam Miller, Jeremy Sowers, Justin Hoyman, Scott Lewis, David Huff, Steven Wright (traded for Lars Anderson), Trey Haley, Alex White, Drew Pomeranz, Dillon Howard, Mitch Brown, Dace Kime...are you as depressed as I am yet? No? How about the fact only Sowers and Huff had at least 1 career WAR for the Indians, making them probably the 2nd or 3rd best in a group of 14 picks.
(Truganini from CO)
I wouldn't say there are specific teams that you know are bad at developing pitchers but there are some concerns. Seeems like Baltimore has had some recent bad luck with Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey, and Kevin Gausman just to name a few. Obviously Colorado has had its own troubles with Tyler Anderson, Tyler Matzek, Mike Nikorak (at least right now), Drew Pomeranz, Christian Friedrich, and Peter Tago. -SG (Live Draft Chat)
